Gem Theatre Presents...

October 10, 2015 -- Community Theatre Presents: Steel Magnolias, Directed by Kim Klarich Two Performances.
This heart wrenching drama is about a beauty shop, in Louisana owned by Truvy, and the tragedies of all of her clients. Through the views of these different women we see love, apathy, pain, loss, secrecy and a desperate attempt at living a life of happiness. Dreams built and burnt, the power of hope, the love between a mother and her child and the bond that can be so unbreakable between true friends. Their strengths will be sorely tried, their wit often stretched thin and their hearts broken. With the changing of seasons and the falling of the Steel Magnolias. Showtime Saturday October 10th 7:30 PM, Sunday October 11th 2:30 PM. Adults $10.00 Children 12 & under $5.00 Group rate for ten or more on one check. For Information and Reservations 806-226-2187.

November 7, 2015 -- THE TEXAS GUITAR QUARTET From Houston, Texas
The Texas Guitar Quartet members bring their unique passions and talents to an ensemble dedicated to presenting chamber music of the highest quality. The quartet has developed an exciting repertoire by commissioning new works and creating their own arrangements and compositions. Recently, the quartet commissioned Tracks, a major new work by composer Peter Lieuwen. They have also premiered works by Andrew Dickinson, Alfredo Barros, Mark Anthony Cruz, and Joseph Williams II. Their daring arrangements, such as Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, offer fresh perspective on works from other repertoires and push the boundaries of the medium. Touring repertoire includes Symphony No. 40, K. 550 by W. A. Mozart; Egmont Overture, Op. 84 by Ludwig van Beethoven; Pavane pour une enfante défunte by Maurice Ravel; Red by Joseph Williams II; and Tracks by Peter Lieuwen. Showtime: 7:30 pm.
