LSC-CyFair Summer Theater - Awesome Allie

Awesome Allie is the story of Allie, just a normal kid who is... headed into outer space! With he help of her trusty talking dog Captain Chaos and Rover the Dancing Robot from Mars, Allie's on a mission across the solar system to save Earth, and maybe learn some things about science along the way. But she'd better be home in time for dinner! Grab your space suit and get ready for an adventure that's out of this world?

You can buy tickets and see schedule here.

Noises Off - Unity Theater, Brehnam TX

Joshua Estrada, our CyFair Fine Arts Coordinator, invites our ALL members to see the play, Noises Off  at the Unity Theater in Brenham. Joshua works at the theater as well as his wife, who is in this play. The play runs from June 14-July 1 (dark Mon-Wed). 

Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and Tony nominated for Best Play, this is an uproarious depiction of what goes on (and what goes wrong) backstage during a theatrical performance. The play chronicles the rocky final dress rehearsal and subsequent disastrous performances of a farce called Nothing On. As the cast and crew of a third-rate touring company attempt to negotiate the farcical demands of the play-within-the-play — fast entrances and exits, cases of mistaken identity, clothing quickly doffed and donned — a hilarious parade of madcap backstage mishaps threatens to derail the proceedings altogether. 

If you are looking for something to do this summer, take a drive out to Brehnam for the show or make a weekend out of it in beautiful Washington County.

Beers to You!

Another fun beer class at H-E-B Fairfield with David Nicholas of H-E-B and Chad Philbeam of Beer Logic. We learned about the evolving craft beer business, types of beer, and different tastes of beer. So, we had to taste a few to experience those differences. Phil provided a lot of information in addition to a good dose of humor.

You can listen to Chad on What's On Tap Radio on KPRC AM 950. Chad has allowed us to use his copyrighted presentation for the  purposes of our ALL class only. You can view the presentation here.

The History of the Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers were formed in the 1820s to protect the frontier from Indians. Over the many years since, the Rangers have had their ups and downs and their mission has changed many times. Today, it is one of the most respected group of investigators in the country. Monte Parks of Precinct 4 gave a great presentation on their history coinciding with the history of Texas and the United States.

You can view Monte's presentation here.
