GLCT Presents Comedy Play "All the Great Books (Abridged)"

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2013/4/9 21:49:12 (673 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowThe Greater Lewisville Community Theatre, as it continues its 30th anniversary season, proudly presents the uproarious comedy, All the Great Books (Abridged). The show runs weekends April 26-May 12 with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 8 P.M. and Sundays at 3 P.M.

Made famous by the Reduced Shakespeare Players, the Abridged series takes big, serious topics like Shakespeare, the Bible, Hollywood, and the Great Books, and packs each theme into a hilarious 90-minute production. Wittily written by Reed Martin and Austin Tichenor, and under the ingenious direction of Alex Krus, the three actors race through 89 classic tomes, poking fun at the titles, plots and characters and cleverly engaging the audience in their ‘scholarly’ antics. It’s a high-energy show that leaves you breathless.

GLCT is located at 160 W. Main St. in Old Town Lewisville. The entrance and parking are in the rear off of Elm Street. Tickets are $16 (adults) and $13 (65 +over/18-under). Call for reservations (recommended) at (972) 221-SHOW (7469). Additional information is available at www.GLCT.org.

Lewisville Lake Symphony Ending the Season with Violin Soloist Shannon Lee

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by WhosPlayin on 2013/4/4 18:50:02 (959 reads)

Open in new windowThe Lewisville Lake Symphony closes its 2012-2013 season with acclaimed violin soloist Shannon Lee giving two performances of Elgar’s Violin Concerto in B minor. In addition to the Elgar, the Symphony, under the baton of Maestro Adron Ming, will perform the much-loved Symphony No. 8 “Unfinished” by Franz Schubert.

Miss Lee made a stunning orchestral debut at the age of twelve with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra in the summer of 2005. Critical acclaim greeted Shannon in the fall of that year when she was featured as soloist during the DSO's Texas Tour. Since then she has been invited to perform with orchestras in the United States and Europe, consistently garnering highest praise from critics. Her coaches and mentors include world-famous violinists, Itzhak Perlman and Jaime Laredo. Now nineteen, she returned as soloist with the Dallas Symphony earlier this season for its performance of Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”. The Dallas Morning News called her performance “very impressive…tossing off skitters, runs and double stops with apparently effortless brilliance”.

The concerts take place at the MCL Grand in Old Town Lewisville on Friday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 21 at 2:30 p.m. There is plenty of parking around the Grand; most is on the City Hall side of the arts complex.

Tickets can be booked online at www.lewisvillesymphony.org and are $25 on Friday and $20 on Sunday. The Symphony provides a special $5 discount for seniors (60+). Student tickets are $10. Information is available at the symphony’s website or 972.874.9087.

Local Groups to Screen "The Invisible War" to Highlight Problem of Military Rapes

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2013/3/13 20:34:21 (909 reads)

Open in new window
Leaders from the Denton County Veterans Coalition, Denton County Friends of the Family, Grace After Fire and Denton County MHMR are hosting a screening of the award-winning documentary THE INVISIBLE WAR at the MCL Grand Theater in Lewisville at 6:30 PM on Tuesday, March 26, 2013.

A groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of our country’s most disturbing and little known secrets, THE INVISIBLE WAR reveals the epidemic of sexual assault within the U.S. military.

Today, a female soldier in Afghanistan is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. Over 24,000 troops were estimated to have been assaulted in 2011 alone (12% were male and 88% female). The number of military sexual assaults from FY 2007 through FY 2011 is believed to be over 110,000.

Tracing the powerfully emotional stories of several young veterans, the film reveals the systemic cover-up of the crimes they have suffered and follows their struggles to rebuild their lives and careers. Featuring hard-hitting interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress, THE INVISIBLE WAR urges us all—civilian and solider alike—to fight for a system that no longer forces our military to choose between speaking up and serving our country.

Lewisville Rotary Hosting Blood Drive this Weekend

Lewisville Area Calendar and Events
Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2013/3/13 18:10:00 (998 reads)

Open in new windowOpen in new windowLewisville Rotary is participating in a blood drive with Carter Blood Care to benefit Larry Smith on Saturday and Sunday, March 16 – 17, 2013 from 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm at the Vista Ridge Mall located at 2401 S. Stemmons in Lewisville. Look for the Carter Blood Mobile parked near Macy’s.

Here is a letter from Mr. Smith:

Open in new windowHello, my name is Larry Smith. I have lived and worked in Lewisville for over 42 years. In 2008, I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma cancer. Among other things, Multiple Myeloma attacks the bone marrow and disrupts the flow of red blood cells which give your body oxygen. After being in remission for approximately 3 years, I went through several procedures in 2011 and 2012 which slowed the progress of the disease but did not put me back into remission. The process over the last 8 months has been to have blood transfusions every 3 to 4 weeks. The reason for that is that my hemoglobin (carried by the red blood cells) becomes very low and creates difficulties breathing – all from the nature of the disease. Actually, I am having another 2 units of blood on March 14, 2013 because of the low level of my hemoglobin. As of March 11, 2013, my hemoglobin blood count was 6.9 and should be 14 for normal. So to offset the low hemoglobin, I must have blood transfusions. I would venture to say I have had 14 units of blood in the last 8 months. So to put it bluntly, if it were not for the people who donate blood, me and thousands of others just like me would have serious issues that we might not be able to overcome. You, the individual are the blood lifeline of millions of people all over the United States that could not survive without the availability of blood. The one thing I have learned in my years is that you NEVER know when you, a friend or a family member will need a blood transfusion. Do your part and help someone who will need it so they can hopefully have a normal life. God bless you.


Mr. Smith is a Rotarian active in the Lewisville Rotary Club for the past 15 years. Lewisville Rotary asks you to join them in this life saving effort for Larry and others like him.

On Valentine’s Day, we received—indirectly, of course—an interesting email invitation to the Lewisville Area Republican Club (LARC) monthly meeting on February 22:

Open in new window
The special event will feature guest speaker Cathie Adams, who chaired the Republican Party of Texas before being ousted eight months later. Adams has attracted national attention for her comments in the past, which include an assertion late last year that President Obama “has got to have a teleprompter because he fried his brain on drugs”.
