This time of year we are normally hustling to finalize contracts, line up housing for actors, and make final arrangements for the beginning of our season. But as you all know, the COVID 19 outbreak has put a hold on our production for 2020. Believe me, this is crushing news, but we are committed to doing what is best to protect the health and safety of our audience, staff, crew, and cast.
The TEXAS spirit is not one to be stifled however, and we are working hard to bring you some fun experiences that you can take in while being responsible citizens, socially distanced from one another. We are amazed to see what people are capable of producing in this time of crisis, and we are working hard to share the talents of our alumni and supporters with you. We hope that you, like many others, have had the chance to slow down and enjoy the extra time that this lockdown is affording. Maybe you have taken time to finish that novel, or have decided to finally start that garden you've always talked about. Maybe now is the time to finally dust off that old hot-rod in the garage and get it running again. Or maybe, you are taking the time to get creative. Whatever you find yourself doing in this time, embrace it and enjoy it. There is a silver lining in all of this.
We wanted to get in on that action and share with you a painting lesson from one of our long time supporters, Marsha Clements. Marsha owns an art gallery here in Canyon, TX called 4th Avenue Fine Art, where she holds classes twice a week for aspiring artists. Since the lockdown started she has not been able to hold her classes and so instead she has developed a fun activity for you to try out. You don't need an art degree to take this one on and we hope it will remind you of the last time you came to see TEXAS Outdoor Musical.
Thank you Marsha for being a supporter of TEXAS Outdoor Musical and a member of the Texas Panhandle Heritage Foundation. Because of supporters like you, we are able to continue our mission and bring quality entertainment to the Palo Duro Canyon and the Texas High Plains region. For full instructions, click here.
