Dennis Strickland is excited about the line up for next week’s show in the Texan Theater lobby. Local icon Carol Taylor will share a historical narrative – What Did Jane Do With Her Husbands? – which promises to be fun as well as reflective of Greenville women and culture in another century. And Corey McCurry returns for a farewell performance. He has accepted a music opportunity elsewhere and will be moving, but will first grace us with his keyboard mastery. We are tentatively planning to also feature a local artist. We will announce more as we are able to confirm, but make plans now to be with us. Join us for Hump Day Happy Hour in The Lobby of The Texan every Wednesday afternoon.
Last Wednesday Pamela Edwards showcased the “High Cotton” mural, which will be painted on the wall of a building in downtown Greenville. The abstract art, which she presented in this display at our Hump Day Happy Hour, will be prominent at the busy intersections of Washington and Stonewall. As we sat in the ambience of the Lobby at the Texan Theatre, reminiscing of the usage of that term by those who picked cotton, we imagined their appreciation for tall cotton which did not require you to bend. Work that is less stringent, yet productive, is living in high cotton. People have often complained about the pricing for various venues at the restored and remastered Texan Theater. Your cncerns have been heard. The Wednesday get together is free for the concert in the lobby. Coffee and tea is available from the Texan Theater Coffee Shop next door.
