Welcome to a brand new year at the Old School Theater. We had a great 2017 putting on eight shows from June to December. Chances are good we'll triple that this year. We're grateful for the help of our sponsors (particularly our constant supporter Turnage Drug Store), the dediicated fans who came to show after show, and the fabulous crew of musicians who made the showcases possible. We had a few glitches (the AC on the first show and a couple of shows that ran a little long) but all-in-all things have gone smoothly. And we're fairly proud of the response from the artists (they love our green room, the theater stage and our audiences) and proud of the level of performance we were able to present. If you missed shows like Becky Warren or The Kerrville Winners...what can I say, you just plain screwed up.
We are learning every show and continually working making improvements (check out the nice new bathroom floors for example). There's a long way to go and 2017 promises to be a rich and full year. The first five shows will be announced shortly and we're working on many more. We hope to see Paul Thorn return this year and we have a number of other larger shows we're pursuing as well. We're looking at bringing people like Bill Kirchen, Slaid Cleaves, Shannon Boshears, Kevin Gordon and many others. Don't be afraid to tell us what you want to see.
