Opening Night of “Sugar” at the Texas Theatre Kicks Off Dogwood Trails Celebration
PALESTINE- The big red curtain at the Texas Theatre will soon open for “Sugar,” the musical comedy based on the screenplay “Some Like It Hot.” The Palestine Community Theatre Group invites you to come laugh until you cry in one of the oldest and most beautiful theatres in East Texas. March 23, at 6:30 p.m. the Opening Night Gala wine and cheese reception will kick off the Dogwood Trails Celebration with a bang!
“Sugar” is sponsored by Bodi Services, LLC. Bon Appetite will be catering the Opening Night Gala and Sweet Dreams Winery will provide complimentary, award winning, East Texas made wines.
“Some Like It Hot” is an American comedy film, made in 1958 and released in 1959, featuring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. “Sugar” chronicles the zany lives of two musicians during the prohibition era who witness a gang slaying. The story line is set in the 1920s, and centered around two out-of-work musicians Joe and Jerry, who witness a Valentine’s Day mob shooting in Chicago. In order to escape the gangsters, Joe and Jerry become Josephine and Daphne and join an all female band headed to Miami! The scene is set with both guys who are masquerading as women, getting involved in romantic entanglements that will have audiences in stitches.
Make plans to see a performance “Sugar” at the Texas March 23, 24, 25, 30, 31 and April 1, Friday and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are available online now through Outhouse Tickets (http://www.outhousetickets.com/Artist/Sugar/) and in Palestine at Education Unlimited and the Palestine Chamber of Commerce.

ETX- Vintage campers are making a comeback. It is not unusual to see a 30 or 40 year old tin can in tow behind a modern day vehicle headed to a state park in Texas. This 1967 Avion cabover was spotted at Crip’s Camp in Uncertain, Texas last March. The camper is owned by Marshall business man Dennis Rhoades. Rhoades was on a spring vacation with his family enjoying Caddo Lake.
