Editor’s note: I’ve been going to STR8 Training for six weeks to better myself and record what it’s like to join a personal training regimen. This is what I’ve learned and how I’m feeling six weeks later.

Price Center showing ‘Les Miserables’

Going into its second weekend today and tomorrow, with one more weekend to go on April 24 and 25, the musical version of “Les Misérables” will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Price Center, 222 W. San Antonio St.
The show is a production of the Spot Light Theatre, directed by Angie Lassetter, as a fundraiser for the Price Center’s cultural programs.
First performed in 1985, the play is based on  Victor Hugo’s novel dealing with the passions and resilience of the human spirit in oppressive 19th century France, becoming one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history.

‘Greater Tuna’ spoofs small town Texas

When the Wimberley Players unleash the wickedly wacky and wry “Greater Tuna,” by Jaston Williams, Joe Sears, and Ed Howard, audiences are assured a first class ticket to “the third smallest town in Texas.” This brilliant send-up of small town life was originally a party skit that debuted as a play in Austin, Texas in the fall of 1981, and off-Broadway in 1982. By 1985 it was the most produced play in the U.S. Greater Tuna is onstage at the Wimberley Playhouse weekends, April 24 – May 17.
