October is such a wonderful time in Tyler and East Texas! The weather is perfect and there are many activities. People always ask us about the Texas Rose Festival. Tyler is famous for the festival wish has been going on since the early 1900's. My Aunt Catherine was the Rose Queen 62 years ago. Just my small claim to fame!! Lets get started with the activities for you to enjoy when you are staying with us at the Rosevine Inn.
Rosemary's Baby (1968) ** The Exorcist (1973)** Alien (1979) ** The Thing (1982)** and , of course, Halloween (1978)
These are all showing on Thursday's at 7 PM.
You can call it prescient or predetermined, but when Terry Lickona, undisputed tastemaker and producer of Austin City Limits, plucked a then relatively unknown guitar talent to tape a segment of the legendary show, one had the sense that this was just the beginning.
Since that jaw dropping performance, Monte Montgomery has embarked on an almost fantasy like rock and roll roller coaster ride filled with dizzying accomplishments and mind blowing accolades. Named one of the “Top 50 All-Time Greatest Guitar Players” by Guitar Player Magazine, he’s been called everything from “guitar-god” to the “answer to the Fermi Paradox”.
Still, despite the six-string notoriety, Monte is not content to rest on his musical laurels. “I’ve resisted temptation to be just that guitar gunslinger from Austin, Texas,” says Monte. “I strive to have more depth, to be more layered as an artist, songwriter and singer.”
Long a big draw on the live music scene, Monte’s non-stop touring schedule has included ParkPop (one of the largest music festivals in Europe). A Monte Montgomery show is likened to a musical religious experience. Come experience it yourself at Liberty Hall.
THEN ON - 10-19 jsut for the kids
It’s Splat's first day of school and he's worried. What if he doesn't make any new friends? Just in case, Splat decides to bring along his pet mouse, Seymour, and hides him in his lunchbox. The teacher, Mrs. Wimpydimple, introduces Splat to the class and he soon starts learning all his important cat lessons. But when Seymour escapes and the cats do what cats do (they chase mice!), Splat's worried again. Maybe now he'll lose all his friends, old and new! Just in time, wise Mrs. Wimpydimple takes charge and teaches everyone an important new lesson. Maybe Cat School is going to be okay after all!
This World Premiere musical from The Magik Theatre is sure to delight students, teachers, the young,
and the young at heart.
The Fauvist's Child
The play opens with The Child painting at an easel. She is a successful artist that has discovered too late that her Father was an amateur fauvist painter in his youth. This discovery creates frustration and alienation which prompts The Child to consider her relationships with her overbearing Mother and her vacant Father. We are taken through the decline and death of the Father and witness the Child struggle with what is left behind when loved ones die but peace must still be restored. The show alternates between monologues given directly to the audience and flash-back scenes including all three actors. The startling and unrealistic colors of the fauvist style set a backdrop for the play.
