Arts

“Evita” performed by Theatre Frisco – Through June 18th, Argentina’s controversial First Lady is the subject of this dynamic musical masterpiece. As an illegitimate fifteen year old, Eva escaped her dirt-poor existence for the bright lights of Buenos Aires. Driven by ambition and blessed with charisma, she was a starlet at twenty-two, the president’s mistress at twenty-four, First Lady at twenty-seven, and dead at thirty-three. Eva Peron ‘saint to the working-class, reviled by the aristocracy and mistrusted by the military’ was destined to leave a fascinating political legacy unique in the 20th century. Told through a compelling score that fuses haunting chorales with exuberant Latin, pop and jazz influences, EVITA creates an arresting theatrical portrait as complex as the woman herself.

“MUSIC IN THE SQUARE 2017”Every Friday night in June from 7:30pm to 9:30pm, this FREE summer event is held on Simpson Plaza featuring an amazing line-up of talented musicians. Bring friends and family, grab a picnic, some blankets or chairs and enjoy listening to a variety of musicians as the sun sets!
Summer line up:  June 16th – Justin Mason –  Texas-native and no stranger to country music, he grew up listening to all of the greats, and he brings that sound to his music today. Singing original songs, as well as some of the country classics, Justin is a true entertainer.  He loves performing and has all of his audiences dancing and singing along!
