TO Xmas

Textual Overture will unveil its first ever “Holiday Themed” show on Friday an Saturday at 7:00 on the campus of Texas A&M University – Kingsville.  There will be several plays, Christmas songs, holiday poets, and the like performed. Open-mic will be scheduled throughout both nights!

Friday @ 7:00 – Memorial Student Union Building (TAMUK Campus)

Saturday @ 7:00 – Blue Room, Sam Fore Hall (TAMUK Campus)

Holiday-themed Textual Overture coming soon


Our next production has already begun rehearsals! Our next project is a holiday-themed Textual Overture. What was once a tradition for Premature Punchline, the sleigh reigns have been handed over to the Textual Overture crew.

Since our Christmas shows have been heavily adult-focused, this year’s project will be for families and the kiddos! More information coming soon.

So far, the set list includes plays such as:

“It Never Snows in Texas” written and directed by Beth Marie Cantu

“The Little Match Girl” by Hans Christan Anderson, dir. Michael Verderber

“Thank You, Santa” by Anne Nunley, dir. Beth Marie Cantu

And as always, plenty of Christmas music, poetry, and an open-mic portion! Tentative date is December 19 and 20.
