TAMUCC Summer Children's Show! "Mother Hicks"
The Department of Theatre and Dance will present the award winning children’s show MOTHER HICKS by Susan Zeder in the Warren Theater. This is an evocative story, richly realized through all of the resources of theatre including poetry, character and story. The setting includes various locations in and around Ware, Illinois, in the late spring of 1935 during the Great Depression. This play is about three outsiders—a foundling girl known only as Girl; a deaf boy, eloquent in the language of his silence; and an eccentric recluse, Mother Hicks. The tale, told with poetry and sign language, chronicles the journeys of these three to find themselves, and each other, in a troubled time. Directed by Kelly Russell, this family friendly play will delight and educate. Don’t miss it! Show times are July 30th at 10:00a.m. & at 7:00pm. July 31st at 7:00p.m and Aug. 1st at 2:00pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6.50 for children, $5 for TAMU-CC students.

Rockport - Fulton Seafair
Forty years ago, the idea for Seafair was the brainchild of a Rockport man, Bill Christian. He believed the area needed a celebration in the fall to fill the lull between the summer visitors and the arrival of winter tourists. Though the event has grown since its creation, it remains very much the same as Christian envisioned it: a parade, arts and crafts, bands, water entertainment and a gumbo cook-off were part of the very first Seafair. Today they all remain major attractions. Christian formed a Board of Directors, established a 501 c 4 non-profit organization. In April of 2000, Pam Farley, President of Seafair at the time came to a Rockport-Fulton Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors meeting and requested that the Chamber of Commerce take it over. After much discussion, the Chamber Board voted to take on the event. That year, during Seafair the community experienced the coldest of cold fronts for that time period and four solid days of rain. It was shortly after that rain out event that Bill Christian came into the office of the Chamber with a lot of encouraging words and a box full of Seafair history. The Chamber is committed to the continuing the Seafair legacy and the wonderful ideas of Bill Christian.
