Arts At the Pavilion: The Importance of Being Ernest @ Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU
Aug 13 @ 7:30 pm – 10:30 pm

Join Falls Town Players and the Wichita Falls Museum of Art at MSU Texas for “The Importance of Being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde on August 13th and 14th and 7:30pm

Come create the “set” our actors perform on with chalk starting a 6:00pm! Museum will be open from 5-7pm to showcase the inspiration pieces for our production.

Inspired by the Musuem’s current exhibitions, with elements of narrative, nature, and costume, this production explores storytelling and wordplay as two central couples maintain fictitious personalities to escape social obligations.

Seating is limited. To reserve a place email fallstownplayers@gmail.com with the number of seats and your preferred performance date. To check in on the night of the performance, please present your email confirmation.

Bring a cushion for Pavilion seating–we will have spaces for you to alternately bring your own chair (with an obstructed view).
Bring your own refreshments (no trash cans available–please take out all you bring in).
Restrooms available across the lake bridge on Sikes Lake Trail.
Masks required for the entire performance.

Directed by Morgan Dayley, MSU Assistant Professor of Musical Theater and Acting–we can’t wait to host you!

Coffee and Conversations (Virtual) @ Online
Aug 20 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am

Coffee & Conversation is back!

To relaunch Coffee & Conversation, we decided to tackle our most difficult topics to date. During the month of August and into September, we will provide three opportunities to have conversations about race, unconscious bias and inclusion.

 

These sessions will be offered virtually and will be facilitated by Margie Reese, Executive Director for the Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts & Culture. The Center for Nonprofit Management & Leadership will be the host for these sessions. All members of the nonprofit sector are welcome: staff, leadership, board members, volunteers or other stakeholders.

 

Each session will be approximately 1 hour in length, but will require some “pre-work” and “homework” to be the most effective. There is no charge to participate, but we do ask that you register in advance. Once you register, you will receive a link to the meeting, as well as a link to additional materials to review in advance.

 

The dates and times are:

 

·      August 6, 8:30 am – 9:30 am—–> To register click HERE

 

·      August 20, 8:30 am – 9:30 am—–> To register click HERE
