Cultural Art Happenings October 2013 
October is National Arts & Humanities Month - the largest annual celebration for the arts and humanities in the nation!
Join me in celebrating the importance of culture by partaking in the many arts events going on in Abilene this month. You can tour museums downtown for free during ArtWalk, which will be taken over this month by the undead for ZombieCrawl! Other spooky happenings include the Buffalo Gap Historic Village ghost tours, the Abilene Preservation League transforming the Swenson House into a haunted mansion and Boo at the Zoo for little trick-or-treaters.
Don't miss the Oct. 17 deadline to order 2013-14 season tickets for Broadway in Abilene!
Another way to celebrate the importance of the arts is to join me at the HeARTS for the ARTS annual luncheon on Oct. 21. We will celebrate our local arts groups and support grants for their programs. It's another way to say the arts matter in our community!
 

Artfully Yours,

Adam Hester
Q&A with Adam Hester: Director, professor, actor Ad
Adam Hester is co-director of the Abilene Christian University homecoming musical "Les MisÚrables" along with Dawne Meeks. The show tells the story of French ex-convict Jean Valjean, as well as the saga of one of his factory workers, Fantine, and her child. The show is Oct. 18-20 at the Abilene Civic Center. Adam is chairman of ACU's Department of Theatre and a professor of directing and acting. 
Q. Why did ACU choose "Les MisÚrables" this year? 
A. One of its compelling aspects is Les MisÚrables' connection to faith that permeates the story. We have loved discussing the contrast of light and dark, the profound effect the Bishop's forgiveness has on Valjean, and, of course, the Isaiah passage at the end of the play. The immortal lyrics, "to love another person is to the see the face of God" will forever move me as I'm sure it does so many who have seen the play. ... The deep, spiritual messages in Les MisÚrables  make this THE musical I've been waiting to do for more than 20 years.    
Q. What is your favorite part of the show? 
A. I have a Pavlovian response - crying whenever I see the Bishop scene where Valjean encounters grace for the first time, forever changing his life. 
Q. What can the audience expect from the ACU version? 
A. I believe this production will truly have a profound effect on the audience whether they have seen the show before or not. We have a gifted cast who have both glorious voices and exceptional acting training. I can't wait to show them off. The sets and costumes will wow audiences. 

There are challenges for any company doing Les MisÚrables. For one, each of the actors' lines are sung rather than spoken. Like the upcoming revival headed to Broadway in March 2014, this one will not have the revolving turntable you may have seen in London or on Broadway.  

Q. When did you know you loved theater? 
A. I fell in love with theater in high school, but found it to be my life's passion during college. I remember coming to that difficult decision deciding between two loves: theater and journalism. It became clear that both were going to be incredibly demanding and that choice shaped the rest of my career. I've loved the exploring what it means to be human through theater, the built-in sense of community with each play and the sense of play that accompanies each production.
Q. What was your favorite role? 
A. I have such a deep affection for Shakespeare, I think I would have to choose either Roderigo in Othello or Dromio in A Comedy of Errors. However, Michael in The Fourposter and Velasco in Barefoot in the Park were a lot of fun to play opposite my wife, Donna.
Q. What was your favorite show to direct? 
A. The one I'm doing at the moment is usually my favorite! I especially enjoyed doing Secret Garden, Evita and Godspell, to name a few. ... I've been blessed to direct and get to know some amazing people and productions. Working with my daughter, Jenavene, was a huge thrill. 

 

Comanche Moon Social 2012
Famous chief returns to old hunting grounds
Native American chief Quanah Parker will be back in his old hunting and raiding grounds Saturday, Oct. 5 as part of the annual Comanche Moon Social to benefit the Buffalo Gap Historic Village.   
TV and big screen star Michael Horse portrays the chief in the debut of "The Road Man," a one-person show written by Texas playwright Andy Wilkinson. 
In the show, Quanah sits for a photographer and reminiscences about his youth on the Plains, his mother Cynthia Ann Parker, and his transition to rancher, businessman and symbol of the American frontier. 
Comanche Moon Social attendees will enjoy a special menu of buffalo, game, special recipe "punch" and authentic frontier cuisine prepared by world-famous chef Tom Perini. "Arley Gipson and Friends" will provide the musical entertainment. Tickets to the event are $125. Raffle tickets at $100 each are available for three prizes: a Terry Gilbreth bronze of Quanah; Colt .45 rifle; and hand-knotted 4x6 Pendleton wool rug with buffalo design. For event or raffle tickets, call 325-572-3974

Storybook Ball Storybook Ball attracts characters, funds for NCCIL 
Save the date for the fourth annual Storybook Ball benefiting the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature on
Saturday, Oct. 26! This year, we will honor one of our own - Becky McDonald. Becky was instrumental in the creation and expansion of the NCCIL and has been a driving influence for the museum since its beginnings. Her passion for children and art at the NCCIL is second to none.

This year's event will feature an exclusive exhibition, "A Celebration of Children and Art." The exhibit will feature art from Kevin Henkes' "Penny and her Doll," the NCCIL's permanent art collection and the featured art in our 2013 art auction. The proceeds from this auction will provide the initial funds to establish the Becky McDonald School Tours Endowment Fund to perpetuate the NCCIL's most important program - tours for students. The auction will showcase an incredible array of original works from 16 of the NCCIL's award winning past exhibitors, such as artists Ashley Bryan, Mary Azarian, David Diaz, Ed Emberley, David Macaulay, Betsy and Ted Lewin, Chris Raschka, Matthew Reinhart, Robert Sabuda, Peter Sis, David Small, Dan Yaccarino and Ed Young. The NCCIL is now a recognized charity on Mission Fish and will be hosting this auction on eBay (NCCIL store page) starting Oct. 16, where 100 percent of the sales will benefit the NCCIL. For information on the auction pieces or to be an absentee bidder, call 325-673-4586.

The Storybook Ball is the only major fundraiser for the NCCIL. A portion of the proceeds from the event help the NCCIL to keep admission and programming free to the public. Tables and individuals tickets can be purchased in the NCCIL bookstore or online at www.nccil.org
