Cultural Art Happenings November 2013 
This is the time of year when Abilene dances into the holidays with the help of many arts organizations and a talented child cast of toy soldiers, snowflakes and other characters from "The Nutcracker." Abilene Ballet Theatre's Lisa Gore Etter gives us the highlights in our Q&A section.
This month also kicks off the beginning of the 2013-14 Broadway in Abilene season with "Ballroom with a Twist." See many of your favorite professional dancers from hit TV shows in this entertaining show at the Abilene Civic Center.
And of course this month is a time to be thankful. We, at the Abilene Cultural Affairs Council, are thankful for our nation's veterans, who will be honored during the Nov. 14 ArtWalk themed "Here's to the Heroes." And we are thankful for the many talented artists, art organizations and art supporters who live in and visit the Abilene area and make this such a culturally rich place to live!
 

Artfully Yours,

Lynn Barnett

null Q&A with Lisa Gore Etter: Dancer, teacher, choreographer
Lisa Gore Etter is artistic director of Abilene Ballet Theatre along with her mother, Nancy Gore. ABT performs "The Nutcracker" at Paramount Theatre at 8 p.m. Nov. 22; 2:30 and 8 p.m. Nov. 23; and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 24. This is ABT's 26th year to put on "The Nutcracker," which first premiered in 1892 and tells the story of a little girl who falls asleep and dreams herself into a world where the toys come to life.   
Q. Why is The Nutcracker so popular after all these years? 
A. It's a classic. It's kind of  like watching "Miracle on 34th Street" or "It's a Wonderful Life" at Christmas time. There are people who won't usually go to the ballet, but over the holidays, they'll go see "Nutcracker." It is tradition, and it just gets you in the holiday spirit. Of course, the longevity and staying power may have something to do with Tchaikovsky's brilliant score. When you listen to it, you can't help but imagine little toy soldiers, snowflakes, Chinese dancers, dew drop and sugar plum fairies and the like.   
Q. What is your favorite part of the show? 
A. I can truthfully say that I love the entire show, but my most favorite is Act II Land of  the Sweets. I guess I'm a kid at heart. It's so colorful and fun. An entire palace and land made of lollipops, gumdrops, and chocolate? Yes, please! Tell me who doesn't need more of that in their lives? 
Q. What can the audience expect from the ABT version?
A. We have a few distinct interpretations that really make it our own. We have a vivid and festive party scene full of action. Typically, the party scenes are more subdued, which I find a little odd. It's a party after all, right? Our battle scene is almost cartoon like at times, and I really love this aspect of it. It makes it more fun and less scary for children. Our Arabian pas de deux is danced as "The Peacock" with her "Prince." She is carried down the Paramount aisle to the stage by her entourage in a golden, bejeweled cage that lights up. You'll also see "Tiny Angels" that fly! They take their part so seriously.  
Q. When did you know you loved ballet? 
A. I started dancing with Mrs. Margie Bray in Albany, Texas, when I was 3. She was a wonderful lady and dance teacher! I loved it from the start. I still have my very first recital costume - a little pink, blue, and white tutu with white iridescent sequin trim. Over the years, I watched my mother dance, teach, open her own studio, then begin a ballet company, join Regional Dance America, and host RDA festivals in our city. I've taken part in her efforts through dancing, teaching, choreographing, and co directing. I'm not sure there was a real defining "I love to dance" moment, but it's always been a big part of my life and I've always loved it. I really can't imagine a life without it. 
Q. What was your favorite role and why? 
A. I really loved performing Peacock. It's so mysterious and dramatic.  
Q. What was your favorite show to choreograph and why? 
A. Several years ago, I choreographed "Grease" at Wylie High School for Bob Strauss. I had a blast!

null "Ballroom with a Twist" brings TV stars to civic center
The 2013-14 Broadway in Abilene season kicks off with "Ballroom with a Twist" at 7:30 p.m.Tuesday, Nov. 12 at the Abilene Civic Center. This show is a critically acclaimed, international dance production choreographed by Louis van Amstel from the ABC TV show  
"Dancing With the Stars." This ground-breaking show stars celebrity pros from "Dancing With The Stars" and features finalists from TV's "So You Think You Can Dance" and "
American Idol" finalists. These pros push the boundaries of ballroom dance, infusing it with the energy and intensity of
the latest contemporary and "hip-hop" styles. "Ballroom with a Twist" is, according to 
LA Stage Times, "an evening of entertainment for the entire family." With stunning costumes and magnificent music, from swing to samba, from classical to pop, the LA Weekly says the show is a "well-orchestrated spectacle." Tickets cost $20-$45. Go to celebrityattractions.com or call 800-869-1451.
Celebration Singers salute veterans with patriotic concert

New NCCIL exhibit celebrates graphic novels for kids  

Artwork from five of the most popular artists of graphic novels for children will go on display Thursday, Nov. 14 in downtown Abilene.

The National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature is pleased to showcase the art behind graphic novels in the exhibition, "BAM!! It's A Picture Book." Graphic novels are a popular format among young readers and are known for their comic book style. They are best described as "sequential art," where a series of illustrations tell the story, but unlike newspaper comics, they are the length of a novel and include narrative development. The exhibition includes art from Jarrett J. Krosoczka ("Lunch Lady" series), Mark Crilley ("Brody's Ghost" anime), Matthew Holm ("Babymouse" and "Squish" series with co-creator and sister Jennifer), Lincoln Peirce ("Big Nate" series) and Raina Telgemeier ("Smile"). 

The NCCIL will host one of the featured artists almost every month during the exhibition, which runs through February. Free events this month include:

Thursday, Nov. 21: Matthew Holm will give a gallery talk presentation at 6 p.m. at the NCCIL.

Saturday, Nov. 23: Children's event with artist Matthew Holm at 10 a.m. at the NCCIL.

World War II battle re-enactment to honor veterans set
This month's ArtWalk on Thursday, Nov. 14 will merge art and military history in honor of our veterans in "Here's to the Heroes."
The evening kicks off with Hardin-Simmons University's brass ensemble performing from 5 to 6 p.m. in Minter Park followed by Abilene Christian University's Swing Cats dancing "Swingjungen" in opposition to Adolf Hitler. At 6:15 p.m., members of the 12th Armored Division Memorial Museum will perform a full-scale battle re-enactment complete with shots fired (blanks).
The line of people parading down the street will end at Paramount Theatre, where the Community Foundation of Abilene will present the world premier of "4-4-43: Lt. Col. William Edwin Dyess and the Greatest Story of the War in the Pacific." This documentary highlights the extraordinary life of local legend Dyess, the Bataan Death March, a daring prison escape and its aftermath. The movie was shot in high definition in the United States and the Philippines and includes vintage film footage and interviews with WWII veterans. The project was produced in conjunction with the World War II Foundation and was underwritten by the Dian Graves Owen Foundation. Admission is free.
ArtWalk is a free monthly event put on by The Center for Contemporary Arts that involves downtown galleries, shops and restaurants.
McMurry student written play explores Alzheimer's exp
McMurry University's award winning student playwright David Remschel brings his newest play to the stage this month - "No Room for a Picture on the Blank Wall."
The play is about a photographer who discovers he has Alzheimer's disease after a picture on his wall goes missing. The only thing is it's not missing - he just can't see it anymore. As the show progresses, so does his disease. Remschel, a senior theatre major, was inspired to write the play after his Servant Leadership class went to a local Alzheimer's care center. He coupled this experience with his desire to write a play that involves deconstructing the set. The play is directed by professor Charlie Hukill
.
Remschel was one of two winners at the college level in the annual Texas Educational Theatre Association's (TETA) Playfest playwriting competition last year. After graduation, he plans to teach theatre and continue to write plays and screenplays. 
"No Room for a Picture on the Blank Wall" shows at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14-16 and Nov. 21-23. Tickets are $10 general admission and $5 for students, faculty and staff. Go to www.mcm.edu/theatre

Love, surprises abound in HSU's "Sense and Sensibility" 
Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility," her first novel, is the warm and endearing tale of the sisters Dashwood ... two sisters who couldn't be more different. Set in 1790s England, the two find that the path to true love is rife with unexpected twists and startling secrets.

The Hardin-Simmons University Theatre Department's take on the timeless tale was adapted for the stage by Jon Jory and is directed by professor Ronald Dean Nolen. The show is at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 14-16 and 21-23 and at 2 p.m. Nov. 25 in Van Ellis Theatre. 

"I'm a big fan of old-fashioned love stories...especially those of the happily-ever-after variety," Nolen said. "Jon Jory's adaptation is thoughtful and true to Austen's novel...full of flirtation and fully-defined characters. I've been looking forward to working on this production with our student actors and designers...a great theatrical experience for the audience as well." 

Tickets are $8 general admission; $5 for military/students/seniors and free for HSU employees and students. Call the box office at 325-670-1405 or go online to hsutx.thundertix.com.
