Shakespeare Inhabits Athens East Texas Arboretum

My faith in the Lord shapes my entire being as a daughter, wife and mother of three. Please pardon my typos and errors...I'll fix them after coffee. Lots of it!




     Pairing the complexity of Shakespeare with simplicity of nature has long been captured as a timeless art; a beauty to be enjoyed by many. For decades upon decades, parks in Dallas and other renown cities have long formed societies and casts who perform the work of William Shakespeare in outdoor settings.

     Thanks to the Henderson County Performing Arts Center and the Athens East Texas Arboretum and Botanical Society, we now have our own opportunity to experience Shakespeare in the Garden in our own cascade of lush garden, just over 10 minutes from both Malakoff and Eustace.

     From June 21th through 30th, HCPAC will present A Midsummer Night's Dream on the Thursday through Saturday evenings. Beginning at 7:30 PM. beneath the Arboretum's covered gazebo, talent from all over Henderson County will come together to form the incredible cast of near 20 community members that grow the events surrounding the wedding night of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons, to a point.

     Executive Director at HCPAC, David Hill, brings the enchantment of this masterpiece to Athens, TX , rather than Greece, and to the time period of the late 1930's. Lovers quarrel and fairies flutter amongst the beautiful, living backdrop. Shakespeare adds his "play within the play" device to Midsummer, bringing comedy and laughter to all.

     The cost for adults is $17 and $12 for students.. To purchase tickets call the theater at 903-675-3908 or go to www.hcpac.org. Entry can also be done by paying at the gate on the night of the show. The arboretum is located at 1601 Patterson Road in Athens.

     HCPAC is a non profit theatre established over 51 years and holds true to their mission statement "We entertain. We educate. We change lives." Take the family out for a night of classic theatre in the Gardens. You won't want to miss!

Cedar Creek Lake Fishing Report from TPWD (Dec. 4)

FAIR. Water lightly stained; 60–62 degrees, 2.30’ low. Largemouth bass continue to be fair on Carolina rigged creature baits, plastic worms, and buzz baits along the Caney Creek flats on the southeast end of the lake. Hybrid stripers are good with Rat–L–Traps matching the baitfish throughout the lake and moving with schools. Crappie are good on pink and white jigs around large docks and structures. Catfish are good on cut shad, dough bait, and stinkbait over corks. Trotlines are good with live bait, especially on the southeastern fingers. High winds have made some days difficult.
