Casa Mañana  
Casa Mañana - A Year With Frog And Toad
Performance: September 30 - October 16, 2016
A Broadway hit, A Year With Frog And Toad is perfect for the whole family! Based on the well-loved books, this whimsical musical follows two great friends – the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad – through the year. Waking from hibernation in the spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, eat cookies, swim in funny bathing suits, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. Part vaudeville, part make-believe and all charm, A Year with Frog And Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.

Jubilee Theatre Presents  
Jubilee Theatre - Working : A Musical
Performance: Sept. 30 - Oct. 30, 2016
From the book by Studs Terkel
The characters of WORKING are everybody you know! The situations are everyday situations. But this musical is anything but ordinary. A different look at the seemingly humdrum lives of working people reveals a myriad variety of hopes, aspirations and dreams. Of course, to some, life is a Monday to Friday drudge, but to others there is great pride in their daily routine. A powerful contemporary score with songs by Stephen Schwartz and James Taylor among others, backed by a vital and dramatic book makes this musical a winner for all ages.

Identity  
Amon Carter Museum - Identity
Exhibition: April 30, 2016 - October 9, 2016
Identity explores how identity in American culture is often as much about how people present themselves to the world as it is externally determined. Exploring community, celebrity, and individual identity through portraiture from the Amon Carter's permanent collection, the exhibition highlights the exciting new acquisitions of Sedrick Huckaby's The 99% and Glenn Ligon's print series Runaways. Whereas Huckaby engaged with and depicted 101 members of his neighborhood to uncover how their individual personalities were reflective of a larger community identity, Ligon explored the notion that individual identity is often culturally determined.
