    • Tue., Feb. 27–Sat., Mar. 3, 7:30 p.m., W.M. Turner Auditorium

    Presented by the School of Theatre (The Mainstage Series)

    The play opens with Gottlieb Biedermann, a successful businessman and pillar of his community, muttering about the stupidity of his fellow townspeople, who have allowed strangers to move into their attics and then to set fire to their houses. Enter Sepp Schmitz, an out-of-work professional wrestler who needs a place to spend the night. Before long, Schmitz and his friend Eisenring have moved in, and they seem to be stocking up on sawdust and barrels of gasoline. There’s a little satire mixed into this blend of epic theatre and absurdist comedy. Tickets: $15 adults, $10 seniors and $7.50 students/youth.

    Single tickets: $15 for adult, $10 for senior, $7.50 for student. Purchase tickets online or by phone: 888.240.ARTS (936.468.6407).

    Heralded by CMT Edge as "one of the most promising bands on the bluegrass scene," the music of the Nashville-based group The Barefoot Movement is as down to earth as a visit with old friends, so sit back, relax, kick your shoes off and stay a while. When this fresh, youthful quartet of superb musicians romps through pop-infused “newgrass” medleys and country-flavored ballads, you can expect an evening of music with something for everyone.
