Each year since 1984 Kilgore has hosted this proffessional theater production. Last years production included: Much Ado About Nothing, Amadeus, Man of La Mancha, Othello and The Blue Horse. I only got to attend Man of La Mancha and Amadeus and they were great. It is really nice to attend such great plays here in East Texas in the comfort of an air conditioned building. It is also nice because you don't need to get a hotel, but if anyone is coming from out of town there are quite a few hotels including the Holiday Inn Express on Hwy 259.
We don't get much credit as a town, but we do have something to offer. I hope many will find some time to come through E Texas. I would love to at least feed you a meal during your visit.
