"Always a Bridesmaid"
a Jones, Hope, Wooten Comedy
Live theater show by
Hasty Retreat Productions
In this hilarious comedic romp, four friends have sworn to keep the promise they made on the night of their Senior Prom: to be in each other's weddings…no matter what. More than thirty years later, these Southern friends-for-life are still making "the long walk" for each other, determined to honor that vow. Libby Ruth, Deedra, Monette and Charlie are committed to the notion that careers, waistlines and even marriages may disappear, but real friendships last a lifetime.

Lights of Tejas is our way of sharing the story of Christ with our local community and the guests we serve by transforming Tejas into a Christmas wonderland. Over one million Christmas lights help us tell the story of Christ in a family friendly environment. There are zip lines, climbing walls, inflatables, hayrides, a light maze, food, black light gaga ball, a Christmas tree forest, choirs, midway games and face painting. The main attraction of the evening is our lightshow on the lake. With the help of 250,000 lights we present the Gospel going through creation, the fall of man, the birth of Christ and redemption through Christ’s resurrection from the cross.
