Lone Star Ballet

Lone Star Ballet We are very proud of Lone Star Ballet in Amarillo. Each year Lone Star and the ASO team up to bring the Nutcracker to Amarillo. It is a beautiful ballet that for many years had great costumes, sets, etc but recently, they have upgraded with all new sets, costumes, and even a little variation on the story.

I have played the English horn part to the Nutcracker for 25 years. Recently, I took a couple seasons off to play for the Amarillo Little Theatre's "A Christmas Carol" but I plan to get back into the ballet pit again for the 2008 season. It is a tradition of mine to bring homemade fudge to the orchestra pit for the dress rehearsals every year. It's funny to find out that when I was gone for the two seasons, the thing people noticed the most was that my fudge was not available. Ha!
