The Other Mozart - Critically Acclaimed Solo Theatrical Perfoman
Select-a-Seat, Lubbock – "Strikingly beautiful." - New York Times "A gem of a show." - The Stage (London) There was another Mozart - a forgotten genius: Nannerl, the sister of Amadeus. THE OTHER MOZART is the true and untold story of a prodigy, keyboard virtuoso and composer, who performed throughout Europe with her brother to equal acclaim, but her work and her story faded away, lost to history. With the opulent beauty of the 18 foot dress that makes up the set, the sweet smell of perfume, and the clouds of dusting powder rising from the stage, the performance creates a multi-sensual experience that the New York Times calls, "Strikingly Beautiful," and transports the audience into a world of outsized beauty and delight -- but also of overwhelming restrictions and prejudice. There, in communion with the audience, this other Mozart at last tells her story. "Imagine an eleven-year old girl, performing the most difficult sonatas and concertos of the greatest composers, on the harpsichord or fortepiano, with precision, with incredible lightness, with impeccable taste. It was a source of wonder to many." - Augsburger Intelligenz, May 19, 1763. Awards: 2015 DRAMA DESK AWARDS Nomination (Outstanding Sound Design in a Play) 2015 Off-Broadway Alliance Award Nomination (Best Solo Performance) Eight 2015 New York Innovation Theatre Awards nominations - winning Outstanding Solo Performance and Outstanding Original Music in a Play Link: http://www.theothermozart.com

Lubbock Christain School Annual Benefit Event
Lubbock Christian School – Lubbock Christian School is pleased to announce that Ron Hall, The New York Times best-selling author of book (and now movie) Same Kind of Different as Me, has graciously accepted our invitation to speak at our annual fundraiser event. We are thrilled to have him as our honored guest and look forward to a fun-filled evening. The event will take place on Saturday, March 24 at the Texas Tech Frazier Alumni Pavilion. Sponsorships and individual tickets for the event are available by contacting the Lubbock Christian School Development Office at 806-796-8700. Ron Hall was a successful international art dealer, enjoying the good life, until 1998 when he encountered Denver Moore, a homeless man who was threatening to kill everyone in a Fort Worth, Texas shelter where Ron and his wife volunteered. In 2000, Denver moved in with Ron and lived with him for the next ten years. This life-changing encounter inspired Ron to write his first book Same Kind of Different as Me which quickly became a New York Times platinum best-seller. The full title of the best-seller Same Kind of Different as Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together says it all. Hall’s co-author, Denver Moore, was the modern-day slave, a homeless ex-con before being introduced to Hall and his wife through a series of events that Hall considers divinely guided. And now, Hollywood has picked up the story. A movie version based on Ron’s book of the same name was released in October 2017 by Pure Flix Entertainment. The film stars Greg Kinnear, Renee Zellweger, Djimon Hounson and Jon Voight.
