The Georgetown Palace Theater’s Current Production Is The CATS Meow

Georgetown Palace Theatre Your Local Color.ComCATS has always been a favorite of mine, not because I have ever seen it all the way through, but because it was my daughter’s favorite. Several years ago she got to know this famous Broadway musical and fell in love with it. She had a video of it and would have it running on our living room TV very regularly.

I probably watched several hours of CATS over those years, catching bits and pieces here and there, but like I said, I don’t think I’ve ever watched it from beginning to end. I wish I had. CATS was just ever-present in our home. I even learned some of the lyrics to the musical just by listening to my daughter singing the songs while she puttered around the house. That really is a happy memory. [Read more…]

Georgtown’s Own – Arts Avenue For Kids

Arts Avenue for Kids Georgetown TexasVicki Henderson is one of those rare and fortunate individuals who has known what she was meant to do almost all of her life. From the age of five Vicki was involved in theater, performing first at church and later in high school and then college. Vicki’s talents and energies received additional focus while when she was in high school. It was at that time that she felt a calling to serve God through her theatrical talents.

Mrs. Henderson now is the owner of a Christian theater, dance, and music studio for local kids in Georgetown called Arts Avenue for Kids. Her journey to Georgetown took her across the United States but most notably through Colorado, Minnesota, Chicago, Round Rock, Austin and finally to her studio on East University Drive just west of Southwestern University. Before starting Arts Avenue for Kids, Vicki also found time to earn three degrees, write and perform in her own plays, find a husband, and have three children. One of those children, Ashlyn, was the subject of an earlier story I did about her wonderful handmade soaps and doll clothes.
