Sam Houston presents “The Lion of Texas”

May 6, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on May 7, 2017 at 2:00pm

Texas icon Sam Houston will be portrayed in the one-man show “The Lion of Texas” May 6 and 7 at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center, 1400 Texas Drive in Weatherford. Saturday night’s performance will be held after a chuck wagon dinner on the lawn of the Doss Center and will end with a VIP meet and greet with Sam Houston.  The dinner begins at 5 p.m., the show at 6 p.m. and the VIP meet and greet will commence at the end of the presentation at 8 p.m.  The matinee performance is Sunday, May 7 from 2-4 p.m. and is appropriate for all ages.

Learn about Sam Houston’s heroism at the Battle of San Jacinto and hear about his experience as the first president of the Republic of Texas.

“The Lion of Texas” is modeled after the award-winning “Mark Twain Tonight” one man show performed by Hal Holbrook. Sam Houston’s character is brought to life and written by a Texan named Sam Houston who gives the audience an intimate look at the Texas icon. The show has garnered acclaim from groups throughout Texas.

An essay contest will be held in conjunction with the event for seventh grade Texas History students about Sam Houston. Winners will receive free tickets to the Sunday matinee and will have their essays printed in the evening’s program.

“We are looking forward to sharing this exciting evening featuring Texas hero Sam Houston,” said Dean Hungate, Board President at the Doss.  “We hope you come to either the Saturday night event or the Sunday matinee with your family to enjoy this special program. The funds raised will be used to bring great exhibits, educational programs and events to the Doss for our community to enjoy,” he continued.

Different packages are available which can include all three activities (chuck wagon dinner, performance, VIP meet-and-greet) or simply the show with cost ranging from $25 to $100 per person. The Sunday matinee cost is $25 for adults and $10 for students.

Tickets and event packages are available now on the museum’s website at www.dosscenter.com, by calling 817-599-6168, on in person at 1400 Texas Drive in Weatherford.
