Snow White

There will be a fund raiser for the San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet at Morgan's Wonderland. Meet the cast of the upcoming S.A. Met's production of "Snow White" that day.  And of course, don't forget to get your tickets for "Snow White" running November 15 and 16. Pammy and I are building props for the show and she'll be playing the part of the evil queen disguised as the old hag. It's going to be a great performance by our favorite ballet company.

Buck at the Book Fair

L to R: Guadalupe Garcia McCall, Carolyn Flores, myself, Tandy Gutierrez and Xaxier Garza.

Late last month I helped out at the Southwest Texas Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Book Fair held at the San Pedro Barnes and Noble. My contribution was a clown demo which was a lot of fun to do. Posted above is a pic with myself as Buck Dillwater: Doofus Extraordinaire and some of the guest writers and illustrators.

El Vato Suave
  Rodolfo Garcia a.k.a. "Don Fito: El Vato Suave" of La Carpa Garcia.       

La Carpa Garcia

SaySi's production of "La Carpa Garcia" , the true story of a tent show from San Antonio, Texas,had another successful run this past weekend with sold out shows for the entire weekend! Once again I had the honor and pleasure of playing the role of the elderly Rodolfo Garcia a.k.a. El Vato Suave: Don Fito, featured clown of the Carpa Garcia.

 La Carpa Garcia was family owned Mexican American circus/ theatre show that traveled across the southwest during the first half of the 20th century. It's a little known piece of San Antonio's history that thankfully is being preserved and shared with San Antonians.
