Where Justice Ends

Saturday, Apr 27, 2019 at 2:30 PM - English

Where Justice Ends explores the intersection of two important and timely topics of social justice: conditions within the U.S. prison system and the injustices that befall transgender people encountering the law. The film looks into why so many transgender people encounter the police, how those encounters often lead to discriminatory treatment, and the inhumane conditions that transgender people all too frequently experience. Told through the words of transgender inmates and experts and narrated by the Tony award-winning stage, screen and TV actor Brian Stokes Mitchell, Where Justice Ends casts a light on one of the most hidden social injustices in our country.

Outshine is everything you want in a film festival... inviting, glowing, and eclipsing all others before it. Our mission is to inspire, entertain, and educate; encouraging a sense of community through international and culturally diverse film, video, and other media that offer historical and contemporary perspectives on the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender experience.

Teenager Ariel lives a seemingly quiet life with his father and sister on their picturesque farm in a rural part of Buenos Aires. However, unbeknownst to his family, Ariel has been abused for years by Omar, his neighborhood priest. Having confused his mistreatment for romantic affection, Omar ends their relationship and Ariel embarks on a secret affair with one of the male workers on his father’s property. Defiantly unsentimental in its approach, José Celestino Campusano’s richly textured exploration of sex, power and ecclesiastical abuse in Argentine society is a complex and often confrontational piece of work, posing many tough questions without resorting to easy answers.

Always Patsy Cline by Ted Swindley

Saturday, Apr 27, 2019 at 7:30 PM - English

The Wick Theatre is delighted to present Always...Patsy Cline, based on the true story of legendary country artist Patsy Cline's friendship with Houston housewife, Louise Seger. Tickets are $75-$85, website or call the box office.

Louise Seger met her idol in 1961, when Cline went to Houston for a show. Louis arrived early and, by coincidence, met Cline who was traveling alone. They immediately struck up a friendship and over a pot of strong coffee, the women chatted about their common concerns. When Cline left for Dallas, Louise never expected to hear from her idol again. But, a pen-pal relationship followed and provides much of the show's plot.

Show more >>

The play focuses on the fateful evening in 1963 at Houston's Esquire Ballroom when Louis hears of Cline's death in a plane crash. Louis supplies a narrative while Cline floats in and out of the set singing tunes that made her famous Anytime, Walkin' After Midnight, She's Got You, Sweet Dreams, and Crazy to name a few. This brilliant show offers fans a chance to look back, while giving new fans an idea of what experiencing Patsy Cline was like and what she meant to her original fans.

The show stars Terri Dixon and Lourelene Snedeker and is directed by Dom Ruggiero, with musical direction by Caryl Fantel.
