Lubbock Christian University’s eight social clubs, much like college fraternities and sororities, each will perform a competitive short show using songs and choreography to tell an original story.
Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Friday, and at both 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, at McDonald Moody Auditorium on the LCU campus.
The overall theme is “A Taste of Follies.”
Judges choose overall winners in men’s and women’s categories, and the audience chooses the People’s Choice winner via a mobile device.
One movie blog died tonight. (She's been sick for a while, ever since I heard about her ultimate replacement.) And I am afraid that her sister blog, concerned with the arts, also has whispered a permanent goodbye.
But I hope to have more fun with a new arts blog.
Looking back, I recall an accepted thought being that I should separate the movies from other arts news -- as a convenience, concluding that a reader may be more interested in one or the other.
A touring, musical version of the holiday story “Miracle on 34th Street” — which focuses on a white-haired gentleman who claims to be the real Kris Kringle (Santa Claus) and his relationship with a cynical child — will be staged at 7 p.m. Dec. 7 at City Bank Auditorium, 2720 Drive of Champions.
Reserved seats are $48.75, $42.75 and $32.50 for adults, and $32.50, $28.50 and $22.50 for children. (Prices include varied service charges.)

Snoop Dogg performed Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M., then on Sunday at the Cactus Courtyard in Lubbock's Depot Entertainment District, before continuing to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and continuing east.
Many are still discussing Sunday's show, which is reviewed HERE.
I arrived at the Cactus Courtyard by 8:30 p.m. Sunday, perhaps not the smartest decision since seating was non-existent and Snoop Dogg would not be taking the stage for more than two hours.
But it gave me time to wander around and introduce myself to a few strangers, finding out how long they had been calling themselves fans of the Doggfather.
You can read some of their comments within the concert review.
Snoop Dogg headlines Sunday, Oct. 23, at the Cactus Courtyard in the Depot Entertainment District.
What is your reaction?
Any Snoop fans out there?
Let me know what you think, and your reaction may also wind up in print before the show.
Yes, it would be accurate to compare Taylor Swift's show to a Las Vegas concert that pulls out all the marbles.
But what set it apart was how all of the visuals and dancing and animation and trapezes and even pyro and fireworks served to emphasize or illustrate the emotions or happenings within a song.
I was really impressed by her entire concert/producton.
Tonight's concert by country-pop star Taylor Swift arrives in the midst of homecoming activities at Texas Tech -- and that has caused some parking and traffic changes for those attending the concert at the United Spirit Arena (USA), 1701 Indiana Ave.
