Boots and Bling Bring Chesnutt to Cowtown

by Joy Donovan on October 17, 2012

Mark Chesnutt will entertain at the Cowtown Ball, set for Nov. 3 at River Ranch.

FORT WORTH _ Country star Mark Chesnutt, famed artist behind eight number-one hits, will be the featured entertainer at the 20th anniversary Cowtown Ball, the annual western-style gala benefiting the American Cancer Society (

Chesnutt’s first album, “Too Cold at Home,” produced five straight top-10 country hits. His chart-toppers include “Longnecks & Short Stories,” “Bubba Shot the Jukebox,” “It Sure is Monday” and “Gonna Get a Life.”

The 2012 Cowtown Ball, with the theme “Boots & Bling,” will be held Nov. 3 at River Ranch in the Fort Worth Stockyards. Tickets are available by calling 817-570-0633.

The western-styled gala has raised more than $5 million the past two decades for the American Cancer Society in Tarrant County. This year’s event will again feature dinner, dancing, casino games, auctions, midway games and more.

As the nation’s leading non-profit funding source for cancer research, the American Cancer Society works to eradicate cancer, the second leading cause of death in the U.S.

“Ken and The Thompson Group at Classic Chevrolet have been the Gala’s Presenting Sponsor for five years now,” said Shonda Schaefer, GRACE executive director. “However, he has known, invested and supported GRACE over the past 25 years.”

The GRACE Gala – Angels Among Us is set for Saturday in the grand ballroom at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. The fundraiser will mark the 25th anniversary of GRACE, a non-profit that serves those in crisis in northeast Tarrant County.

REVIEW: Musical Treats in Time for Halloween

by Joy Donovan on

How many users have made right decision? ? Sixty-three percent, 74%, and 82% of the patients on 25 mg, 50 mg and 100 mg of our medications, respectively, reported an improvement in their health.

Talk about perfect timing-”The Addams Family” musical makes it to Dallas in time for the holiday–Halloween, of course. That would have to be the high holy days for this show based on the bizarre, twisted family first created by cartoonist Charles Addams in the 1930s.

Yes, the creepy, cartoonish Morticia, Gomez, Uncle Fester, Wenesday and Pugsley have hit the stage at the Music Hall at Fair Park for the north Texas premier of the national tour. The musical comedy with a look on the dark side of life gives those in the mood to celebrate this month of spookiness a festive alternative to haunted houses.

This musical features the Addams Family, once the subject of numerous cartoons and a 1960s TV show, in a bit of a family dilemna. Daughter Wednesday has fallen in love with a boy who is–gasp–rather normal. He’s from middle America, and his mother dares to wear yellow, shocking to the Addams, a family entrenched in black.

The show is clever with its sometimes dark, sometimes PG-rated humor. Cortney Wolfson is adorably kooky as Wednesday with a great voice. Douglas Sills as Gomez, who remains smitten with his shapely wife, and Blake Hammond as the moon-obsessed Uncle Fester are terrific in their roles. The ghostly-spirits of the ensemble are great dancers who add a lot to the show. Sara Gettelfinger’s turn as Morticia is remarkable mostly for her ability to refrain from a wardrobe malfunction in a dress that is cut distractingly, scarily low.

“The Addams Family” opened on Broadway in March of 2010 and closed in December 2011. It was a popular show with audiences, but one without much critical acclaim. No Tony Award for this show, and neither does it boast a real toe-tapping musical number. So it’s fun like candy corn or popcorn balls–nothing too meaty but something that leaves you happy.

Dallas Summer Musicals ( presents this spirited musical through Oct. 21. Bring your fingers to snap along with the overture, and you’ll open the door to more treats that creeps.
