TBRU reveals starting artwork for upcoming Bears Gone Wild

To prepare for March’s Texas Bear Round-Up, the guys behind the event released the starting art for the upcoming TBRU 17: Bears Gone Wild Spring Break Style this past Sunday. They also remind that registration will be starting soon so all the bears can begin their planning and booking. But no other details about TBRU 17 have been released or mentioned.

The event, as always, is held the third weekend of March which, this year, will be March 16–18.

Earlier this year, the event raised a staggering $46,000 for area charities. Seems like the bears know what they’re doing.

‘Spring Awakening’ opens at Bass Hall tonight

Just two days for ‘Spring’ break
Once you get past the darkness of the original version on Monday, do a 180 with the updated musical Spring Awakening. Musician Duncan Sheik penned the music and the touring show features local actress Elizabeth Judd. She’s kind of a big deal as the female lead.  So is the show which won eight Tony awards including best musical.

DEETS: Bass Hall, 525 Commerce St., Fort Worth. Nov. 9–10. 7:30 p.m. BassHall.com.
