The stage at Kerrville’s Cailloux Theater will come alive with international acts, popular favorites and several “exclusive in this area” shows for the 2019-20 season of Cailloux Performances.
Jeffrey Brown, executive director of Playhouse 2000 and the Cailloux Theater, announced the lineup for the eighth season at a Launch Party in the theater last week.
“The focus this season was on finding performances that people in this area might not get the opportunity to see otherwise,” Brown said. “Half of the acts are exclusive or ‘first time in Texas’ shows, with the others making special trips to our theater. We’re offering shows you simply can’t see in other venues outside of large cities.”
Brown developed Cailloux Performances to bring eclectic, high-quality performances to Hill Country audiences. The complete schedule:
SEPT. 8, 2019 - FOUR ITALIAN TENORS
