Grab your dancing boots! Theatre Action Project (TAP) presents the Big Hair Country Fair, Saturday, March 24, 2012. The event features hairdos for attendees provided on site by Birds Barbershop stylists. Guests will also enjoy all the Salt Lick BBQ they can eat, refreshments, carnival games and a vintage photo booth complete with costumes. Musical entertainment is provided by Western Swing band Hot Club of Cowtown and Oliver Rajamani.
The Big Hair Country Fair takes place from 7:00 to 11:00 p.m. at the Salt Lick Pavilion, 18300 FM 1826, in nearby Driftwood, Texas. Proceeds benefit Theatre Action Project. TAP artists and educators work in partnership with Austin area schools and communities to lead unique and engaging arts programs allowing young people to learn critical life skills, gain tools for creative expression and have successful experiences that build self-esteem and confidence.
Karen LaShelle, Executive Director of Theatre Action Project touts the fun elements of the event.
Who can resist Texas Swing music, BBQ, a cake walk, carnival games and big bouffant hairdos? This is going to be a raucous fun time–all for a really good cause–supporting the development of young people through the arts. All of the proceeds will directly support our school programs, which cost as little as $2 per child per hour.
Individual tickets are $75. For information about purchasing a table, call: 512- 442-8773. To purchase tickets online, visit: TAP Big Hair.
