Comedian William Lee Martin, All American Mutt Comedy Tour

  • Historic Paramount Theatre
  • 352 Cypress St.Abilene
  • 325-676-9620
  • 04/17/21 - 04/17/21
  • 7 to 9:30 p.m.
  • Visit website for details.

Barreling into 2021 with fresh bits and new material, the Fort Worth, Texas comedian will leave you drying your eyes and wanting more. Staying busy in 2020, William Lee hosted a 24-hour online marathon, began a daily chat with fans on Facebook Live, and released songs like 'Look Out Santa Clause,' 'Bank Fishing,' and 'I’ll Stand for You.' Don’t miss one of Texas’ brightest stars when he comes to town with his new tour. 

Recommended for ages 18+

Out of Texas comes the real deal, Comedian William Lee Martin. William Lee Martin’s storytelling approach takes audiences on a journey, leaving them with 'favorite routines' more than 'favorite punchlines.' With his signature cowboy hat, boots and Texas drawl, it would be easy to lump the blue-eyed, 6-foot-2-inch Martin into the category of 'another guy doing country act.' But don’t be fooled by outward appearances, as his on-stage persona is no act – his middle-America storytelling is as genuine as it gets. Drawing from real life experiences, Martin’s vibrant routine reflects life as a husband, father and friend. And that authenticity is connecting with mainstream America, crossing culture lines and social status boundaries. But no matter the topic, Martin’s gentlemanly wit and charm prove he’s no dummy, redneck, or hillbilly. His humor is sharp, original and occasionally laced with sarcasm and innuendo, but without the overt adult language prevalent with so many in today’s comedy landscape.

The Grace Museum Exhibition - Creating a Community: The State Epileptic Colony in Abilene

This exhibition will highlight the early history of the State Epileptic Colony in Abilene through over 50 photographs from The Grace’s permanent history collection. In 1904, the institution was founded to help individuals with epilepsy through research, care, isolation, and offering a place to work and live. The complex consisted of an administration building, a power plant, a women’s and men’s hospital, four cottages, and a home for the superintendent. The hospital was a state of the art facility and housed 200 patients by the fall of 1904. By the 1920s, the state of Texas expressed the desire to include individuals with mental health disabilities and renamed the colony the Abilene State Hospital and added a recreation building, x-ray laboratories, twin dormitories, and a warehouse. The named changed to Abilene State School in the 1950s and later the Abilene State Supported Living Center. The current living center is dedicated to treatment, rehabilitation, independence, and helping individuals feel safe and healthy.

This exhibition was created by Abilene’s Hispanic Heritage Display Committee, a group committed to archiving, preserving, and displaying the histories of Hispanics in Abilene for the community and its future generations.

This exhibition highlights just a small portion of the rich history of music, dance, and entertainment in Abilene’s Hispanic/Latino community. Music and dance are an integral part of Hispanic/Latino culture, as they incorporate native and Spanish traditions to create a unique blend of rhythms, beats, movements, and lyrics. Abilene has a long history and tradition of conjunto music and ballet folklorico, both of which are represented in this exhibition.

Conjunto music was the precursor to current Tejano music, where each band usually had an accordion, bajo sexto (12-string bass guitar), and drums (later, other instruments were added). In addition, Spanish radio stations in Abilene have led the way to promote both the conjunto and Tejano music we enjoy today.

Ballet Folklorico, derived from traditional folk dancing, incorporates religious topics, historical themes, and oral histories. It was mainly modernized in the 1950s in Mexico City and became popular in the United States in the 1960s. The dancers promote a sense of community and ability to share their heritage through the expressive form of dance. This exhibition highlights two local Ballet Folklorico groups that are vital to the culture of Abilene.

The Grace Museum Exhibition - From This Day Forward: Wedding Dresses, 1870s-1950s

A white wedding dress is a relatively new and modern concept and is mostly worn in the Americas and western European countries. Wedding dresses throughout the world and time have varied greatly in color, style, and tradition. Even in the Western part of the world in Roman times brides wore a yellow veil and Ancient Athenians wore long violet or reddish robes. (Summer Brennan, 'A Natural History of the Wedding Dress', September 27, 2017, jStor Daily). For many centuries, brides wore their finest gown or dress for their weddings regardless of color. It wasn’t until Queen Victoria donned her white wedding dress in 1840 that white became a popular color for wedding dresses throughout Europe and the Americas. This exhibition highlights what we now call “traditional” wedding dresses belonging to various individuals in Abilene and the surrounding areas from the late 1890s to the 1930s, most of which are in the permanent collection at The Grace Museum.
