Tompkins Fine Arts

Tompkins Fine Arts Department presents Based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, Shrek The Musical is a Tony Award-winning fairy tale adventure. “Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek....” And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand... and his name is Shrek. Irreverently fun for the whole family, on the stage of Tompkins High School Performing Arts Center, Shrek proves that beauty is truly in the eye of the ogre!

The best deals will come around Presidents Day weekend. 2. Perfume and cologne: Perfume and cologne are typically a good buy ahead of Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14 th . But here’s the deal: A lot of brands don’t actually mark their prices down, but instead offer a gift with purchase or a discounted purchase if you buy another cosmetic item. 3. Outerwear: Expect to find rock-bottom prices on winter outerwear in February. Stores need to clear the racks for their spring inventory and bulky coats have to go. 4. Ski and snow gear: Snowboards, skiwear and ski equipment will be marked down in February until the racks are cleared. Most ski resorts will close out the season by trying to eliminate any extra inventory. This is also a good time to get deals on lift tickets and ski packages. 5. Snacks and canned foods: February is National Canned Food Month, so expect to find some great deals. Check your local grocery stores for their weekly sale ad. Most stores run sales starting Feb. 1 st . 6. Chocolate: If you can wait until Feb. 15 th , the day after Valentine’s Day and don’t mind eating heart-shaped chocolate, you will score fantastic deals on high quality chocolate.

Katy has the hometown feel of the both small towns that Patrick and Melissa were born in. Patrick is originally from Lumberton, Texas and Melissa was born in Hardinsburg, Kentucky. People in Katy are friendly and always willing to lend a helping hand to their neighbors. Katy is “country” with all the amenities of the city and Houston is close enough that if you want to see a major sporting event, concert, theater, etc., you are able to. We love the people and pride in Tigerland!” What They Love to Do This family most enjoys the local parks in Katy, feeding ducks and being in the outdoors. They love to explore the local businesses in Old Katy, especially antique and resale shops where hidden treasures are often found. The Katy Rice Harvest Festival is one of their most anticipated events of the year, as well as the parade and the Katy Rodeo. Love is in the Air How They Express It: “Something you will hear many times a day in our home is one person will say ‘Love y’all’ and you will hear all the other family members reply with ‘Love y’all.’ Levi is usually the first one to prompt this but we all do it when we want to. I think this makes our family unique because we do remind each other through our love language of what we mean to each other, daily.” Celebrating Valentine’s Day: The family gets in the spirit of this holiday by enjoying mom’s decorating in a special part of their home, and indulging in a nice meal together at home or at a restaurant. They give each other special tokens of their admiration for each other and of course, enjoy creating, crafting and delivering their Valentines. What Makes It Tick: They love reminding their family and friends about how much they mean to them, which is what Valentine’s Day is all about for this tribe. Keeping in mind how much Jesus loves them and how He asks them to love one another is also an important reflection on this holiday. Family Roster Dad: Patrick, Machine Shop Supervisor (Precision-Hayes, Sugar Land). Machinist for over 25 years, learned the trade in his dad’s machine shop in Beaumont, TX.
