Learn more about the Clickety
Cloggers, please visit their website.
|It is hard to believe, but the Clickety Cloggers
have been performing at Bastrop Yesterfest since at least 1990. In the
early days, the festival was held in Fisherman’s Park alongside the Colorado
River. They performed on a basketball court in
the park for a few years and on a temporary wooden stage for a few years.
One year, they performed at a house at the edge of the park. Whey
Yeserfes twas moved from the park to downtown the Clickety Cloggers started
performing at the Opera House.
So what is clogging? Clogging is a fast-paced,
high energy dance form.
The Clickety Cloggers are dancers whose high energy
performances are rooted in traditional Appalachian-style clogging with
a modern flair. We use a wide variety of music from country western to
rock to bluegrass, dancing to just about any music with a fast beat. Clogging
is a traditional American dance style that is lively and just plain fun
to do and fun to watch. The Clickety Cloggers perform regularly at festivals
and events throughout Central Texas to show audiences what clogging is
all about. They enjoy introducing their audiences to this traditional American

in the Opera House: A dozen paintings by Nancy Benner
Nancy Benner paints with oil, watercolor, and acrylics, but prefers
oil and watercolor. She began painting at age 12, in private lessons.
The teacher had an entirely different style so painting was set aside until
her later teen years. She did participate during those years in a lot of
art projects at school, even winning some awards. Her favorite artists
are Dalhart Windberg, G. Harvey, Mark Pettit, and Ruth Ortiz. She enjoys
painting in their styles. She feels that her landscapes are her best, though
she does put people in some of her paintings as well as ancient buildings
and scenes from Europe; sometimes painting from photos taken while traveling.
Nancy enjoys teaching her Sunday School class where she and Alton are
very involved in the activities and responsibilities of their church. She
also enjoys clog dancing, sewing (where she won a ribbon at the State Fair
in Dallas), designing (especially quilts) and home décor as well.
Her love for the Bastrop Opera House began when the "Bastrop Yesterfest"
had the cloggers do their annual clogging show on stage there. Nancy
lives in Manchaca, in a home designed and built by Nancy and Alton, her
husband of 56 years. They have a son and daughter and 7 grandchildren.

"Raise the Roof Fundraiser"
you visit the Bastrop Opera House, you are visiting a piece of Bastrop
and Texas history. Bastrop merchants P. Otto Elzner and S.D. Green
agreed to build the Opera House in 1889 at a reported cost of $15,000.
Now 124 year later, more than three times that amount is needed just to
repair the roof to preserve this unique piece of history.
The historic Bastrop Opera House
has launched an emergency capital campaign to repair the roof. We have
a ways to go, but we will get there with your help. Thank you to
all who of you who donated, entertained, volunteered, participated, appreciated,
and joined us. Contributors
and Donors Thank You List.
Please keep those donations pouring in,
so we can stop the rain from pouring in.
The Bastrop Opera
House is the heart of live theater in Bastrop and needs to be preserved.
funding of a new roof is crucial. After the incredible heat of last
summer, the rain of this new year have pointed out more leaks in the over-twenty-year-old
tin roof. With contraction and expansion the nails have popped out
and where there had been tar and sealant along the down spout alleys, cracks
have occurred. Rather than merely patching repeatedly what is there,
a complete overhaul needs to be initiated. Therefore, several fundraising
occured including special music programs, like the Classic Country Music
Shows, where the proceeds will be placed in our building fund for a preservation
project of this nature.
You may send a donations
for the "roof restoration project" to the Bastrop Opera House, P.O. Box
691, Bastrop, Texas 78602. You may also make an online donation of
any amount on the Bastrop Opera House site at http://bastropoperahouse.com/sponsorship.htm,
or you may donate by clicking this button, and entering how much you'd
like to donate.
Donations so far are $11,645 toward the $50,000 goal. THANK YOU!
