Jason Whitaker has a singular focus when it comes to firearms training: handguns. The NRA-certified instructor starts beginners with the NRA Pistol Class, which teaches novices to safely operate semi-automatic handguns and revolvers. Beyond shooting fundamentals, Whitaker can prepare pupils for the written and live-fire portions of the concealed-handgun-license test. Classes are available in Fort Worth and Tyler.
The halls of the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse are decked in bows of sarcasm as David Sedaris?s sardonic diatribe The Santaland Diaries fills mature audiences with Yuletide cheer and apropos humbug. Adapted from Sedaris?s popular irreverent essay, the play features actor Luke Thomas Eddy embodying the foul mouth and uncomfortable shoes of Crumpet the Elf during a scintillating one-hour, one-man performance. Tearing at a famous department store?s holiday fa?ade like a grizzly bear rudely woken up from hibernation, Crumpet reveals the sordid lives of Santa?s little helpers as they endure the side effects of the holidays. Chock-full of one-liner chestnuts and hilarious humiliation, the show ensures audiences howl with empathy as the embittered elf rants against baffled tourists, entitled parents, and the anti-elves known as children. Like standing under sulfuric mistletoe, The Santaland Diaries gives the season both a heartfelt kiss and a swift kick in the chimney.
