The Doo Wop Project
Mar 29 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

The Doo Wop Project will perform at the Whatley Center for the Arts at Northeast Texas Community College on Friday (Mar 29) at 7:30 p.m. Their show begins at the beginning, tracing the evolution of Doo Wop from the classic sound of five guys singing tight harmonies on a street corner to the biggest hits on the radio today.

In their epic shows The Doo Wop Project takes audiences on a journey featuring foundational tunes from the Crests, Belmonts, and Flamingos through the vocal artistry of Smokey Robinson, The Temptations, and The Four Seasons all the way to DooWopified versions of modern hits from Michael Jackson, Jason Mraz, Maroon 5, and Sam Smith.

“These guys are phenomenally talented, and it is a pleasure to hear them harmonize your favorite songs. If you love doo-wop music or just quality singing in general, you definitely don’t want to miss this show,” Carolyn Franks, Director of the Whatley Center, said.

Featuring stars from the Broadway hits Jersey Boys, Motown: The Musical, and A Bronx Tale, The Doo Wop Project brings unparalleled authenticity of sound and vocal excellence to recreate – and in some cases entirely reimagine – the most excellent music in American pop and rock history.

Tickets are $30 for adults and $10 for students and are included in season ticket packages. The show is sponsored by Kaye and J.T. Brison. Tickets are available online at www.whatleycenter.com or by calling the box office at 903-434-8181. Please note that the box office will be closed March 11-15 for spring break, but ticket orders can be made online anytime.

Cooper State Park – March
Mar 30 all-day

 

Experience Spring at Cooper Lake State Park

Cooper, TX— With March, brings spring to Northeast Texas! What a better place to experience the beginnings of spring than Cooper Lake State Park. Across both park units, as the temperature begins to rise and leaves begin to bud out, a total of 38 programs focused on family fun and learning about our natural world will be presented. March is the month for Spring Break, and multiple events will be presented over these two weeks. Highlighted programs for the month will be on Astronomy, Wildflowers, and Butterflies. Also, attend and learn about a wide variety of plants and animals common to this part of Texas through multiple programs and so much more! Bring each fun and learning packed Saturday to a fitting conclusion with your family and friends relaxing around a campfire at the park! The flickering light and warmth of a campfire will lift your spirit and reconnect you to feelings shared by a past generation. There is no better place to share a story or eat a meal!

Bring a picnic and enjoy the day-use area on a warm Spring Break afternoon. Fish from the bank, off our pier, fishing wall, or rent a kayak and try your luck along the shoreline. Fish attractors have been placed around the Doctor’s Creek floating fishing pier and the fishing wall at South Sulphur to help increase fishing success. Crappie, bluegill, bass, and catfish are commonly caught at both park units. Hike our trails or just relax under a giant Post Oak tree or camp at one of our tree canopied campsites, recharging your soul!

Park entrance fees are $5 for adults with kids 12 and under always free. Senior Texans 65 or older will only pay $3 to enter the park daily with a Bluebonnet Pass. Unlimited park entrances for you and everyone in your vehicle can be accomplished with the purchase of a Texas State Park Annual Pass for $70 which is good for over 12 months. All programs are free with paid entrance fees. For more information on this or other events and programs at Cooper Lake State Park, please visit and friend our Facebook pages (Cooper Lake State Park – South Sulphur 903-945-5256 and Cooper Lake State Park – Doctor’s Creek (903) 395-3100).
