That's right our very own James Donegan is returning home to sing a benefit concert for the Texas Theater. Although he has lived in New York for 20 years, James says he is still a hometown boy at heart.

He will use the concert, entitled “Songs You (Should) Know,” to reminisce about his life growing up in Seguin and his career as an actor — one that has spanned continents, but that started right here in Seguin.

The 90-minute concert will feature music from classic shows like Oklahoma!, Annie, Annie Get Your Gun, The Pajama Game, Guys & Dolls and many more. A reception will follow in the Texas Theater’s Chandelier Room.
James has also invited a very special guest to sing with him on stage, his niece Ellie Follis! “I am especially excited to share the stage with my niece Elizabeth Follis,” he said. “She earned so many accolades while she was at Seguin High School, and it’s about time we sing together!”

General admission tickets are available at Gift & Gourmet, Keepers, Seguin Chamber of
Commerce, online at thetexas.org or over the phone: 830-372-6168.
Elizabeth Update
Hi St. Andrew's Family!

Aren't I just so adorable?! Look how big I am! I am growing so fast! I have really loved meeting the few of you who have come to visit me, and I can't wait to meet the rest of you! Hopefully that will happen soon. My mommy has written a note to send to all of you and Mrs. Charlene told me that she will get it out to all of you today, so keep a look out for it! I'm tired now so I am going to go take a nap. Until next time...

Love,
Elizabeth
