OK, folks, it’s for real this time.
Gridiron 2022: Scarier than ever! will be Saturday, Oct. 29. Buy your tickets now!
This Halloween-themed event of a lifetime will feature all the colorful characters you’ve come to know and love (or hate) and plenty of new ones, too!
The much-anticipated production will take place at the Buena Vista Theater at the University of Texas at San Antonio’s downtown campus, near the corner of S. Frio and Buena Vista streets.
Now, most of you know our recent history. Just as the coronavirus was finally releasing its stranglehold on the community and most everybody was easing back into the colorful whirl of the San Antonio social scene, COVID-19’s nasty delta variant emerged. And then came omicron.
With too many people still refusing to get vaccinated and more and more people tired of wearing masks, the better-safe-than-sorry producers of Gridiron 2021 opted for another virtual show and work began in earnest.
But it was not to be. The pandemic proved too tough a cookie. We ended up with no show at all in 2021. Que lastima (much sadness).
But never fear: Our intrepid team of would-be thespians and our never-say-die fans were not to be denied for long! The producers decided to go with a live, in-person show this year in our usual fall spot.
Yes! It’s alive! Bwahaha! Gridiron 2022 lives!
We will have our traditional eye-rolling skits, ridiculously silly videos and amazingly complex dance numbers (or so our amateur actors tell us) to showcase the past year’s infamous, glorious and sometimes squeamish moments of note.
Major matters have been in hot debate.
Who’s going to be in the cool cameos? Will Monkeypox come into play? What amazing production will Michael Quintanilla create for his always-hot video?
Now, we didn’t have a show in 2021, but we did have a virtual one in 2020.
For those who saw it, “Gridiron 2020: Socially Distant” was a riot! And that’s not just us talking; we heard at least a few good reviews that didn’t come from our Moms. Honest!
So much has happened since the 2020 show. Good, bad and just plain awful. Plenty of fodder for our slightly off-kilter team. Just wait until you see what we have coming for you this year — there’s going to be something to offend everyone, you know it. Tía Janie will bring out the chancla for sure!
THE A-TEAM IS BACK
As referenced above, the creative mind of Entertainer Extraordinaire Michael Quintanilla is bursting with ideas, as are the brains of Director/Choreographer Francisco Saucedo Jr. and Executive Producers Nora López and David Elizondo.
We’re looking at another tour de farce, folks! So pull out those nickels and dimes and make plans to join us Oct. 29 for Gridiron 2022. Tickets are on sale online: Click here. Go Gridiron Go!
