by Tamarie Cooper and Patrick Reynolds

June 21 through August 3 at MATCH

(Midtown Arts & Theatre Center Houston)
Tamarie and her merry band of musical maniacs are taking on the great state of Texas. 27 installments of all-new, full-scale original Tamarie Cooper musicals and there’s never been one about Texas? What? We’ve been saving it for you.

Expect huge dance numbers, massive songs, and gigantic belly laughs. Why? Because everything’s bigger in Texas, you tourist. This humongous patch of land and all its inhabitants are ripe for spoofing. Bank on high school football, gas station beavers, flag parades, giant roaches, tons of guns, the glory of Whataburger, and a love letter to the best city in the Lone Star State, H-Town, Baby! 

Tamarie's Texas Toast is both a toast and a roast of all things Texas. As always, Tamarie will be joined by a live band and a cast of Houston's funniest performers, bringing you an entirely original and completely irreverent musical bonanza. All from the bottom of Tamarie's Texas-sized heart.

This all-original musical, with a book written by Tamarie’s longtime collaborator, Patrick Reynolds, features crowd-favorite co-star Kyle Sturdivant and a company of TCS veterans and newcomers, plus a killer band. And sooo many costume changes!
