On Oct. 6 we bring back our recreational, social bike ride known as Something Monday. For this new season, we visit The Magik Theatre located inside Hemisfair Park.

The Magik Theatre is one of San Antonio’s leading performing arts organizations that has been entertaining and educating children since its opening in 1994. The theatre is San Antonio’s only professional, resident repertory theater company, and has produced over 160 main-stage and touring shows to date.

We will depart from the B-cycle station located in the Full Goods Building parking lot at The Pearl at 6:30 p.m. From there we will make our way downtown to the Magik Theatre where we will be greeted by Executive Director Richard Rosen, who will talk about the theatre’s mission, goals and upcoming changes with parks redevelopment efforts. Artistic Coordinator David Morgan will  give us a firsthand look at what it takes to put on a show and lead us on a backstage tour of the facility.

We will also get a chance to watch a scene from their upcoming performance, “Miss Nelson is Missing,” a hilarious classic play that follows Miss Swamp as she uses her ideas of tough love to control an unruly classroom, based on the book by Harry Allard.

Once we conclude the tour, we will make our way back up to The Pearl for some drinks at Blue Box.

You don’t need to be a serious cyclist to join or even own a bike. You can rent a bike from the B-cycle station where we are meeting up. The weather should be amazing with highs in the mid to low ’80s, so the ride should be awesome. Bring friends and make some new ones. Helmets are recommended but, of course, optional.

Something Monday will now be on the first or second Monday of each Month. Stay tuned for details about November’s event.
