Rockwall Storytelling Guild (RSG) is a family-friendly guild which is open to all ages. In order to meet COVID-19 guidelines, meetings are currently being held online. For in-person meetings (when they resume) and online meetings, we ask parents to remain in the meetings with any children under age 13. Annual membership fees are $12 per person.
As a 2020 Tejas Storytelling Association Mission Grant recipient, we are developing the program we proposed. Due to COVID-19, we are having to be more flexible and creative than we imagined to bring this program to fruition, yet we are having a lot of fun doing it! A murder mystery, a giant, and a talking wall…oh my! They are mere glimpses into the story of Rockwall.

Affiliate Organizations

Dobie Dichos, Inc.
Dobie Dichos started in 2011 at the suggestion of Dobie Dichos emcee and author, William Sibley, and via the instigation of former George West Storyfest Exec. Director, Mary Margaret Campbell. The yearly event (always the first Friday in November) honors Live Oak County’s most famous son, J. Frank Dobie, and celebrates Dobie’s works and contributions to literature, folklore, and storytelling. Invited Texas writers/authors and storytellers (some famous, some infamous!) read from, discuss, debate and/or tell stories from the works of J. Frank Dobie on the grounds of the Historic Oakville Jail, located in Oakville, TX on IH37 in Live Oak County (between Three Rivers and George West.)

Dobie West Performing Arts Theatre
ghstraus@ymail.com • 361-436-1098
P.O Box 1223 or 304 Houston Street, George West, TX 78022

In 2004 the owners of the historical movie theatre (West Theatre) were given to a group of citizens in George West. It was decided that the theatre could be renovated and made into a performing arts theatre. Thus the Dobie West Performing Arts Theatre in George West was established. After years of grant applications, raffles, dinners, the Dobie West Performing Arts Theatre was a reality.
Dobie West Performing Arts Theatre is operated solely for the purpose of performing the art, craft, and history of the performing arts, providing a venue whereby children and adults will have the opportunity to perform literature through plays, storytelling, music, and dance; assisting local performance in developing their skills; educating the community concerning the value of performing arts in the contemporary life, and serving the community through educational and cultural experiences.

Each month the Dobie West Performing Arts Theatre presents some type of program. Most programs feature outside performers: musical concerts, comedians, or dance. At least one program each year is a play with actors who come from George West and surrounding towns. Because the theatre board wished to make the performers available to everyone they have chosen to make all tickets $10. Because the theatre is a 501(c)(3) entity, donations are encouraged.
