Cornyation 

April 23/24/25 - Two shows at 7 p.m. or 10 p.m.

Charline McCombs Empire Theatre

226 N. St. Mary's St.

There are two performances for three nights of Cornyation, Fiesta's cheapest, raunchiest event. Take them at their word:This is just that wacky. King Anchovy reigns over the no-holds-barred raspberry fest that ridicules the news and the newsmakers of the day. It's recommended for adults only.

Some 150 volunteers donate their time to make this show work, and 100 percent of the proceeds go to charity.

There is a bar at the theater. Purchase tickets at the Arts Center Enterprise box office at 224 E. Houston St., at the Fiesta Commission Centralized Ticket Sales at 2611 Broadway. A line forms early at the door, but it moves along fast.
