To all of the Soloists performing at the January Jubilee:

Did you know:
The saying "BREAK A LEG" dates back to Shakespeare's time.
Telling some one to "BREAK A LEG" before performing started because it is considered bad luck to say good luck to performers before they go on.

Back then, rather than receiving tips directly from the company or theatre, tipping was left to the audience. During the final bows or curtain call, audiences would throw money, usually coins, onto the stage depending on how well they enjoyed the performance. In some bad performances they would throw rotten vegetables, but in the good cases, money. Actors would then 'take a knee', effectively breaking their leg line, on stage and pick up the money. As a result, when a person wishes someone to 'break a leg' it refers to wishing them success in their performance so in the end they would have to kneel down and collect a welcome tip.

January Jubilee Information

Here are the performance times for the January Jubilee this Friday. Cost is $5 to get in and it is at Friendswood High School.
