It’s that time of year! The semi-intrepid journalists of San Antonio, past and present, are heading back to the stage for the 2019 Gridiron fundraiser, a boisterous spoof of local, state and national politicians and news events, risking their reputations and occasionally a little bruising to raise thousands of dollars for student journalists.
There will be two shows, one on Oct. 11 (the preview — still a little rough) and one Oct. 12 (the real deal), both at 7:30 p.m. at Texas A&M University San Antonio’s excellent auditorium.

This year’s theme is Enemies of the State. And, yes, it means just what you think. Our Chief Executive has once again given us plenty of fodder. Not to mention the antics of some of our own elected officials. It’s gonna be a doozy, folks!
Over the years, SPJSA has awarded tens of thousands of dollars to scores of college students and our wonderful, long-suffering audiences have been the reason.
Be a sport and join us again! We will have beer and wine available in the lobby at $5 a pop as well as sodas and water. You’ll need to bring your own handkerchiefs, though. We’re expecting to reduce you to tears with laughter — we hope!
