Gridiron 2022 is coming – Honest!

Just as the coronavirus was finally releasing its stranglehold on the community and most everybody was easing back into the colorful whirl of the San Antonio social scene, COVID-19’s nasty delta variant emerged. And then came omicron.

With too many people still refusing to get vaccinated and more and more people tiring of wearing masks, the better-safe-than-sorry producers of Gridirion 2021 opted for another virtual show and work began in earnest. But it was not to be. The pandemic proved too tough a cookie. We ended up with no show at all in 2021. Que lastima (sadness).

But never fear: Our intrepid team of would-be thespians and our never-say-die fans are not to be denied! In response, the producers have decided to go with a live show this year in our usual fall spot. Yes! Viva Gridiron 2022!

Work will soon begin on the eye-rolling skits, ridiculously silly videos and amazingly complex dance numbers to showcase the past year’s infamous, glorious and sometimes squeamish moments of note. The Gridiron production and script meetings will be in person and on Zoom — it is convenient!

Major matters have been in hot debate.

Who’s going to be in the cool cameos? Will The Donald make a comeback? What song will Michael Quintanilla choose for his video?

For those who saw it, “Gridiron 2020: Socially Distant” was a riot! And that’s not just us talking; we heard at least a few good reviews that didn’t come from our Moms. Honest! We left the 2020 logo in the space above for now as a tribute, and because artist Joaquin Herrera did a really nice job on it.

So much has happened since the 2020 show. Good, bad and just plain awful. Plenty of fodder for our slightly off-kilter team. Just wait until you see what we have coming for you this year — there’s going to be something to offend everyone, you know it. Tía Janie will bring out the chancla for sure!


THE A-TEAM IS BACK

The creative mind of Entertainer Extraordinaire Michael Quintanilla is bursting with ideas, as are the brains of Director/Choreographer Francisco Saucedo Jr. and Executive Producers Nora López and David Elizondo.

We’re looking at another tour de farce, folks! Start saving those nickles and dimes and make plans to join us this fall for Gridiron 2022, coming to a theater to be announced soon!
