Just a few weeks remain until the world premiere of Remember at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. In partnership with the Tobin Endowment, the Alamo will present Remember for only two performances on Saturday, February 29.

This once-in-a-lifetime musical performance will speak to the legends, lore, and true spirit of Texas. With a 60-piece symphony courtesy of the San Antonio Symphony, 11 actors, and a 75-voice chorus, Remember will be a unique telling of the story of the Battle of the Alamo.

With just a few weeks left until the show, we would like to introduce to the production’s two lead actors, Ben Jones and Michael Dailey.

Jones, who will play William Barret Travis, who has been rated as “show-stopping” by the San Francisco Classical Voice, has performed in productions of Sweeney Todd, Guys and Dolls, The Last Five Years, and Cats. You can find more information about Ben Jones on his website, and even listen to his latest single “She Used To Be Mine.”

Michael Dailey has been a featured tenor soloist with the Berkeley Symphony, Virginia Beach Symphony Orchestra, and has performed over 32 principal roles with opera companies like Theater an der Wien, Opera San Jose, and New York Harlem Productions. Opera News describes Dailey as “blessed with freshness.” Dailey will play Stephen F. Austin when Remember hits the stage on February 29.

Remember takes place during Commemoration, the 13-day period of the year where the Alamo honors the anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo with special events and programming. This year marks the 184th anniversary of the battle in 1836. If you’re visiting San Antonio between February 23 and March 6, we encourage you to experience some of Commemoration programming, like Dawn at the Alamo, La Gran Marcha del Ejercito Mexicano, An Evening With Heroes, The Immortal 32 Arrive, and more.

Tickets for Remember are on sale now, for as low as $29.50, which can be purchased on the Tobin Center’s website.
