September was a whirlwind start to the 2015/16 performance season. After a last minute illness in the cast, Mr. Estabrooks stepped in with only weeks to spare, learning the 375 page score and making his Houston debut as Houston Oilers football coach, Bum Phillips.
With full orchestra, cowboy hats, fur coats and a cast of 40, the team embarked on a 2 weeks journey from first look to performance, in this unique telling of the Bum Phillips story. The benefit performance took place on September 24, 2015 at the Stafford Centre, benefiting the important work of the Bum Phillips Charity.
The One-Night-Only benefit, brought many former teammates and legends to the performance, include the daughter and wife of the late Bum. It was a thrilling experience for all involved.
