Recognition comes with apology at City Council meeting

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A public apology came during the Lubbock City Council meeting Wednesday morning from a local music director.

After a special recognition for Moonlight Musicals, the director publicly apologized to Councilman Paul Beane. "Councilman Beane, we are sorry for any hurt or embarrassment that has occurred to you or your family with relationship to Lubbock Moonlight Musicals; we look forward to a great relationship with you, your family, and the city of Lubbock in the years to come."

Councilman Beane says the apology came from an incident that occurred last year during a performance. He says he asked performers to stop a Moonlight Musical production due to lightning. He was accused of shouting and swearing at a staff member, but denied the accusations, which was then later confirmed by a police report.

After the apology on Wednesday, Beane praised the production company. "I think that Moonlight Musicals is probably one of the most unique experiences you can have in Lubbock, Texas."
