Cornyation dates back to 1964, when it was staged at the Arneson River Theatre as part of A Night in Old San Antonio. Its irreverent pokes at politics and prominent and not-so-prominent world events led to its demise as part of NIOSA. In 1982 local artists and designers revived the celebration and it has grown to be a major part of Fiesta. King Anchovy presides over the festivities surrounding the duchesses, queens, vice empress and empress of the 2014 court's bows. Hilarity, nonsense and merriment escalate as the court unfolds. The all-volunteer crew of more than 150 donates 100 percent of the box office receipts to charity. Refreshments are available. Show recommended for adults only. Ticket prices range from $15 to $30. Tickets are available at the Arts Center Enterprises box office, 224 E. Houston St., and at the The Fiesta Store, 2611 Broadway, starting March 22 at 10 a.m. Tickets will also be available through Ticketmaster (call for details). Doors for the performances will open one hour before show time. All seats reserved.
