Cornyation is awarding over $150,000 to HIV/AIDS programs.</p><p>Cornyation is spoof of the Fiesta Coronation. Every year people pack the Empire Theatre for a glitzy and campy San Antonio-themed satire. All of the money generated from tickets and fundraisers is donated. At the Friendly Spot Ice House, Cornyation’s board announced it raised $168,000 this year.</p> Wed, 18 Jun 2014 21:13:03 +0000 Joey Palacios 33640 at http://tpr.org Fiesta Cornyation Donates $80,000 Each To San Antonio AIDS Foundation, Beat AIDS Cornyation 2014: The Court Of Festive Fetes & Frivolous Faux Pas http://tpr.org/post/cornyation-2014-court-festive-fetes-frivolous-faux-pas <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">Fiesta involves kings, queens and other pseudo royalty, but even the city’s light-hearted 18-day celebration needs some satire on itself. </span>Cornyation<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> is the annual spoof on the Fiesta Coronation where the famous and political are lampooned in on-stage skits.</span></p> Thu, 24 Apr 2014 18:41:03 +0000 Joey Palacios 30594 at http://tpr.org Cornyation 2014: The Court Of Festive Fetes & Frivolous Faux Pas HIV/AIDS Charities Get $150,000 Boost From This Year's Cornyation http://tpr.org/post/hivaids-charities-get-150000-boost-years-cornyation <p>Cornyation, the annual spoof of San Antonio during Fiesta, generates money for AIDS- and HIV-based charities and this year more than $150,000 was returned to the community as a result of the three-night show.</p><p>Though the show is not necessarily exclusive to the gay community, HIV and AIDS issues tend to resonate within that group.</p> Thu, 27 Jun 2013 20:12:51 +0000 Joey Palacios 13881 at http://tpr.org HIV/AIDS Charities Get $150,000 Boost From This Year's Cornyation Cornyation: Fiesta's Lewd, Crude And Rude Celebration Of The Offbeat http://tpr.org/post/cornyation-fiestas-lewd-crude-and-rude-celebration-offbeat <p>For three days the traditional Fiesta is turned upside down as an event known as Cornyation rips apart political correctness and turns it into a stage act dramatizing current events.</p><p>Cornyation may be lewd, but the party with the purpose is left intact, the spoof on the Fiesta Coronation takes place April 23-25 at the Empire Theater.</p><p>This year there are about 12 Cornyation skits, and each one pokes fun at something different: Childhood obesity, the nearly retired Twinkie, Gov. Rick Perry and sonograms, the NRA, a pensioned Pope, and even Manti Te'o.</p> Thu, 25 Apr 2013 21:04:37 +0000 Joey Palacios 10310 at http://tpr.org Cornyation: Fiesta's Lewd, Crude And Rude Celebration Of The Offbeat
