See You at The Show!
In 1996 a group of visionaries had a dream to
bring a world-class performing arts venue to our
community. Their goal was for families to see quality
entertainment, at an affordable price, and not have
to travel to the larger cities. These leaders, along
with dedicated sponsors and long-time patrons
have paved the way for the incredible arts culture
we enjoy in Angelina County today.
Angelina Arts Alliance’s
home is
the state-of-
the-art, 898- seat Temple Theater
located on the
Angelina College campus. It was built for the college
and community to share in a joint partnership
that benefits everyone, for both educational and
entertainment events. The Performing Arts season
begins in the fall and concludes in the spring with a
Premier Series of 7-8 shows
. The new season is
announced in May and season tickets then become
available for purchase.
Patrons past favorites
include
:
Vince Gill, Kenny Rogers, STOMP, Disney’s
Beauty and the Beast, Hairspray, The Texas Tenors,
Russian National Ballet
and
Glen Campbell
. This
season’s favorites are sure to include
Riverdance 20
Years: The Anniversary Tour
and the National Tour of
the Broadway favorite
Mamma Mia!
Angelina Arts Alliance
believes the arts are a
rich source of learning and emotional development
for the young people in our community and is a large
part of their mission. Through their
Schooltime
Series
, more than 65,000 students K-12 have
experienced a performance at the Temple Theater.
The series is connected to school curriculum, and
seeks to advance the performing arts as a means of
educating, challenging, and inspiring local students.
Special events
commence this season to
celebrate their 15th anniversary —
Mobilizing
Our Community
; an outreach event involving a
collaboration with visual artist and actor Kevin
Reese, with students and community members
creating 15 Mobiles for public display---keep an
eye out for them throughout Lufkin—they are both
beautiful and inspirational! In January,
Frozen
FunDay,
is
FREE
to the public and features the
FROZEN sing-a-long movie
and
The Chipper
Experience; Where Comedy & Magic Collide!
You don’t want to miss this Arts and Entertainment
Festival for the whole family
.
And in February
Black
Violin
brings their genre-busting sounds to Lufkin
Middle School for two Schooltime performances,
and then a public concert for the family to
experience together. It’s violin like you’ve never
heard it before!
Angelina Arts Alliance is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit
organization and supported by local foundations,
