Welcome to our 15th Anniversary Season!
Angelina Arts Alliance had its inaugural season in 2001, with a sold-out performance featuring Marvin Hamlisch--do you remember? This year we kickoff our 15th Anniversary Season of celebration with our 100th Performing Arts Series performance--An Evening With Vince Gill. The season will also include two special events for the entire community. In November we will bring an artist with a big vision to Lufkin for a week. He will be working with students, teachers, and members of the community to create 15 pieces of permanent art to be installed throughout the Lufkin area--It is called Mobilizing Our Community! Check out the website for more information. Then in January, we will have a FREE Family FunDay. Look at the Family FunDay page for all the exciting activities.
The Temple Theater was built to enrich our college and our community, and is still the only state-of-the-art performing arts facility within 80 miles--and we are blessed to have it. Many world-class celebrities, Broadway musicals, ballet/theater companies and art enriched educational programs have graced our stage since 2001. We are so grateful for the wonderful memories we have shared together and look forward to many more!
Mamma Mia…We Lost Lucy!!!!
In the theater world, sometimes a national tour has to make a tough decision and cancel their tour for a variety of reasons. Well, that's what happened with the tour of "I LOVE LUCY LIVE". We hated to lose LUCY”, stated Tracy Pinkerton, Executive Director of the Arts Alliance, “but this cloud has a bright silver lining! We are thrilled to announce that, as a replacement, MAMMA MIA!, one of Broadway’s all-time biggest musicals, will hit the Temple Theater stage May 18th and 19th, 2016!” All efforts to bring this enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship to Lufkin over the last few years have fallen short, so to have the good fortune to present MAMMA MIA! during our 15th anniversary season is very exciting!” Tickets for the Tony Award-winning musical range from $35-$45 (Premium/Box $50).
With a 13 year run on the Broadway stage, MAMMA MIA! will be closing in New York on September 5, 2015. But the good news is the national tour is still going strong and celebrating their 10th anniversary on the road. East Texans who have been asking for this funny tale, spun with the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, finally get their wish. Single tickets for MAMMA MIA! and all 2015-2016 Performing Arts Series shows go on sale Monday, August 3, 2015 at 11:00 a.m.
