Welcome to our 16th Season!

Sweet sixteen and shouldn’t be missed! That’s our proclamation for Angelina Arts Alliance’s 16th performing arts season. Our first two shows bring something that has never before appeared on the Temple Theater stage; A Grand Illusionist and a full 65-piece symphony orchestra. The first half of the season continues with a Family FunDay that breathes life into aluminum for a unique and exciting experience, some inspiration and insight from an American singer/songwriting icon, and a special Christmas performance by a very colorful country music superstar. 

2017 begins with a second Family FunDay, featuring eye-popping life-like dinosaurs, a great American comedy celebrating its 50th anniversary, a Broadway show that’s sure to get your toes tapping, and the season ends with a musical tribute to the most inspirational music written for the Broadway stage.

We hope to reach more than 10,000 students this coming year, inspiring creativity and learning through our Schooltime and Outreach Series.  These events take place at both The Temple Theater, and various school campuses within the five local school districts. They will feature performances and hands-on artist residencies including music, theater, science, storytelling, playwriting, songwriting, and history.  All possible through partnerships with educational facilities, local businesses, generous foundation grants, and individuals like you

What a privilege it is to share with you the world of performing arts. Whether we laugh, cry, or leap to our feet for a standing ovation, we are creating a one-of-a-kind experience together at each and every performance.  You can go to the movies, watch television, or listen to the radio---but there’s nothing like seeing it LIVE FROM LUFKIN!
