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!
