Rapid-Fire Tap and High-Spirited Humor…

Feet Don’t Fail Me Now! Rhythmic Circus

Four energetic dancers transform their tap shoes into innovative and captivating instruments of rhythm. Their completely original performance, Feet Don’t Fail Me Now! is spiced with a variety of musical flavors enlivened by an infectious seven-piece band, vocalists, and a very unique, one-man a cappella beat-box sensation.

in the next, the musical genres move from rock to blues, from salsa to funk.

Rhythmic Circus approaches each number with an inventive style of rapid-fire tap and a celebration of sheer joy and energy. Explosive and raucous at one moment, mellow and groovy

After its Lufkin appearance, the company will travel to New York for its Broadway debut at the New Victory Theatre.

Rhythmic Circus has quickly risen from an underground percussive dance phenomenon to a ground-breaking live performance company. The show is a unique music and dance experience which truly appeals to audiences of all ages.

The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra…

A Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald Featuring vocalist Delores King Williams Dubbed “The First Lady of Song”, the legendary Ella Fitzgerald was the most popular female jazz singer in the United States for more than fifty years. She could sing sultry ballads, sweet and up-tempo jazz, and imitate every instrument in the orchestra. During Ella’s lifetime, she won 13 Grammy Awards and sold over 40 million albums. The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra was established by an act of Congress in 1990. This acclaimed 17-piece big band specializes in re-creating classic performances from the past. Whatever it plays must be an authentic re-creation of the original. In this tribute concert, it pulls together original big band arrangements

created for Ella in the 1940s and 1950s from the Smithsonian archives. These arrangements (by superstars Billy May, Count Basie, Billy Strayhorn, and more) have not been heard live by audiences in over 40 years. Featured vocalist Delores King Williams is a native of Baltimore and studied at the Peabody Conservatory of Music. She has performed at the White House and Carnegie Hall, in off-Broadway runs with The Capitol Steps, and in an Australian tour of Porgy and Bess. www.smithsonianjazz.org www.deloreskingwilliams.moonfruit.com

A Fresh and Funny Slice of Americana…

The Wonder Bread Years Starring Pat Hazell The Wonder Bread Years is a humorous and heartwarming salute to baby boomers and pop culture. The show is a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud comedy that gracefully walks the line between stand-up comedy and theatre. It started as a PBS special and quickly morphed into a national tour, now in its twentieth year. Pat Hazell, the writer and sole performer in the show, is a veteran stand-up comedian and playwright, but most significantly -- one of the original writers of Seinfeld. He wrote The Wonder Bread Years about his generation and how it grew up. He makes references to things

you know and remember: the Kellogg’s cereal box you could turn into a bowl, family vacations to nowhere, and baloney and Velveeta sandwiches. Audiences across the country are enjoying a show that not only restores a much-needed sense of wonder, but leaves audiences laughing and savoring the past like never before. Says Pat Hazell, “The Wonder Bread Years is for everyone who remembers a time when Spam was considered actual food. Fortunately, it’s also for everyone who can’t remember Spam as edible, but who appreciates it in a punch line.” www.wonderbreadyears.com

The New Queen of Bluegrass…

Rhonda Vincent & The Rage With over 80 awards to its credit, Rhonda Vincent and The Rage has emerged as the most celebrated band ever in bluegrass, with honors including a “Song of the Year” and a coveted “Entertainer of the Year” award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA). Rhonda received a staggering seven consecutive IBMA “Female Vocalist of the Year” awards (2000-2006). Rhonda Vincent is an impeccably gifted bluegrass singer. An engaging personality — which blends down-home sincerity with big-city style — has put her at the very forefront of bluegrass music’s continuing resurgence.

She is among the most complete and accomplished artists of her generation — in any genre. The Society for Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America designated her its “Entertainer of the Year” for 2002-2011 inclusive – an unrivaled ten-year streak! Rhonda Vincent and The Rage’s music incorporates savvy contemporary touches, while drawing deeply from the haunting mountain soul of classic Bill Monroe-styled bluegrass. Its music knows no boundaries. It is unique, exciting, energized, and powerful. www.rhondavincent.com

Montana Repertory Theatre…

The Miracle Worker by William Gibson

Few stories are as timeless — or reveal the courage and resilience of the human spirit — as The Miracle Worker.  This stirring dramatization of the early life of Helen Keller has been mesmerizing audiences for decades. The Miracle Worker tells the story of young Helen Keller, deaf and blind since infancy, who finds her way into the world of knowledge and understanding with the help of Annie Sullivan, her gifted tutor.  In some of the most turbulent and emotion-packed scenes ever presented on the stage, Helen overcomes rage and confusion to triumph over her physical disabilities. 

With this production, Montana Repertory Theatre continues to explore great American plays which penetrate the core of human experience.  Lufkin audiences have previously seen the company’s touching productions of To Kill a Mockingbird, Bus Stop, and A Trip to Bountiful. Each has brought new vitality and vision to these time-honored theatre pieces. The Miracle Worker is a story of victory over unbelievable odds — accomplished through conviction, perseverance, and love. www.montanarep.org

Electrifying Broadway Performer…

Mandy Patinkin: Dress Casual With Paul Ford on Piano

To some, Mandy Patinkin is the Tony Award®winning revolutionary from Evita who grew into a bone fide Broadway star in Sunday in the Park with George. To others, he’s the Emmy® Award-winning Best Actor for his portrayal of Dr. Jeffrey Geiger in Chicago Hope. And to others still, he will always be the man whose name is Inigo Montoya, the swashbuckling swordsman in The Princess Bride. Mandy recently starred in the CBS series Criminal Minds and returns to TV in the Emmy® and Golden Globe Award-winning Showtime Original Series, Homeland, as CIA Division Chief Saul Berenson.

Whichever role you know him for, Mandy Patinkin’s favorite is reaching out to live audiences with the power and the passion of popular song. He belongs to the special breed of singer who doesn’t merely dramatize songs, but incorporates them into his very being. His interpretations of popular standards, superbly accompanied by Paul Ford at the piano, come straight from the heart, mesmerizing audiences from coast to coast. From Rodgers and Hammerstein to Stephen Sondheim, from Harry Chapin to Irving Berlin and Cole Porter. www.mandypatinkin.org

2013-2014 schooltime series

Performing Arts Experiences for Students Which Expand and Enhance Learning… Each season, the Arts Alliance provides a diversity of performing arts experiences for students in grades Pre-K through 12. Professional artists (actors, singers, musicians, and dancers) – from around the world – travel to Lufkin to perform during the school day for students and their teachers. Each show has connections to school curricula and offers a unique opportunity for teachers to integrate the arts into their daily lesson planning and individual teaching styles. Teacher study guides are available for most performances. The shows are imaginatively conceived, artistically produced, and provide relevant, entertaining, and enriching experiences for students. In 2013-14, three outstanding productions will come to the Temple Theater stage: Alice in Wonderland (Théâtre Tout à Trac/Montreal), Stuart Little (Dallas Children’s Theatre), and The Miracle Worker (Montana Repertory Theatre). Each show is age-specific and selected by the Arts Alliance to encourage the power of imagination, creative thinking, and self-expression.

The Schooltime Series is underwritten by funds generously provided by the T.L.L. Temple Foundation. Additional sponsorship support from Woodland Heights Medical Center

He learns to survive in his super-sized world of humans and discovers the true meaning of family, loyalty, and friendship. A charming story which proves that great things can come in small packages.
