LUFKIN, TX. The Angelina Arts Alliance is thrilled to announce that it has received a grant from The Moody Foundation in the amount of $15,000.
The Moody Foundation grant will support its annual Discovery Series programs beginning in January 2022. The series will offer four family-friendly, educational, and fun programs at a very reduced ticket rate at $6 for children and $11 for adults. These programs offer local families the opportunity to attend programs that are not available anywhere else in the region at an affordable price. Grant funding enables the Angelina Arts Alliance to keep ticket prices very low so that the programs are accessible to more people.
“We are beyond grateful to The Moody Foundation for their generous support of our mission to provide access to the arts for everyone in our community. Our Discovery Series programs deliver fun and educational ways for families to experience live performing arts at an affordable ticket price. We can’t wait to see local families at the Temple Theater beginning in January,” said Jennifer Allen, Executive Director of the Angelina Arts Alliance.
The Discovery Series kicks off on January 23, 2022, at 2pm at the Temple Theater with Popovich Comedy Pet Theater. Followed by Bella Gaia (Beautiful Earth) on March 6, The Underwater Bubble Show on April 3, and Madagascar the Musical on June 12, 2022. All performances are weekend matinees.
