Lone Star Ballet Presents Encore of "Remember the Alamo" on Wednesday Night in Amarillo

Thanks to Catherine Meck of Window on a Wider World (WOWW)for visiting HPPR Studios in Amarillo to discuss the Lone Star Ballet's one-night-only performance, as well as her work as a community connecter in the regional arts. Written by King Hill, the piece combines dance, theatre, and Texas history.

Wednesday night, Amarillo-area dance fans can check out an encore performance of "Remember the Alamo," written by King Hill. We had a chance to chat with Catherine Meck of Window on a Wider World (WOWW) about the production, her organization's commitment to the arts in the Texas Panhandle, and what it's been like keeping things rolling through the pandemic.

The Lone Star Ballet’s Wednesday night performance begins at 7:30p CT at the Globe-News Center of Performing Arts (500 S. Buchanan, Amarillo). It’s the only show open to the public, so get your tickets here. There will also be two shows for area students in the morning and afternoon on Wednesday. Also, they’ll be taking the show to Pampa, TX for a show on March 10th at the MK Brown Auditorium.
