Tickets On Sale October 30th for Lone Star Ballet Show World Premiere

Tickets will soon go on sale for a world premiere show from the Lone Star Ballet.

On October 30th, tickets will go on sale for King Hill's "Lone Star Legends and Love Stories." The ballet will be getting its world premiere at the Globe-News Center for Performing Arts.

As we reported last month, the new ballet by local arts authority King Hill is a tribute to the women who pioneered Texas and the panhandle. Characters included in Hill's ballet will include: Cynthia Ann Parker, Molly Goodnight, Frenchy McCormick, Susanna Dickinson and Emily West.

Vicki McLean, artistic director for the Lone Star Ballet, said that the show is a love story between people and a love story about the state.

"We all know what loving Texas is all about," Vicki McLean said, "This is a love story between people but also with the amazing state we live in."

Tickets for the February 9th debut will be available through the Amarillo Civic Center's official box office,
