Lone Star Ballet to Present 'Remember the Alamo'

A new show that tells the story of one of the most important events in Texas history will soon be on the stage in Amarillo.

On January 25th, “Remember the Alamo” will debut at the Globe News Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Amarillo. The show was written by local artist King Hill, and will feature dancers, singers, and actors telling the story of the historic Alamo.

Hill says the show will entertain audiences, but also provide important information on this historical place.

“This is good history, plus good entertainment,” Hill says.

Staying true to what he calls his “lifelong passion,” Hill is excited to bring the Alamo story to life in this special one-night-only performance for the public. Victor Leal, Lilia Escajeda, Ed Montana, and other well-known locals will be taking on the task of portraying characters in this new show.

The show will only be performed for the public on January 25th in Amarillo. Student shows have sold out, but a free show is also being planned on February 1st at the M.K. Brown Auditorium in Pampa.

Tickets for the Amarillo show are available through
