Fun For All Ages

February 11th (8pm) – “The Newlywed Game Live” returns to Liberty for what is always a fun night. Liberty will choose four couples to compete against each other in a series of revealing question rounds to determine how well the spouses know or do not know each other. The show debuted on TV in 1966 and became famous for some of the arguments and answers that couples had. Tickets are $15.

March 4th (10am) – The Magik Theater presents “The Three Little Pigs” on stage. He’ll huff, and he’ll puff, and he’ll blow you away. This is one serious wolf, looking for one serious meal, and three little pigs sound delectable. All he has to do is get into their little houses, one made of straw, one made of sticks, and one made of bricks. This is best for kids ages 3-10. Tickets are $10-15.

March 25th (8pm) – “Four Funny Females” will be on stage. “Four Funny Females,” aka the”Ultimate Girls Night Out,” features stand-up comedians Linda Stogner (2014 Winner, “Funniest Comic in Texas”) Jan Norton, Sherry Belle, and Laura Bartlett. These four ladies will have the audience in stitches! Lauded the “Fastest Rising (Comedy) Franchise by Theatre Jones, (2013 End of Comedy Review), and 2011 and 2014 “Best Theater Group” Dallas A-List, the “Four Funny Females” is a 90-minute clean (but plenty of hilarious innuendo) stand-up comedy show! Tickets are $18.



March 11th (8pm) – Kathy Mattea “Acoustic Living Room” – Since 1983 Kathy Mattea has recorded 17 albums and has charted more than thirty singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts. This total includes the number one hits: “Goin’ Gone,” “Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses,” “Where’ve You Been” and more.

Sunday, April 23rd (7pm) – Terence Blanchard and the E Collective – Liberty Hall presents Terence Blanchard and the E Collective. Blanchard is an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer, arranger, and film score composer. Blanchard emerged on the scene in 1980 with the Lionel Hampton Orchestra and then shortly thereafter with Art Blakey and the Jazz messengers. He is known as a straight-ahead artist in the hard bop tradition, but has recently developed an African-fusion style of playing that makes him unique from other trumpeters. It is as a film composer that Blanchard reaches his widest audience. His trumpet can be heard on nearly fifty film scores; more than forty bear his compositional style, such as; Mo’ Better Blues, Malcolm X, Jungle Fever, Cadillac Records and  Barbershop, . He has won multiple Grammy Awards and as of August 2011, he was named the artistic director of the Henry Mancini Institute at the University of Miami Frost School of Music and in the fall of 2015 he was named a visiting scholar in jazz composition at Berklee College of Music. It is an honor to have him in East Texas. Tickets are $25-$38.

Saturday, April 29th (8pm) – Bob Schneider and Mitch Watkins – Picture this, two great Austin native musicians coming together to perform live. The musical talents of Bob Schneider and Mitch Watkins will soon be joined for the first time in Tyler, TX. The mix between Schneider’s funk, country and folk music and Watkins’ jazz guitarist streaks is sure to be a great time. 1999 was the start of Schneider’s solo career and Watkins picked up the guitar at the age of 13. Their musical journeys have taken them down many stylistic pathways, and to the far corners of the globe. These two great Austin musicians have long music careers and they aren’t stopping anytime soon. Tickets are 18-$33.

VIP Box Seats are available for most performances as well as sponsorship opportunities.
