Lancaster ISD Fine Arts Students ‘Drop a Mix Tape’ For Annual Production at the Majestic Theatre

Lancaster, TX/Lancaster ISD – Talent runs deep in Lancaster ISD, and throughout the year, students showcase their gifts through academic and athletic competitions, showcases and programs. And, every spring, district-wide, students unite for the ultimate end-of-year fine arts production at the Majestic Theatre located at 1925 Elm Street in downtown Dallas.

This year’s production is called Mixtape: Art is L.I.F.E. (Lancaster Integrating Fine Arts Education), and, for one night only, Thursday, May 18, 2017, at 7 PM, students of Lancaster ISD will perform for the public at the Majestic Theater.

“Our students are excited to drop this Mixtape,” District Fine Arts Director Garry Williams said. “Back in our day, a mix tape meant something else, but for our students, it’s how they release their creativity.”

Williams said that the show will celebrate the soundtrack of life and art with original works created and performed by Lancaster ISD students in grade 3rd through 12th.

“We’re taking the audience on a trip down memory lane with a diverse mix of musical genres and cultural staples,” he said. “Talent from throughout the district will be featured in this multi-disciplinary show.”

This is the district’s 11th year to put on a comprehensive production such as this one and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mike McFarland said that he looks forward to it each year.

“It is always inspiring to see people working in their passion and I am always proud to see our students perform—whether in the classroom, on the field, court or at center stage,” he said. “Every year, our students and staff spend countless hours putting together an entertaining, top-notch showcase of young talent. This annual district-wide Fine Arts performance has truly become a celebrated event that unites our community.”

Tickets are on sale now for $10 at Lancaster High School located at 200 E. Wintergreen Road and can also be purchased at the Majestic Theatre on May 18, 2017. For more information, contact the high school campus at 972-218-1800.
