Piney Woods Fine Arts Announces School Time Series

CROCKETT— The Piney Woods Fine Arts Association is excited to announce the School Time Series for the 2012-2013 season. PWFAA is committed to enriching the lives of the students of Houston Co. and East Texas through its educational programs and exposure to the performing arts.

This season’s School Time Series has two events, The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats and New York’s TheatreworksUSA production of Ramona Quimby. Supported in part through grants from the Texas Commission on the Arts and Kinder Morgan, these events are provided at the low cost of only $4.00 per student! We believe education in the fine arts spurs creativity and sparks the imagination in our children.

The Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats will perform three shows on October 29, 2012. This show offers more than a glimpse into the fascinating traditions of the Orient. It consists of sensational Chinese acrobatics, balancing feats, martial arts displays, and much more. Chinese acrobatics demonstrate the achievement of perfection through finding harmony between mind and body, this ancient oriental concept has been formed by centuries of tradition. More information on the Shangri-La Chinese Acrobats can be found at

TheatreworksUSA of New York, NY has been entertaining kids for years with its production of Ramona Quimby, based on the character from celebrated children’s author Beverly Cleary. While intended to tickle the funny bone, the play also incorporates issues that touch on the lives of real families.

Ramona’s life is a mess!  Her older sister Beezus is a pain, her aunt Bea may marry a dork, and her dad just lost his job.  She even thinks her teacher hates her.  Life is no picnic, and growing up isn’t easy.  But with help of her loving and patient family and friends, Ramona faces these challenges—as audiences laugh and cheer her on!  There are two shows of Ramona Quimby on Febraury 22, 2013. This is a wonderful show that will surely educate as well as entertain. For more information on TheatreworksUSA visit their website at
