Kenny Rogers, Kris Kristofferson, Jaclyn Smith, Yolanda Adams, Lynn Wyatt, Lauren Anderson, and John Paul and Eloise DeJoria. The 5. Texas Film Awards (March 9, austinfilm.org), which honors the state's impressive film legacy, will induct celebrated directors Jeff Nichols and Hector Galan in the Hall of Fame and honor Rising Star Tye Sheridan of Tree of Life and X-Men: Apocalypse fame. And what self-respecting Live Music Capital of the World doesn't have its own award show? 6. The Austin Music Awards (March 12, austinchronicle.com/ ama), by SXSW and The Austin Chronicle, marks its 35th year at a new home—ACL Live—and with music director Charlie Sexton at the helm, you can expect a memorable night, all to benefit the SIMS Foundation. Another philan- thropic fête is 7. Austin Under 40 Awards Gala (April 1, austinunder40.org), an annual black-tie event dedicated to young professionals. Austin welcomes several renowned productions to our stages. Zach Theatre hosts Texas' premiere of Robert Schenkkan's 8. The Great Society (through March 5, zachtheatre.org), which explores President Johnson's ideals and involvement in the Vietnam War. On another biographical note, the Tony Award-winning 9. Beautiful: The Carole King Musical (March 21–26, texasperforming arts.org) showcases King's ascent set to her own beloved songs. Lastly, Ballet Austin presents Stephen Mills's production of Mozart's 10. The Magic Flute (March 31–April 2, balletaustin.org), combining a re-energized score of the classic opera with contemporary, dazzling visuals. . clockwise from top left: Austin Under 40 honors the city's creative and innovative leaders; it's time again for the biennial Texas Medal of Arts, whose past honorees include former First Lady Laura Bush; Big Dog Pyro draws a crowd on Sixth Street during last year's SXSW—it all happens again this March.
