Afro Cuban All Stars!

Via Professor Share:

Hi Professor!

I hope you are doing well! I work downtown at the Broadway Center for the Performing Arts and we have a show coming up next week that might be of interest for you as a fellow Latin American enthusiast. I know that you are teaching a US-Latin American Policy course this semester, and I thought that some students might also be interested. Juan de Marcos and the Afro-Cuban All Stars are coming to the Pantages Theater on Tuesday, February 17 at 7:30. Normally tickets run from $32 - $56 (a bit pricey for students!) but we are working with the Tacoma’s Emergency Food Network on a promotion so that if patrons bring one non-perishable food item, the ticket price drops to $15 a ticket per donation.

I’m not sure what your policy is about sharing event outside of UPS with students, but this is a great way to get off campus for an evening and connect with Tacoma! If you wouldn’t mind either forwarding it to your students or mentioning it in class, I would greatly appreciate it.

Click here for a great article about the Afro-Cuban All Stars from the Weekly Volcano.
The article doesn’t mention the deal for bringing non-perishables, but as long as it is mentioned when getting tickets from the box office, then it shouldn’t be a problem.

The Pantages Theater is located at 9th and Broadway in downtown Tacoma. It is a beautiful theater and definitely worth a visit if you’ve never been! The box office can be reached at 253.579.5890.
