Midwest Theater receives Mid-America Grant for Chavez performance
SCOTTSBLUFF — The Midwest Theater is among a select group of regional presenters to receive a Mid-America Arts Alliance Regional Touring Program grant to support an upcoming performance by Gina Chavez on Oct.11 at 7:30 p.m.
Chavez and her group will also have outreach workshops at local schools and the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center as well as a student matinee performance at the Midwest Theater. The matinee is targeted for fourth- through sixth-graders and schools can submit a registration request by contacting the theater.
Chavez is an Austin, Texas, singer and songwriter who wears her emotions on her sleeve. Her ruminations on identity, love, life, fun and joy along with her voice reflect experiences that take the audience to places where they dare to drop their emotional guards. Her music has been an Alternate Latino favorite for several years.
Todd Stein, M-AAA’s interim chief executive officer said, “The Midwest Theater is to be commended for their commitment to serving their community with this distinctive event. Audiences in western Nebraska will have the opportunity to see the exciting work of Gina Chavez, many for the first time. Mid-America Arts Alliance is proud to help support this work and the Midwest Theater.”
Tickets to Chavez’s performance are available at the Midwest Theater office, via phone at 308-632-4311, or online at MidwestTheater.com. Non-member tickets cost $26 and member tickets cost $22.
