Nov 7, 2019

The Arizona Western College Fine Arts Department is teaming up to present music, theater, and art to the community during The Radio Active Variety Show.

This year’s annual fundraiser for scholarships will include scenes from Dickens’ 'A Christmas Carol' and also feature vocal and band music. In addition to the show, the Art Department will be sharing through creative demonstrations, Graphic Arts will be taking photos, and a silent auction will also be held.

“Guests will have an opportunity to see and hear the progress that our students are achieving,” said Professor of Choral and Vocal Music Deltrina Grimes. “They will also have an opportunity to hear directly from our scholarship recipients.”

The shows will be held on Saturday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2:30 p.m. at the AWC Theatre, 2020 S. Ave. 8E. Saturday night’s performance will include preshow music provided by the AWC String Ensemble.
