We are excited to announce the 2014 Paradise Valley Community College Fine & Performing Arts Scholarship Fundraiser – Spirit of ’76: A Musical Tribute to the Hits of 1976! Hop into the way-back machine to that centennial year when the Concorde first took flight, the Blues Brothers were born, the Yankees got steamrolled by the Big Red Machine, and AMC tried to entice buyers
with “You only ride like a Pacer if you’re wide like a Pacer.”
It was also the year that Fleetwood Mac, Blue Oyster Cult, Steve Miller Band, Queen, Frampton, Bowie, Hall & Oates, and Kiss shot up the charts, producing iconic classics. These and more will be performed by Paradise Valley Community College’s talented music faculty, special guest vocalists Greg Diarra, Mike G. Murphy and Marissa Lynn and will be support by audio production students in PVCC's commercial music program.
LYSISTRATA by Aristophanes
Directed by Joe Flowers
April 11, 12, 18, 19 at 7:30pm and April 13, 19 at 2:00pm
$12 adults; $10 seniors/staff; $8 students/military; $6 children
The year was 411 B.C. and a civil war had been raging in Greece for over twenty years. For Aristophanes that was long enough to start writing comedies about the war. The story of Lysistrata is simple. Lysistrata is an Athenian woman who figures out a way to end the war with Sparta. She conspires with the women in both city/states and they all agree to withhold sex from their husbands until the men agree to sign a peace treaty. Then, to up the ante even further, the women seize control of the Acropolis, where the Athenian treasury is housed, thus cutting off funding for the war. A bold statement on war given in a timeless comedy.
