The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess PhotoThrough our partnership with Chico Performances, OLLI members can receive discounted tickets to a screening of The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess in the beautiful Zingg Recital Hall on campus. George Gershwin miraculously melded classical music, popular song, jazz, blues and spirituals in this quintessentially American masterpiece that tells the poignant story of a crippled beggar, the headstrong woman he loves, and the community that sustains them both. The outstanding cast is headed by Eric Owens and Laquita Mitchell in the title roles.

Tickets: Beginning August 14, OLLI members can purchase discounted tickets—$12.50 each!—for you and a guest. There are two ways to purchase:

•    Buy them in-person at the University Box Office at the corner of W. 3rd & Chestnut Streets. Hours are Monday-Friday, 10AM-6PM.
•    Purchase by phone at (530) 898-6333. There is an additional $4 per-transaction service fee.

Be sure to mention you are an OLLI member to the Box Office staff.
