Staged reading of THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE 

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the tweens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

13+ recommended for content. Doors open one hour before staged reading starts.

Pioneers in the use of cello as the sole instrument within a rock band, Rasputina has been inspiring young string players to commit a number of musical sins since 1996.  The group's concept was written as a manifesto, and manifested accordingly by directress Melora Creager as a wily subterfuge for a plot to open audiences to adventure.  The funny, the sad, the heavy, the tender -- it can all exist together.

Presented by The Not Ready for Retirement Players

The Not Ready for Retirement Players are proud to present their third production in The Studio at the Hult, “Funny Money,” by Ray Cooney. The play, directed by Chris Pinto, is a wonderful farce in which the main character, Henry Perkins, has mistakenly picked up the wrong briefcase on the subway. He discovers that instead of his scarf and gloves being in his briefcase, there is a million dollars in British pounds. He immediately goes to a pub to count the money in the men’s bathroom, which makes him late for his birthday party and draws the attention of a police officer who thinks Henry is in the bathroom to solicit men. His wife Jean is frantic, preparing a birthday surprise which includes dinner with their close friends, Vic and Betty Johnson. When Henry doesn’t arrive home at his normal time, Jean starts to drink. The hilarity ensues when Henry comes home and announces they are immediately emigrating to Barcelona, which is a complete surprise to everyone. However, before they can escape, two police officers show up, in addition to the mobster Mr. Big, who is looking for his briefcase.

This non-stop farce is frenetically funny and provides many laughs as Henry ineptly attempts to extricate himself from this impossible position, leading to increasingly hysterical situations. The cast includes well-known Eugene actors Dan Pegoda, Bill Campbell, Paul Rhoden, Scott Machado, Melanie Moser, Chris Pinto, Chris McVay, and newcomer Janna Slack. This cast is sure to delight with their comical flair and superb timing, and this fast-paced whirlwind will not disappoint as it leaves you in stitches.

Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, perform with a well-honed and solid power – always in the groove from their years of experience and mutual inspiration. Started as a side project during Jefferson Airplane days, the constant, the very definition of Hot Tuna, has always been Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady. The two boyhood pals have never wavered in one of the most enduring friendships in Rock history.

From their days playing together as teenagers in the Washington, DC area, through years of inventive Psylodelic rock in San Francisco (1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees), to their current acoustic and electric blues sound, no one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of Hot Tuna. At the 2016 Grammys, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady were honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards.

“Jorma Kaukonen is a force in American music, equally adept at fingerpicked acoustic folk and blues as he is at wailing on an electric.” – Acoustic Guitar
Guitarist and vocalist, Jorma Kaukonen is a highly respected interpreter of roots music, blues, Americana, and popular rock-and-roll. Jorma’s repertoire goes far beyond psychedelic rock; he is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in music. Jorma tours the world bringing his unique styling to old blues while writing new songs of weight and dimension.

“Jack Casady is virtually unparalleled–and yet he has one of the most truly unique electric-bass voices in rock...he can melt into a supportive role but when opportunity knocks, he bursts forth with creative lines–both simple and ornate–that are unlike any you’ve heard” – Premier Guitar
One of the most unique innovators in the sixty-year history of the bass guitar, Jack Casady made his sweeping melodic mark helping to create the “San Francisco Sound” with legendary rock group Jefferson Airplane. Jack went on to track with Jimi Hendrix, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Warren Zevon, members of the Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker, and Gov’t Mule. Casady, regarded as one of rock's greatest bassists, is certainly one of its most original.

Since they left Mexico for Ireland in 1999, Rodrigo y Gabriela have established themselves as one of the most popular acoustic instrumental bands in the world. They have sold in excess of 1.5 million albums worldwide, and have sold out venues like the Hollywood Bowl, the Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Le Zenith in Paris on numerous occasions.

Their film work includes the soundtracks to ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ and ‘Puss In Boots’, and they have collaborated onstage and on record with artists as diverse as Robert Trujillo (Metallica), Al Di Meola, Zack De La Rocha (Rage Against The Machine) and Anoushka Shankar. In 2010 Rodrigo y Gabriela played at The White House in Washington for President Obama.

From humble beginnings as buskers on Dublin’s Grafton Street, endless touring and a great word of mouth buzz carried the band forward until their international break out with the release of their self-titled 2006 album, which spawned the hits ‘Tamacun’, ‘Diablo Rojo’ and their cover of ‘Stairway To Heaven’. The duo appeared on Jools Holland, BBC TV’s Glastonbury coverage, plus Letterman and Jay Leno in America. “11:11” followed in 2009, and the band went to Cuba in 2012 to record with local musicians for “Area 52”.

The band’s last studio album release was 2014’s “9 Dead Alive”. In 2016 alone, they performed in 25 countries around the world, including their debut tour of South America. 2017 saw the duo celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their breakout self-titled album with a deluxe re-issue and extensive world tour during which they performed the album in full each night. They are currently writing and recording a new studio album.

Their follow up single “Safari Song” also went to #1 at U.S. Rock Radio and a record-setting 16 straight weeks at #1 at Canadian radio. Rolling Stone singled the band out as one of “10 New Artists You Need to Know,” Loudwire readers voted them “Best New Artist,” and Entertainment Weekly named them one of the “8 artists who will rule 2018.”

And, Sir Elton John, a fan of the band, personally asked them to perform at his annual Academy Awards viewing party set for early March, having said,  “It’s the best rock and roll I’ve heard in twenty f**king years!”

Greta Van Fleet’s shared message with their music is to spread “peace, love and unity,” and their collective goal in terms of their live shows is to have people "walk out of the show feeling invigorated, energized, exhilarated, and to take that feeling out into the world.”  The band will release its debut album later this year.

John Prine needed to get into his comfort zone to finish a new album, so his wife reserved a room at the Omni Hotel in Nashville for a week. After nearly 50 years on the road, hotel rooms are a familiar enough sight. Following two bellmen to his suite, Prine settled in with four guitars and 10 boxes of legal pads to complete the album that would become The Tree of Forgiveness.

”I said, ‘If anybody sees me checking into the Omni, they’ll figure Fiona and I are on the outs,” Prine recounts with a sly laugh. “I grabbed my stuff just as fast as I could. She knows that after being on the road so many years, I function better in a hotel, so that’s what I did. I ordered room service and worked and watched my quiz shows. No pressure. This way, if I wanted to write at 3 in the morning, or 3 in the afternoon, I could. I’d go out to the swimming pool and go eat at the steakhouse. It worked out because by the end of the week, I was ready to go into the studio.”

The highly-anticipated album, The Tree of Forgiveness, is Prine’s first collection of new material since 2005’s Grammy-winning Fair and Square. Rather than going out on a limb, Prine cultivated the themes that have brought international acclaim since the 1970s. For example, he can take a topic like loneliness and make it funny (“Knockin’ on Your Screen Door”) or heartbreaking (“Summers End”). Perfectly aligned with his quirkiest songs, “The Lonesome Friends of Science” makes its point through the characters he calls “those bastards in the white lab coats who experiment with mountain goats,” as well as the discredited planet Pluto and the towering Vulcan statue in Birmingham, Alabama.

Prine teamed with Grammy-winning producer Dave Cobb to record in Nashville’s historic Studio A, enlisting friends like Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, and Amanda Shires to sing along. The songs are new, although some had waited to be finished for decades, like a co-write with Phil Spector called “God Only Knows.” Another incomplete song, “I Have Met My Love Today,” now celebrates the unexpected spark that leads to lifelong romance -- with a dash of youthful innocence. The musical arrangements may be simpler than on past efforts, yet his unique ability to distill complex emotions into everyday language remains fully intact.

As he’s done for years, Prine found inspiration in writing sessions with close friends like Roger Cook, Pat McLaughlin and Keith Sykes. “Egg and Daughter Nite, Lincoln, Nebraska, 1967 (Crazy Bone)” is a lighthearted look at a bygone era, while “Caravan of Fools” (written with McLaughlin and The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach) is a contemporary meditation on the weaknesses of powerful people. The poignant “No Ordinary Blue” wraps up a trilogy that encompasses 1991’s “You Got Gold” and 2005’s “Long Monday.”

The album’s title is nestled in the final song, “When I Get to Heaven,” which brings a healthy dose of levity to what might have been a grave situation. Prine revealed in 2013 that an operable form of cancer had been found on his lung. Fortunately an operation proved successful. The diagnosis followed a 1998 surgery for neck cancer, which made him give up smoking for good.

“That was 20 years ago and I still miss cigarettes,” he admits. “If somebody lights up, I’ll go stand next to them after they fire up so I can get that initial blast. So I’d written this chorus about having my favorite cocktail and having a cigarette that’s nine miles long. I kept thinking, ‘Where the hell can I do that?’ The only place I can get away with that it is in Heaven because there’s no cancer there. So, the chorus dictated the setting of the song. I made up the verses around that.”

The Tree of Forgiveness is a family affair, too. (That’s Prine’s grandson giggling on the final track.) Following the 2015 death of business partner and manager Al Bunetta, Fiona Whelan Prine took on a management role. Their son Jody Whelan leads Oh Boy Records, which launched in 1981. As Nashville’s longest-operating indie label, Oh Boy expanded into book publishing in 2017 with Prine’s Beyond Words, which is an enchanting compilation of impeccable lyrics, guitar charts, vintage photos, and personal anecdotes from across his singular career.

Back in 1970, Prine was playing at the Chicago folk club The Fifth Peg when the young journalist Roger Ebert dropped in for a set. At the time, Prine was a 23-year-old mailman who had been singing his original songs every Thursday night for about two months. Ebert wrote a glowing review for the Chicago Sun-Times, essentially launching Prine’s music career. Kris Kristofferson became one of his earliest advocates; their friendship has lasted decades and they have toured together extensively over the years. In turn, Prine has invited a new generation of songwriters, such as Jason Isbell and Margo Price, to open his concerts. His 2018 tour schedule includes select dates with Sturgill Simpson.

Prine still remembers the first three songs he performed on any stage: “Sam Stone,” “Hello in There,” and “Paradise.” With humility, he recalls, “I sang those three songs and people just sat there and looked at me. I thought, ‘Wow, those are really bad.’ They wouldn’t even applaud.”

Of course, the opposite is true today. Those three songs – as well as “In Spite of Ourselves,” “Lake Marie,” “Fish and Whistle,” and so many others – are Prine signatures. His songs have been recorded by iconic singers like Johnny Cash (“Sam Stone”), Bette Midler (“Hello in There”) and Bonnie Raitt (“Angel from Montgomery”). He’s an uncredited co-writer on the now-classic “You Never Even Call Me by My Name” and his songs have been cut by country stars like Zac Brown Band (“All the Best”), Miranda Lambert (“That’s the Way the World Goes Round”) and George Strait (“I Just Want to Dance with You”). A gem from The Tree of Forgiveness, “Boundless Love” is also ripe for the picking.

Prine won his first Grammy for the 1991 album, The Missing Years, and he joined the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003. The Grammy Hall of Fame inducted his 1971 self-titled debut album in 2014. Two years later he accepted the PEN New England’s Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award. At the age of 70, he was named Artist of the Year by the Americana Music Association in 2017. Naturally, The Tree of Forgiveness is rooted in that same observant songwriting that he’s crafted throughout his career.

“I kept saying when I was doing this album, it’s going to be my last one,” Prine admits with a grin. “But if things go really good with it, I can’t see why I wouldn’t do something else.”

Gabriel Royal got his start as a busker on the New York City subway, but the Oklahoma-born musician has emerged as trailblazing talent with inimitable style and enviable range. He’s played at NYC’s top performing venues, including Poisson Rouge and Blue Note Jazz Club; played to sold-out crowds in countries around the world; and collaborated with some of the industry’s most in-demand names, including the Beyoncé-endorsed music video director Blake Farber. Known for his soaring vocals, hum-along melodies, and lush arrangements, Royal, a classically trained musician, is among a select number of artists combining cello and voice. And if his sophomore effort, Miss Once in a Blue Moon is any indication, it’s a marriage that not only works— it sings.

Raised on a jazzy diet of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Herbie Hancock, Royal, who first got serious about music as a player in his high school orchestra, is no stranger to improvisation. As a teenager, he taught himself piano and the drums, and supplemented his orchestral training with basement jam sessions and stints in extracurricular bands.

Hannibal Buress is a mildly popular comedian, writer, podcast host and actor who is a favorite of fans and critics on big and small screens alike. The New York Times called him one of the most “supremely gifted and respected” comics around and the FADER said subscribing to his podcast, Handsome Rambler, is a must. He is also a cast member on Comedy Central’s hit series Broad City, as well as the former co-host of Adult Swim’s The Eric Andre Show.

Buress is a favorite on the late night circuit, recently appearing with Dave Chappelle, Chance The Rapper, Chris Rock, Nas and Ms Lauryn Hill, and has written for NBC’s Saturday Night Live as well as 30 Rock. With his successful podcast Handsome Rambler, Buress plays host to an eclectic mix of guests, from rappers Vic Mensa, to fellow comedians The Lucas Brothers. Since his role in the comedy feature Daddy’s Home alongside Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, Buress has appeared on various big screens for Sony and Marvel in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the Baywatch revival for Paramount studios. Hannibal also lent his voice to the animated films The Secret Life of Pets and Angry Birds. Buress recently wrapped filming on feature film, TAG, staring alongside Jan Hamm, Rashida Jones, and Isla Fisher. He has also joined the cast for Universal’s upcoming comedy Blockers directed by Kay Cannon.

Both comedies are set for 2018 releases. His third hour standup special Comedy Camisado is currently streaming on Netflix.

Inspired by her creative work with ubiquitous plastic bags, artist Dianna Cohen co-founded of the Plastic Pollution Coalition, a group that addresses the pervasive problem of plastic pollution. She writes: "Having worked with the plastic bag as my primary material for the past fifteen years, all of the obvious references to recycling, first-world culture, class, high and low art give way to an almost formal process which reflects the unique flexibility of the medium."

With the Plastic Pollution Coalition, Cohen helps to raise awareness of ocean waste -- the majority of which is nondegradable plastic -- and everyday strategies to cut down the amount of plastic we use and throw away.

Estas Tonne’s upcoming tour reaches followers of bold guitar music and unique art and culture, as well as spiritual well-being. 

Through his music, Estas Tonne invites people to close their eyes, open their hearts and dive into a sacred space where one can experience music in the purest form. Estas Tonne’s “Song of the Golden Dragon” has surpassed 40 million views on YouTube. As a modern-day Troubadour, he travels to countless places and finds himself in several cultural references without identifying himself with a single nation or country, rather with the cultural richness of the world.  His music is therefore a reflection of a classical structure, with the technique of Flamenco, Gypsy roots, and characteristics of Latin & electronic soundscapes.

Escape with us: As You Like It: A Wild West Ballet is Ballet Fantastique’s indomitable spin on one of Shakespeare’s sweetest romantic comedies, most recently performed by the company to critical acclaim in San Benedetto, Italy. Choreographer-producers Donna Marisa and Hannah Bontrager open their ballet with a sepia silent film to set up our backstory, the banjo-playing character of Touchstone (brilliant actor-musician Adam Goldthwaite) narrates in Shakespearean verse—with a Western twang—and live honkytonk saloon piano (with hits from American composers including Gershwin, Copland, and Kay) sets the score. Fusing the formality of classical ballet with the rambunctious candor and color of the American West, Ballet Fantastique spins Shakespeare’s tale of lovers in disguise, troubadours in trouble, and clever Rosie’s brave escape to a land of possibility, where Sheriff Frederick’s menace gives way to hope, re-invention, poetry, and love.

Ballet Fantastique’s As You Like It: A Wild West Ballet will steal your heart and lift your spirits. This is ballet and Shakespeare like you’ve never seen it before.

Star Dust is an “utterly transfixing” tribute to the life and music of David Bowie, full of glitter and glam. Complexions Contemporary Ballet makes it “sensationally, jaw-droppingly clear that we live in the age of the super-dancer, at a time when technical virtuosity is being redefined as an expressive state.”- Dance Magazine

Complexions was founded in 1994 by Master Choreographer Dwight Rhoden and the legendary Desmond Richardson with a singular approach to reinventing dance through a groundbreaking mix of methods, styles and cultures. Today, Complexions represents one of the most recognized and respected performing arts brands in the World.  Having presented an entirely new and exciting vision of human movement on 5-continents, over 20-countries, to over 20-million television viewers and to well over 300,000 people in live audiences, Complexions is poised to continue its mission of bring unity to the world one dance at a time.

Complexions has received numerous awards including The New York Times Critics’ Choice Award. It has appeared throughout the US, including the Joyce Theater/NY, Lincoln Center/NY, Brooklyn Academy of Music/NY, Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts/New Orleans, Paramount Theatre/Seattle, The Music Center/Los Angeles, Winspear Opera House/Dallas, Cutler Majestic Theater/Boston, New Victory Theater/NY, and Music Hall/Detroit, The Bolshoi Theater, The Kremlin, The Mikhailovsky Theater, Melbourne Arts Center, and will make it's debut at the Kennedy Center in 2017, as a part of Ballet Across America.

The Company has appeared at major European dance festivals including Italy’s Festival of Dance ,the Isle De Dance Festival in Paris, the Maison De La Dance Festival in Lyon, the Holland Dance Festival, Steps International Dance Festival in Switzerland, Łódź Biennale, Warsaw Ballet Festival, Kraków Spring Ballet Festival, the Dance Festival of Canary Islands/Spain, and the Festival des Arts de Saint-Sauveur/Canada.  In addition Complexions has toured extensively throughout the Baltic Regions, Korea, Brazil, Japan, Egypt, Israel, Russia, New Zealand, Bermuda, Serbia, Jamaica, and Australia.

The company’s foremost innovation is that dance should be about removing boundaries, not reinforcing them. Whether it be the limiting traditions of a single style, period, venue, or culture, Complexions transcends them all, creating an open, continually evolving form of dance that reflects the movement of our world—and all its constituent cultures—as an interrelated whole.

In 2006, Complexions held their first Summer Intensive program, serving 80 students in its first year. The program has grown to multiple cities and serves over up to 600 students annually. Since 2009, a Winter Intensive was added to the roster, serving an additional 400 students, and CCB added its Pre- Professional Program in 2016.  Complexions’ artistic directors and company members teach master classes throughout the world, sharing the Complexions technique with dancers of all levels. 

Together, Rhoden and Richardson have created in Complexions an institution that embodies its historical moment, a sanctuary where those passionate about dance can celebrate its past while simultaneously building its future. In the 23 years since its inception, the company has born witness to a world that is becoming more fluid, more changeable, and more culturally interconnected than ever before—in other words, a world that is becoming more and more like Complexions itself.

TDM3’s travels and travails serve as inspiration for their fourth album and their New West Records debut, I’m a Stranger Here, produced by Buddy Miller and recorded at Dan Auerbach’s (Black Keys) Easy Eye Sound in Nashville.

With upright bassist Lucia Turino and guitarist Cooper McBean, Bernhard crafted a dozen tunes, part road songs, part heartbreak songs and part barnburners. While most bands are propelled from behind by a drummer, TDM3 builds exuberant rhythms from the inside out, wrapping finger-picked strings and upsurging harmonies around chugging acoustic guitar and bass, plying an ever-growing audience onto its feet to jump, shake and waltz.

There’s no resting on your laurels for Public Television phenomenon Celtic Thunder! The multi-platinum Irish group disembarked from its third Celtic Thunder Cruise in November and completed a US Symphony Tour in December, all the while making preparations for the all new CELTIC THUNDER X Deluxe Double CD, Deluxe Double DVD packages, to be released on March 2, 2018.  The releases celebrate the group’s 10th Anniversary, and the Celtic Thunder X tour of 75 cities across the US and Canada will begin in the fall of 2018.  

Backed by the amazing Celtic Thunder Band, the singers (Damian McGinty, Ryan Kelly, Michael O’Dwyer, Emmet Cahill & Neil Byrne) deliver new ensemble numbers including “Sons of Light”, “Toora, Loora, Lay”, “The Wild Rover”, “Right all right”, and “Castle on the Hill”followed in the second act by nostalgic fun songs like “Celebration”, “I’m a Believer”, “Seasons in the Sun” and “Rise Again”.  No Celtic Thunder show would be complete without an encore of their rousing anthem “Ireland’s Call”, the only song in CELTIC THUNDER X that isn’t a new song but which never fails to bring the audience to its feet.

"We had a blast making CELTIC THUNDER X. The music choices were carefully selected to suit each member’s personality and gave us something we could really dig our teeth into. The musical arrangements, the orchestra and the band are all great, and they really helped to create our best show to date. We love singing songs that are a perfect mix of traditional and contemporary Irish Songs, along with the fun we have performing hit songs that are known worldwide." –Damian, Michael, Emmet, Ryan & Neil, Celtic Thunder

Gad Elmaleh is one of the biggest and most recognizable comedic talents in the world, with a number of exciting projects in the works. Gad’s first English- language special, Gad Elmaleh: American Dream, is now available on Netflix. Filmed at The Town Hall in New York City, Gad throws his audience into hysterics as he recalls his experiences moving from Paris to New York, struggling to flirt with women in New York clubs, and how he wants to visit the Paris that Americans always talk about, but doesn’t really exist.

On stage, Gad continues to cement himself as one of the most widely known and beloved standup comedians working today. In January 2017, he released his latest comedy special Gad Gone Wild. The Netflix Original showcased Gad’s impressive multi-lingual ability, as the material was performed in a mix of English and French.

Since his move to the United States, Gad has quickly grown from being France’s most popular standup comedian to becoming a global comedy sensation. In 2015, he completed a residency at Joe’s Pub in New York City, which saw him performing to sold-out crowds for more than fifty nights. The impressive run led to a multi-city major comedy tour across the United States, culminating in a sold-out show at the world-famous Carnegie Hall in February 2017.

Overseas, Gad made history by selling out the prestigious Olympia theater hall in Paris for seven consecutive weeks, a feat that had never before been accomplished. He followed the sold-out run with another seven sold-out weeks of shows at the Palais des Sports, a 3,800-seat venue also in Paris.

In the film world, Gad starred as “Ben Salaad” in the Steven Spielberg-directed film The Adventures of Tintin and could be seen opposite Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. His additional film work includes Pattaya, The Midnight Orchestra, Capital, Les Seigneurs, Happiness Never Comes Alone, Jack and Jill, La Rafle, Coco, and more. Gad has also made memorable appearances on a number of American television programs including Conan, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Daily Show, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, and more.

Gad was born in Casablanca, Morocco and speaks four languages: Arabic, French, English, and Hebrew. He currently splits his time between New York and Los Angeles.

A holiday mash-up for the entire family, The Hip Hop Nutcracker, a contemporary re-imagination of Tchaikovsky’s timeless music, sets out on a third national tour following the success of two previous sold-out tours.

The Hip Hop Nutcracker is an evening-length production performed by a supercharged cast of a dozen all-star dancers, DJ and violinist. Through the spells cast by the mysterious Drosselmeyer, Maria-Clara and her Nutcracker prince, travel back in time to the moment when her parents first meet in a nightclub. Digital scenery transforms E.T.A. Hoffmann’s story of sugarplums into 1980s Brooklyn. The Hip Hop Nutcracker celebrates love, community and the magic of New Year’s Eve.

The Hip Hop Nutcracker is directed and choreographed by Jennifer Weber, artistic director of the Brooklyn based theatrical hip-hop dance company Decadancetheatre. It was adapted to contemporary New York City by Mike Fitelson, executive director of United Palace of Cultural Arts (UPCA) and includes hip-hop interludes remixed and reimagined by DJ Boo as well as an on-stage electric violinist.
