Cal Poly Arts Announces New 2012-2013 Season

From comedy to world culture, this year's lineup has something for every audience

Cal Poly Arts has announced its exciting new 2012-2013 performing arts season, which will present more than 40 diverse shows at the Performing Arts Center.

Audiences will enjoy several Central Coast premieres, such as The Blue Man Group, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, William Shatner, Eddie Izzard, and Hair, as well as returning favorites, such as The Capitol Steps, Garrison Keillor, The Russian National Orchestra, Elvis Costello, and Wynton Marsalis leading the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra.

“Central Coast residents will notice our fresh new brochure format — big, bold and colorful, much like the touring season we’ve booked!” observed Cal Poly Arts director Steve Lerian.

“Our 42 diverse events offer something for Broadway lovers, classical music buffs, laugh seekers, dance enthusiasts, world culture fans, families and jazz aficionados, as well as for those who enjoy our engaging Speaker Series. Brisk subscription renewals tell me that this is one of our most popular, accessible seasons yet.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
