Join Arts for All & CJ Jones for The Living Cartoon: Hot Wired

CJ Jones is coming to Tucson, and you’re invited to join him for fun and excitement in performances and workshops. Arts for All will present this internationally loved performer in two performances on Friday, November 21, 2003. There will be a Student Matinee at 10:00 am and a Family Show at 7:00 pm. Both performances will be at Pima Community College Center for the Arts, 2202 West Anklam Road in Tucson. CJ is available for workshops with your school or group and will be giving a mixed ability workshop for actors young and old at Arts for All. Workshops will cover improvisation, use of facial expression and other nonverbal skills, concentration, rhythm, theater games and more. The mixed ability workshop will take place on Saturday, November 22 and is open to all.

CJ is a comedian, actor, producer, director, motivational speaker, educator and advocate. He’s performed on Broadway, traveled the world and recently on appeared on TV shows as diverse as “Cold Case” and “Frasier.” He’s bringing his one-man show, “The Living Cartoon: Hot Wired” to Tucson for just one day. The show is an inspiring and hilarious blend of stand-up comedy, mime, storytelling, sign song and audience participation. Every member of the audience will find connections with CJ’s inimitable humor, and his message shines through. Having experienced what he calls the “double whammy” of being an actor who is both deaf and black, CJ vigorously spreads the message that being different does not mean being less worthwhile.

Tickets for the performances are only $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Group rates are available. Please get your tickets in advance for this sure-to-be-sold-out shows.
