Australian playwright Bryan Nason adapts the original Chinese tale, based on the real-life journey of Buddhist monk Xuanzang to India to bring back sacred Buddhist writings back to China, in a way that brings out its humor and fantastical adventures while retaining its focus on the spiritual journey of the main characters. The original story is considered one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature and remains a much beloved story in many Asian countries. Join Sun Wu Kong, the Handsome Monkey King and Great Sage, Equal to Heaven as he and his companions, Pigsy, Sandy, Dragon Horse, and their Buddhist monk master Tripitaka as they fight monsters, demons, and each other on their hilarious and holy journey to India.</p><p>Directed by George Bellah</p><p><br><strong>March 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11</strong> at 7:30 PM<br><strong>March 12</strong> at 2:00 PM<br>McConnell Auditorium<br>Adult $12 – Seniors $10 – Under 18&nbsp; $10 – CWU Student $8<br>Advanced purchase recommended</p><p>Family Friendly</p><h4><strong>To purchase tickets, please <a href="https://apps.vendini.com/ticket-software.html?w=587868a7397984e7c781049aaefc66ec&amp;t=tix&amp;vqitq=0f8fb618-1671-4eb1-bcbe-75f907c74584&amp;vqitp=98719704-900f-4f61-a4ff-e1946708ed91&amp;vqitts=1483642800&amp;vqitc=vendini&amp;vqite=itlwww&amp;vqitrt=Queue&amp;vqith=74d1579d1bd6dc706e4d0bfaf2d81915" target="_blank">select here.&nbsp;</a></strong></h4></br></br></br></br></br>Thursday, January 51483642862Jazz Band Celebration http://www.cwu.edu/ce/jazz-band-celebrationSaturday, March 11Sat, 11 Mar 2017 16:00:00Entertainment,Fine & Performing Arts<p>This concert will feature Jazz Band III, Jazz Band II, and the award-winning Jazz Band I, directed by Chris Bruya.
