ISA to present “Ethnos: Culture Shock”Posted November 07, 2012
The ACU International Students’ Association will present “Ethnos” in Cullen Auditorium on Nov. 9-10. Cultures from around the world will be presented through dance and music performed by both international and American students.
“This year’s skit theme is culture shock,” says Laura McGregor, assistant director of International Student Services and ISA adviser. “The actors will expose various cultural stereotypes in a humorous way. The performers in the group acts have been preparing for weeks, putting in a lot of time, work and energy. In the process, they've developed some amazing relationships with each other, so it should be a great show."
Doors open at 7:00 p.m.; the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $7 individually or $5 per person for groups of 10 or more. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $10 if any seats are remaining. “This annual event is much anticipated on campus. We usually play to a large crowd, and we sold out last year and had to turn people away, so we encourage people to buy their tickets early,” says McGregor.
The event kicks off International Education Week, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education.
