Saturday December 8, 7:30 p.m.
Back by popular demand, Tony Award-winning Broadway star Debbie Gravitte is bringing back her All-Star Holiday Show to the Schimmel Theatre. What could be better than singing along with an orchestra, watching Broadway dancers shimmy and shake to A Christmas Carol, or maybe getting the chance to be a part of the show? Past guests have included Oscar and Tony Award-winning composer Harvey Fierstein, Alan Menken, Stephen Schwartz, Broadway fave Rebecca Luker, among others.
Calpulli Mexican Dance Company
Sunday, December 9, 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
After postponing Schimmel dates following the Hurricane, Mexico’s rich cultural history and dance traditions explode on the Schimmel stage as Calpulli Mexican Dance Company brings its celebrated repertoire to NYC. Under the artistic direction of Noemy Hernandez and musical direction of George Saenz, the company of 16 dancers and core of musicians will make their Pace stage debut in a tribute to the heart and soul of Mexico here in New York City. Meticulous costuming, passionate live music, and larger than life surprises will have you mesmerized! Plus, enjoy food, hot chocolate, and a mural created by Pace’s Art Department.
$5 student tickets available for purchase the day of the show after 12:00 p.m. for both shows. $10 staff/faculty tickets are also available. For more info, visit http://schimmel.pace.edu.
