Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra Presents: Red Altar

The issue of immigration and migration has been at the forefront of daily news as of late, fueling all kinds of thoughts and controversies.  Many people are not aware that Chinese immigrants founded the fishing industry in Monterey, California, in the 1850s.  This little-known history will be the focus of Red Altar at the Nevada Theater on Saturday, November 18, at 8:00 p.m., offering a critical look at immigration and migration in America.  Red Altar is written, produced, and performed by Nancy Wang and Robert Kichuchi-Yngojo of Eth-Noh-Tec, an acclaimed international storytelling troupe from San Francisco.  The show is appropriate for all ages. It is historical, culturally inviting, and thought-provoking. Tickets are $20 and are available at Briar Patch, the Book Seller, online at www.catsweb.org, and at the door.
