Choi continues to advocate for full LGBT civil rights and veteran's health.

Stage performance: Rappelle-toi Prévert (Remembering Prévert)
Location: CAC Theater

This stage performance in French pays homage to French poet and playwright, Jacques Prévert. As the duo of André Nermand and Nelly-Anne Rabas acts, mimes and sings the poetry of this twentieth-century free spirit and rebel, we are reminded that his message is timeless. Defender of the poor and the oppressed, Prévert transforms his hostility toward the forces of social oppression into biting and humorous attacks against the rich and the powerful.

Tickets may be purchased in advance for $5 in 305 Jardine Hall or by calling (316) 978-3180 or at the door for $7.

For more information, call (316) 978-3180 or email wilson.baldridge@wichita.edu.
