The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami- Dade County (@arshtcenter) announces new performances available to Arsht UTIX (#ArshtUTIX) registrants for the 2019-2020 season. Now in its sixth year, Arsht UTIX provides full-time, degree- seeking undergraduate and graduate level college students with $25 tickets to dozens of performances at the Arsht Center each season. Students can register for free at arshtcenter.org/UTIX.

$25 tickets are now available to the following performances for the 2019-2020 season: Cuba Beat: India en Homenaje a Celia Cruz (September 28), Cuba Beat: Martí: Versos de Cuba, Canciones de Libertad (November 8), City Theatre’s The Cake (December 5 – December 22), Cuba Beat: Willy Chirino & Lissette: Navidad en Familia (December 14), Salute to Vienna New Year’s Concert (December 28), and Cuba Beat: A Beny Moré, Con Amor (February 22, 2020).

For the first time, an Arsht UTIX subscription package to the Center’s 2019-2020 Theater Up Close series is available.

New performances will be added to the Arsht UTIX program regularly throughout the year. Students are encouraged to visit arshtcenter.org/UTIX for the most up-to-date performance offerings.
