Can you believe more than 40 performances have come and gone in Laxson Auditorium since last September?

With only two shows left, Chico Performances ends the 2010-2011 season on a rockin' high!

First Scott Simon, NPR host of Weekend Edition Saturday speaks on May 10th.

Next, grab your nouns, adjectives, friends and family for the special local performance of School House Rock Live! Jr. This performance is a great way to kick off the summer with the kids!
