If you missed last week's performance of the new musical "Let The Eagle Fly," playing at The University of Texas-Pan American University Theatre, you have two more opportunities to see it, Oct. 21-22. The show tells the life story of Cesar Chavez, founder of the United Farm Workers. The story opens when Cesar is 11-years-old and his brother Richard is nine. Pictured above are the two boys who will play the Chavez brothers. Young Richard will be played by Patrick Martinez (left) and young Cesar will be performed by Jeffery Colin (right). The performances are scheduled to begin promptly at 7 p.m. on both days at the Albert L. Jeffers Theatre. The performances will be taped for the authors of the play and for a possible showing on the Edinburg Cable Network-Channel 12. Because the aisles will be filled with cables, cameras and equipment, no handicapped seating is available, no children under third grade may attend, no latecomers will be admitted and no one can enter or leave the theatre while taping is in progress. Please plan accordingly. Two people can be admitted with each UTPA ID. Regular tickets at $10 for other students, $15 for general admission and $20 for reserved, will be available as space permits. For more information, call the University Theatre at 956/381-3581 between 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m.
