Up with People returns to its original Tucson home with
Up With People, the effervescent performance group that travels the globe teaching tolerance and racial awareness, has returned to Tucson after a seven-year absence.
The group will perform its newest show, "A Common Beat," Sunday in UA's McKale Center. The performance is a collage of different cultures that will represent the group members' native backgrounds through song and dance.
"We have reached a new level in our production," said event coordinator Kimberly Forehand. "It's a little bit more in-depth. We use more lights, we use more sound, we have brand-new costumes. It's a musical."
Up With People has put on presentations in countries all over the world since its conception in 1965.
