Yuma, AZ (February 27, 2024) – The community is invited to a production of Lysistrata presented by the Arizona Western College Visual and Performing Arts Department.

This play is rated PG13 and contains adult content and language.

The show will be presented March 7-10 at the AWC outdoor amphitheater, 2020 S. Ave. 8E. Preshow entertainment will be provided by BlueDotBellydance beginning at 5:30pm, with a 6:00pm curtain time for the show.
