Our 2021 Performing Arts Series for Students shows will go on sale Tuesday, May 26 at 10am.

The Red Altar Project is about six teenagers who crossed the ocean from China, crashed in the Carmel Bay of California, and began the fishing industry in the Monterey Bay area in 1850. In the face of anti-Chinese legislation, media propaganda with racist caricatures, and outright violence, they persevered with courage and ingenuity in an effort to lay down roots in their volatile new home. Seven generations later, their story is finally being told.    

Content Connections: History and Social Science, Geography, Chinese American Studies, English Language Arts, Visual and Performing Arts, California History
