Madcap Chicano Comedy Troupe
Performs At CSUS

Chicano theatrical comedy troupe "Chusma," stages its zany brand of consciousness-raising dramatics at California State University, Sacramento at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 19. The event will take place in the University Union Ballroom.

The Los Angeles-based protégés of the extremely successful comedy group "Culture Clash," the troupe regularly tours Mexico, Washington, Oregon, New Mexico and California. L.A. Weekly describes Chusma as "horrifically funny."

The troupe takes its name from the Spanish slang word chusma that means "society's unwanted elements" or "outcasts." The troupe selected the name to signify its connection with the voiceless masses around the world and to seek to share the experiences of the forgotten counter cultures of society's so-called lower classes.

Tickets for this event are $8 general and $5 for students. Tickets are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at at (916) 766-2277. Media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS office of public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
