For $20, today's deal gets you an orchestra or front-balcony ticket to see legendary performer Charo at the California Theatre of the Performing Arts in San Bernadino (a $76 value; facility and service charges included). This deal is valid for seats in orchestra sections A, B, and C or front-balcony sections D, E, F, and G. Choose between the following performances:
- Saturday, March 12, at 2 p.m.
- Saturday, March 12, at 8 p.m.
Creator of the "cuchi-cuchi!" catchphrase, Spanish-born Charo's decades-long music and acting career has seen her grace the sets of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Sonny and Cher, The Carol Burnett Show, and The Love Boat. With guitar in hand and glitter-engulfed get-ups, Charo strums, sings, and spins across the stage to the upbeat, exotic sounds of flamenco and other Latin-inspired music. Tenures in Las Vegas and Hawaii sharpened the performer's speedy finger-plucking finesse, and her recent anti-bullfighting single "España Cañí" garnered a 2009 World Dance Music Award nomination and the undying gratitude of balletic bovines across the globe.
Experience this dynamic legend inside the appropriately storied walls of The California Theatre. Built in 1928, the auditorium maintains its vintage roots with gold embellishments and a vibrant marquee. Originally used as a vaudeville cinema, the theater now plays host to a variety of concerts, plays, musicals, and more.
- The theater is beautiful with excellent acoustics. Small enough to have a great view from any seat. What a great little theater. – Mary R., Yelp, 10/23/10
- Charo sang, chatted, danced, and played her guitar amazingly well, while having a great time interacting with the audience. She is a lot of fun and hasn't slowed down. – Remyremy, Ticketmaster
California Theatre of the Performing Arts
A former vaudeville performance space and movie palace built in 1928, the California Theatre of the Performing Arts hearkens back to a bygone era with its majestic Wurlitzer organ, which is played during silent-film programs, and a time portal linked to the childhood home of Alexander Pantages. The theater’s deep-red stage curtains and ornate, vaulted ceilings also steep the senses in a vintage ambiance. Thanks to this comforting nostalgia, as well as the heartfelt scenes that unfold onstage, the space seems much cozier than a 1,718-seat auditorium has any right to.
