Ten Years of 1,000 Stars

Here’s a math story problem. Remember, it helps if you can convert the problem into an equation.

If the 10th Annual Night of 1,000 Stars, which features over 145 performers in over 80 acts, were held on April 17th, 18th, 23rd, and 24th, 2015, including a matinee on the 18th, how many people could see the show if the TCA has 285 seats?


Yes, the multi-cultural community celebration of young local talent is in its 10th year. As in any other year, the show features singers, dancers, actors, poets, rappers, bands, musicians, comedians and magicians between the ages of five and 19. What’s different this year is some of the show’s most popular past performers were personally invited to help celebrate the show’s 10th anniversary.

With a few exceptions, like director Cindy Valerio and co-producer Dani Tafoya-Kesson, the show is cast and run by Taos teens. This year’s team of audition judges, onstage hosts and backstage crew is Dylan Atencio, Khalil Bilial, Eli Collignon, Justis Daniels, Athena Dunleavy, Sabina Jones, Sebastian Moulton, Kima Nelson, Kira Olguin, Gwendolyn Pieper, Brayan Salinas, Makenna Tafoya-Kesson, Wei-Sheun Yu and Joey Ziccarello.

Tickets are $15 for people 20 years old and up, $12 for youth ages six to 9, and $7 for children 5 years old and younger. Call the TCA directly at 758-2052 or stop by their office Monday-Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM to get your tickets.
