As the days get hotter, we Tucsonans look forward to the fall.

Sure, for the cooler weather. But also because the performing-arts season gets underway.

The Star is planning its fall performing-arts preview for early September. Which means, arts groups, we need to hear from you.

We need your event, the dates, the location (with address, please) and a contact phone number for readers. In the case of theater, please include the playwright and a few lines describing the play.

Many sent out information when seasons were announced, but because things change, we're asking you to resubmit it.

The deadline is Aug. 9 - that may seem far, far away, but it'll be here before you know it. So don't dally!

Only emailed submissions will be accepted.

For music - including pop, world and classical - send the information to Cathalena E. Burch at

Theater and dance information goes to Kathleen Allen,
