Taiwanese Culture Night is an annual, original student-run stage production hosted by a group of passionate students at UCLA. This year, our 20th annual production will be held at Royce Hall on April 21st, and will be free for anyone who wishes to attend. Over 50 students put in countless hours of effort in all aspects of theater, including producing, scriptwriting, directing and acting, stage design, and media production, to put on a show for an audience of over 1000. In addition, TCN invites vocal performances from Taukappella, and dedicates the entire production to tell a story that educates our UCLA community and beyond about Taiwanese American culture and relevant issues that have an impact on us all.
Our new, exciting production this year features the coming-of-age story of a Taiwanese girl who moves to America, as well as the challenges she faces as she experiences different cultural norms, family issues, and pursues her dream.
台灣文藝晚會(TCN) 是一場由一群熱血青年舉辦的年度盛宴。這個晚會完全由學生一手包辦製作、撰寫劇本、導演、戲劇演出、後台製作與燈光音響、舞台設計、影片剪輯、還有人聲合唱演出。五十餘名學生在課業與工作之餘，熱情付出時間與努力為五百席的觀眾提供充滿娛樂、懷舊、與感動的一晚。今年的晚會將在校園的 Royce Hall 於4月21日開幕，並免費對外開放給任何希望出席的嘉賓。
Taiwanese Culture Night reaches a unique audience of about 1000 students and faculty, some of whom attend with little to no knowledge of Taiwanese culture. Because admission is free, each year we are able to highlight our culture to a new audience and celebrate it with others in our community without hindering those with financial concerns. However, our production costs over $30,000 to put on this year and as a free, fully student-run production we are asking you, the community, for your support. We want to continue raising cultural awareness to make an impact in the UCLA community. All donations are tax deductible.
TCN成立20年以來每年都堅持提供免費的門票以便任何希望出席的觀眾入場。因此，我們同時必須募集資金來承擔製作與幕後的開銷，包括服裝、道具、和使用UCLA Royce Hall場地的費用。這次演出總計需要花費近兩萬美金。所有參與演出的學生都是志願付出時間與心血，不會分得任何金錢利益。我們相當注重也支持增加台灣文化意識，完全願意全心為這場晚會的成功而努力打拚，因此我們也希望能得到您的支持。所有為我們演出提供的捐助都可以減稅！
We, the Taiwanese Culture Night 2019 Team, sincerely thank you for your support. Your impact is the reason we are able to fulfill our dreams of expressing our passion and unique cultural backgrounds through the performing arts. We hope you can join us at our show on April 21st!
