Renowned actress, dancer, singer and author Rita Moreno will grace two San Antonio stages on Tuesday for special events hosted by the Las Casas Foundation.

Why it matters: Moreno's illustrious career includes two Emmys, a Grammy an Oscar and a Tony. She is the only Latina to achieve EGOT status.

What's happening: A free Q&A-style master class will kick off Moreno's visit at 10am at the Empire Theatre. The event is open to any students and teachers, but reservations are required via [email protected].

  • "An Evening with Rita Moreno" at the neighboring Majestic Theatre will take place at 7:30pm.
  • Tickets start at $29, but luxury packages, which include pre-show dinners, are also available.
  • It's billed as an "unforgettable journey" through Moreno's nearly 80-year career as an entertainer.

Of note: San Antonio's own Ricardo Chavira, known for his roles in "Desperate Housewives" and "Selena: The Series," will moderate both events.

Between the lines: The events raise funds for the Las Casas Foundation, which supports young theater artists in San Antonio and South Texas through scholarships.
