If you love performing art, then you’ll want to enter a chance to win a pair of tickets to the performance of your choice from the Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA’s (CAP UCLA) upcoming 2018–19 season!*

And while you’re planning for the show, make a complete experience out of your time on campus and book a room at the UCLA Luskin Conference Center. Just a short walk away from Royce Hall and other venues, it makes the perfect home base, both before and after the performance.

Enjoy dinner before the show at Plateia, the Luskin Conference Center’s Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and lounge. After the show, relax in the comfort of your beautifully appointed guest room, where you’ll find a welcoming array of fine amenities. Then wake up refreshed, ready to make the most of your stay by exploring any or all that UCLA has to offer such as a visit to the nearby UCLA Athletics Hall of Fame or tour UCLA’s gorgeous gardens with our self-guided walking map. You can even stay put, enjoy a leisurely breakfast at Plateia and then spend time perusing our impressive 95-piece art collection located throughout the property. We hope you stay with us and enjoy the show!
