WHEN

Saturday, March 18, 2017 at 7:30PM

WHERE

Oxnard College Performing Arts Center, 4000 S. Rose Ave., Oxnard, CA 93033

ABOUT

ESPERANZA RISING is the story of a young girl uprooted, transplanted, and re-grown on alien soil. The glorious, live music of mariachis carries Esperanza across the dividing line that cuts through the center of this play. That line divides two countries, two cultures, and two languages. It also separates Mexico and California, the year 1930 and 1931, and Act One from Act Two. Brought up in the lush and beautiful world of the Mexican aristocracy and then torn away and replanted in the impoverished world a migrant labor camp in California. Esperanza ultimately fulfills the promise of her name. In English with Spanish supertitles. For the whole family.

Words From A Cuban Father and Circo de tu corazón

WHO

Teatro de las Americas and Oxnard College present a double header of theatrical fun with playwright and performer Alina Cenal and director and performer James Donlon

WHEN

Saturday, June 25, 2016 at 8pm and Sunday, June 26, 2016 at 5pm

WHERE

Teatro de las Américas at Oxnard College Black Box Theatre, 4000 S. Rose Ave., Oxnard, CA 93033

ABOUT

WORDS FROM A CUBAN FATHER Mambo, carnival, revolution, Fidel and my dad, Miami, hotdogs, drag queens, the circus, Hollywood, music and dance highlight Cenal’s bilingual experience of being yanked from her native Cuba as a child and yearning to return. The strong presence of her father guides her through the American cultural landscape.

CIRCO DE TU CORAZÓN, delivered in a style evocative of Garcia Marquez’s magical realism, follows a colorful collection of eccentrics who populate a surreal circus lost somewhere in the Americas. JAMES DONLON & ALINA CENAL combine their expertise in comedy, movement, mask, improvisation, music and dance, to create beings and creatures of mystery and passion. CIRCO is a bi-lingual experience in Spanish and English where characters perform routines driven by skill, love and yearning. CIRCO was inspired by James Donlon’s many international performance tours to Mexico and Europe, and his four decades experience training fools for the stage, film, and circus. APPROPRIATE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
