Teatro en el Parque

On the evenings of Thursday, July 19; Friday, July 20; and Saturday, July 21 Hyde Jackson Square Main Street and Escena Latina Teatro will be celebrating our 6th annual Teatro en el Parque. This year we will be producing the play, Cumbia de mi Corazón, by Toby Campion and will be performed by Escena Latina Teatro. It will be acted in Spanish with English translations projected on a giant video screen. Prior to each show we'll set up our Café en el Parque featuring complementary live music, delicious food from local restaurants and offerings from local businesses. Cumbia de mi Corazón, by Toby Campion, is set in heaven with the protagonist trying to capture the heart of his wife.
