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.
