American Mariachi
American Mariachi Live
​by José Cruz González
directed by Christopher Acebo
July 15, 17, 23, 25, 28, 2​9, 3​1
(all performances at 7:30 p.m.)

Back by popular demand! In this big-hearted comedy with live music, Lucha spends her days caring for her mother and yearning for more. But it’s the 1970s and women can’t be mariachis…or can they? Defying tradition, Lucha and her spunky cousin hunt for bandmates and take up instruments. A loving gesture for a mother becomes much more as the young women dream big and embrace the transcendent power of music. “A tug at the heartstrings that will echo for days” (Denver Post).

Recommendation: Age 12 and above.

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown
You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown Live
​based on the comic strip "Peanuts"
by Charles M. Schulz
book, music and lyrics by Clark Gesner
additional dialogue by Michael Mayer
additional music and lyrics by Andrew ​Lippa
directed by Kari Hayter
July 16, 18, 22, 24, ​30, Aug. 1 (all performances at 7:30 p.m.)

Good grief! The whole “Peanuts” gang is here—Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, and of course, that wishy-washy blockhead, Charlie Brown. He’s never pitched a winning baseball game and he can’t muster the courage to talk to the Little-Red Haired Girl. But all his best qualities—and those of his clever friends—get celebrated in this delightful musical filled with such gleeful tunes as "My Blanket and Me," "Suppertime" and "Happiness."

Recommendation: Ages 4+
