A Weekend of Surprises!

2:25 PM
Celebrate Día de los Muertos with First Stage at the Marcus Center’s Todd Wehr Theater during ON THE WINGS OF A MARIPOSA on October 26 and 27.

In conjunction with this play, First Stage will celebrate Día de los Muertos at the Marcus Center’s Todd Wehr Theater with a Mercadito – Artisan Market – hosting ten local artisans who will sell their handmade items, like Día de los Muertos skulls or calaveritas, colorful earrings, coasters, cornhusk dolls, natural soaps and candles, and much more.

Some of the artisans who will be selling their work include
Ceci Tejeda, Linda Serna, Yesica Coria, Iuscely Flores, Mi Salgado, Lila Saavedra, alida cardós whaley, Brenda Brambila, Yessica Jiménez and Leilani López.
The Mercadito will be open from noon to 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 26, and noon to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 27.

To take our celebration of culture and tradition further, Latino Arts Strings Program students and their Director Dinorah Márquez will perform traditional Mexican songs live from 2:30 to 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, and from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. on Sunday.
Following Sunday’s performance will be a Tech Talk – a 20-minute extended talkback with the creators: Barbara Joosse, who wrote "Ghost Wings," the book that inspired the play; playwright Alvaro Saar Ríos; and Music Supervisor Dinorah Márquez, composer and lyricist for the original music for this production.
