Teatro La Quindicina presents The Importance of Being Earnest
This epigram-packed tale of mistaken identities (deliberate and accidental) and romantic negotiations (unwitting and premeditated) is replete with the sort of articulate whimsy Teatro audiences adore.

Shumka presents Mosquito's Wedding
Mosquito’s Wedding (All We Need Is Love) is a new production inspired by a traditional Ukrainian folk song. The 50-minute family-focused dance theatre production will feature a number of insect characters from various “regions” of Ukraine. The dance lexicon, musical compositions, sets, costumes, and props will be associated with these ethnographic regions. The theme of the production is poignant, being one of acceptance, diversity, and overcoming stereotypes.
