Project Leads: Stephany Cavazos Andrea Stanfill Carrillo
A bilingual play that crosses cultures and explores what it means to be independent and confident with who you are and to stand up for what is right even when it’s the hardest thing imaginable. Featuring a cast of 15 versatile actors who sing dance and act while weaving in an epic love story with a modern battle of self identity.
Cielito Lindo is a celebration of Latino culture and a statement of the fact that love and friendship should be color blind and that you can either run from who you are or learn to embrace and lovecyourself no matter of your difference from others.
