If you haven't bought your tickets for this 5th installment of the El Verde stage series, you should! Opening weekend for this fast growing episodic play was a major sell out at Casa 0101, while such notables as the Rodartes from Ollin and the Arua/Arizmendi's (A Day Without A Mexican) got in by getting to the theater early and with reservations. Groups from all over are buying up seats fast for this familia-friendly production (ages 5 and over), so don't miss the opportunity to get your seats for this show now before it goes away. The show cannot extend because the entire cast has been invited to perform with Teada Productions at the Miles Playhouse this fall. They'll be performing the prior EV show titled El Verde Origins or El Verde vs. La Quinceanera.
