This July 29th and 30th, Tallahassee Hispanic will be presenting the fifth edition of its micro theater festival on the historical grounds of Goodwood Museum and Gardens. Buy your tickets here.
The festival will present a series of 15 to 20-minute plays written by Hispanic playwrights, performed in English. One of the plays is an original work by two members of the group.
In addition to the plays, the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy drinks and Hispanic food provided by Tally Arepas (available for purchase), and live Hispanic music throughout the event. On Friday night Talumba, a Latin American music ensemble based out of Tallahassee, and on Saturday Charles Santiago will be performing Hispanic guitar music.
Micro theater brings short stage performances up close to the audience in unusual venues. In the beautiful Carriage House the audience will be able to enjoy the setting, music, food, and performances (presented all in the same open space) while moving freely around the space and mingling with others.
This year Tallahassee Hispanic Theater will present these five short plays as part of the Festival.
