Party Like It’s…1927

June 12, 2016 @ 2:30 pm

About…Productions Party Like Its 1927Join us for an afternoon of live theater, music, and early California history! ‘Party Like It’s 1927’ kicks-off our partnership with About…Productions.

Experience a private tour of the Playhouse, reserved seats for one-of-a-kind concert featuring members of Quetzal, and an on-stage reception with theatrical excerpts from our soon-to-be-remounted “They Shoot Mexicans, Dont They?”

About…Productions “They Shoot Mexicans, Don’t They?” tells the fictional story of a New York producer who in 1927 plans to make a silent movie of The Mission Play. Blending comedy and drama, the show explores the historic encounter between early Hollywood and Latino culture, and includes original and period music written and interpreted by members of Quetzal.

A site-specific remount of the production is scheduled for May 2017,  as part of the event series “The Latin Wave: Exploring Myth, Illusion, and Cultural Appropriation.”

Opened in 1927, The San Gabriel Mission Playhouse was built for “The Mission Play” that ran for over 3,000 performances to 2.5 million people.

Ticket Price: $50
$75 VIP tickets includes a party bag with the “They Shoot Mexicans, Don’t They?” CD
