A Staged Reading of

"Easter Sunday at the Juarez Floral Shop"

by Josie Nericcio

Directed by Roberta H. Martínez

Time: Present, Easter Sunday morning         Place: a small town in South Texas

It’s Easter Sunday at the floral shop run by the Juarez sisters, Tencha and Anita.  The shop is across the street from the city cemetery and sells only artificial flowers.  Anita, the younger sister, is dying of cancer, but Tencha is holding out hope in the form of a curandera she has hired, without telling her sister.  As Tencha waits for the curandera, Anita tries to prepare her sister for her death, something Tencha does not want to talk about, but the future is coming, no matter how hard Tencha tries to avoid it.

Carmelita Maldonado, Gabriela de Luna, Jared Trevino, Beatriz Jamaica, Stephanie Hoston

Join OcTech, Caltech's choral octet, for an evening performance of nature-themed choral music!

We are a group of eight graduate students and postdocs who sing challenging, beautiful music together.

This performance will feature music from the 16th century to the 21st, including greats like Arvo Part and Morten Lauridsen along with the premiere of a piece by one of our very own!

Join us at 7PM on Saturday April 27th at the Parson's Nose Theater for an evening of birdsong, beauty, and aurora borealis.
