SRJC Theatre Arts Department Productions 2014-2015 - #3 American Night; the Ballad of Juan Jose
The SRJC Theatre Arts Department's 2014-2015 season continues in March with American Night; the Ballad of Juan Jose, by Richard Montoya, directed by Reed Martin.
"Juan José falls asleep while studying for his U.S. citizenship test and finds himself on a delirious roller-coaster through American history. As our hero time-travels through a blisteringly funny fever dream, he receives advice from Sacagawea, Jackie Robinson, Bob Dylan, and many others. Hilarious and moving, this timely satire (developed by the acclaimed Chicano-American comedy troupe Culture Clash) fearlessly takes on issues such as immigration, race, and what it means to be a "Real" American."
The play will run from March 6 through March 15, with both matinee and evening performances. For show times, additional detail and information on other plays in the 2013-2014 season, see the Theatre Arts Department website's Current Season page (Scan down the page to see show times and other play information.) or view this Calendar of performances.
Recommended for age 10 and above. Contains satirical portrayals of historical and religious figures.
