In their spare time three vigilantes, childhood friends, enjoy patrolling the U.S./Mexican border. But these youths soon learn that even the most guarded borders are permeable. When the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred, these young men are forced to decide what it means to be an American, and who has the right to belong.

Throughout innovative choreography, aerial work and theater, VF Dance Theater is excited to show its new work about how memories—even the hard ones—can keep the ones we love alive. Based on a true story, the show raises awareness for Breast cancer using the arts. However it is not about Death, but It’s about how a strong spirit can never really be extinguished. It’s about a family coping, healing, and moving forward. In conjunction with a book that was written with the show “Balou the Comforter” the company hopes to offer HOPE and healing to those battling with cancer and their loved ones.

The Happenstance quintet delves into Ancient Greek Mythology with guest artist Craig Jaster generating a live musical score. In a pared-down 1940’s aesthetic a chorus of workers assembles lightning bolts and mines the Underworld. Like Sisyphus they must endlessly repeat their tasks. With an ample smattering of amusement, the performers invoke the Muses, offer Sacrifice, suffer Hubris, consult Oracles, and meet Fate as they portray an array of mortals and Gods whose flaws reflect their own.

A Performance by Ally Theatre Company of an original play written by Doug Robinson. Welcome to Sis’s, reimagines the story of Sis’s Tavern in North Brentwood. The play takes place during the 1920-30s and explores the meaning of community, the commonplace, and how it was shaped through racial segregation. Blending the genres of original comedy and drama, and based on historical inspiration, this play presents a unique view of racial inequality, oppression, and segregation right in our own backyard.
