16th Street Theater
OUR DAD IS IN ATLANTIS now thru May 21!
In Mexico, an 11 year-old boy and his 8-year old brother are left behind with relatives they barely know when their widowed father goes to ‘the promised land’ to find work. We witness snapshots of their dreams (baseball!) and fears (devil in the mirror!) while they take care of each other, imagine their future and navigate a journey well beyond their years.
Press Opening Th April 21 7:30 PM and VIP Opening Fri, Apr 22 7:30 PM
Thursday & Friday performances are followed by post-show dialogues.
Tickets just $13 each for groups of 8+!
At under 80 minutes and centering on two brothers aged 8 and 11, OUR DAD is a very imaginative and entertaining play. Let your kids discover the joy of theater. Buy tickets by calling (708) 795-6704. Or call us if you have any questions or would like to bring a group: (708) 795-6704 x104.
Featuring Todd Garcia (from DENTAL SOCIETY) and Remy Ortiz (from Goodman's Latino Fest) Directed by Ann Filmer.
