Now I am Your Neighbor banner

Produced by CALC, in partnership with Minority Voices Theatre (MVT), the stories, generously shared, were woven together in a creative narrative by local playwright Nancy Hopps. Directed by Carol Dennis with original music by Ricardo Cardenas, the play will be produced as a staged reading by readers who are immigrants themselves or very close to the immigrant experience.

The play will be performed at The  Very Little Theatre Stage Left, 2350 Hilyard St., Friday and Saturday, September 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, September 24 at 2 p.m. ASL interpretation is available at the Sunday performance.

Our readers include Isabel Smythe, Rosie Hernandez, Antonio Ochoa, Alex Reyna, Alex Aguilar, Stephanie Sarnoff, Brett French, Bill Campbell, Berri Hsiao, Ken Wong, Retoyia Ole Ronkei, Ibrahim Alessa.

A community discussion will follow the one-hour performance. The play is also accompanied by the recently updated “We Are Neighbors” photography exhibit, which celebrates immigrants living in Lane County.

Tickets are available at the door only, with a suggested donation of $5- $25. For more information, contact CALC at 541.485.1755 or
