2:00 PM Stage: American Mariachi The Old Globe presents American Mariachi, a world premiere play by José Cruz González, directed by James Vásquez, and staged in association with Denver Center for the Performing Arts Theatre Company.

Spending her days caring for her ailing mother, Lucha yearns to break her monotonous routine. Here's a wild idea: an all-girl mariachi band! But it's the 1970s, and girls can't be mariachis ... or can they?

As Lucha and her spunky cousin hunt for bandmates, dodge disapproving relatives, and bring Mom along for the ride, they wonder: will the band come together?

American Mariachi is a heartwarming comedy about family, progress and the freedom to dream, plus a wave of vibrant, infectious live music.

2:00 PM Stage: Yo, Vikings! When spunky, imaginative Emma Katz is assigned the viking Erik the Red for her World Discovery Day report, she begins to channel her inner Viking, setting off on a real adventure and changing her community for the better. Every time Emma learns something new she wants to become that thing, whether it's a dinosaur, a fox or a paramecium! Her teacher is afraid to teach anything new for fear of what she might become. Luckily, a wise librarian inspires Emma to uncover the magic of the Vikings in books, and helps her release the inspiration of the Vikings to make dreams come true.

Adapted from Judith Byron Schachner's acclaimed book of the same name, Yo, Vikings! is the mini-saga of 10-year-old Emma Katz, the fiercest Viking in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, and her quest for real adventure.
