2:00 PM Stage: The Misanthrope USCD Theatre & Dance stages Moliere's masterpiece about the curmudgeon's curmudgeon, in which the great French playwright exposes the "frivolity and inconsistency of his contemporaries." Nicholas Rapp directs.

Exhausted with uncertainty, Alceste finds himself at a party in order to uncover the true nature of Celimene's affections. There he encounters society; a slick, capricious people, who are, in Alceste's estimation, embodiments of decaying values and apathy in the face of corruption. With an unjust lawsuit hanging over his head, he comes to realize first hand the merit of speaking disingenuously as a course to survive. Alceste must finally decide whether his personal convictions are more or less important than his place in this world. 1666. A comedy.

8:00 PM Music: The Como La Flor Band - A Tribute to Selena The Como la Flor Band was founded in 2011 in the small town of Holtville, California. After 7 years, the band has become the most respected and trend-setter Selena tribute band in the country. They replicate the look, sound and feel of the Tex Mex Queen. The eight band members have developed an amazing on-stage chemistry. These veteran musicians pride themselves on giving their audience an incredible high-energy, qualitative stage show from start to finish. The lead vocalist has an amazing singing voice, flawlessly matching Selena Quintanilla's vocal range and on-stage movements. Dedicated to the loyal fans, the Como la Flor Band has worked hard and with the utmost humbleness and respect to bring the Selena experience with so much detail. Our singer's visual demeanor is identical to the Tex Mex Queen. The Como la Flor Band brings you the last concert Selena performed in Houston, Texas. There are also highlights from the early Selena years.
