4:00 PM Unveiled: A One Woman Play Written and performed by Rohina Malik. Performed with musician Lucia Thomas.
With the New Voices in the Community series, the Globe brings exciting contemporary playwrights to San Diego's neighborhoods, collaborating with the San Diego library system to broaden the city's access to new plays.

Racism. Hate crimes. Love. Islam. Culture. Language. Life. Five Muslim women in a post-9/11 world serve tea and uncover what lies beneath the veil in this critically acclaimed one-woman show. Unveiled has been presented at theaters in the United States, Canada, and South Africa. The Chicago Tribune praised the piece: "In her rich, upbeat and very enjoyable 70-minute collection of five character studies of Muslim women in modern-day America, Malik gives voice to characters from whom we hear far too little in the theater."

5:00 PM Documentary Film: Liyana Each year, World AIDS Day is recognized and dedicated to raising awareness about HIV/AIDS, and mourning of those that are have died from the disease. In acknowledgement of this international day, Tritons for Gender Equity (T4GE) and the Center on Gender Equity and Health (GEH) from the School of Medicine will be hosting a movie screening of "Liyana," an animated film about a tale created by five orphaned children in Swaziland. This film gives a documentary feel with poetic scenes to portray the power and healing of storytelling, especially from stories of perseverance. Before the movie begins, we will have a GEH faculty member discuss the impact of HIV/AIDS in our world and specifically in Africa. After the movie, the artist of "Liyana" will host a Q&A session about the film.

6:00 PM Stage: The Snow Queen Adapted from the beloved Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale by Ron Nicol, this nonmusical production tells the story of Gerda, a little girl who bravely searches for her friend Kai when he is bewitched and imprisoned by the Snow Queen in her ice palace. Gerda's innocence charms all good people and animals she meets on the way. They help her to the royal court, and on to Lapland, where good conquers evil and the children are reunited. A prominent theme portrays how each new group Gerda encounters seeks to prolong their new friendships.

Director Benjamin Cole promises there will be audience participation when the characters on stage break the fourth wall and ask for help directly, and sometimes get patrons to join them on stage for an even livelier production.

Featured in the cast are Silke Brandrup (Rancho Santa Fe), Ella Darlington (Encinitas), Luna Espinosa (Solana Beach), Jake Feldman (Carmel Valley), Hailey Irwin (Carmel Valley), Sofia Kahn (Rancho Santa Fe), Kayla Kamani (Del Mar), Phillip Korth (Mentor), Ella Lombardi (Rancho Santa Fe), Nadiia Sas (Santee), Lily Tanghe (Del Mar), Arianna Trette (Solana Beach), Rachel Weir (Encinitas) and Isabel White (Carmel Valley).

7:30 PM Music: Jeff Pekarek's Panamerican Shanty Jeff Pekarek is often seen locally as the bassist for The Benedetti Trio, The Peter Pupping Quartet, and Yale Strom. He was also the bassist for bluegrass legend Richard Greene, and a founding member of both the Jackstraws and the Electrocarpathians. In 2010, drawing on decades of involvement in the world of sea chanteys and intrigued by the emerging exotica style, Jeff welded together a body of arrangements entitled Panamerican Shanty. Historically focused on San Diego in the 90 year period from 1880 to 1970, Panamerican Shanty utilizes not only sea chanteys, but many other folk music types, as diverse as the Argentine milonga and the East Mediterranean dances that eventually helped give rise to surf rock. Jeff and friends will perform an evening of sea chanteys unlike any other, and provide a view into San Diego's own musical identity that is seldom seen. Presented by San Diego Folk Heritage.

Admission/Cost: $15 - $18
