Twelfth Night: A Galactic Farce

Twins separated in a galactic fight against the empire, struggle to be reunited on a distant planet. Disguising herself as a man, the princess becomes a servant in the household of Count Hand Solo. Meanwhile, Hand Solo, smitten with princess Armadilla, seeks her royal hand in marriage. Come experience Shakespeare's story of mistaken identity and unrequited love in a foul-mouthed-sexually-charged-wayward-world turned upside-down. Obi-Flan, Chewbarka, Barf Vader, C-3.1428571, and several other amazing characters make this parody a must see!

Rated R—strong adult language and content.

2nd Saturday Artwalk: Hispanic Heritage Celebration

In this lesson we will be creating a self-portrait in honor of El Maestro Emigdio Vasquez. We will study Proportion and Line using watercolors as our art medium.

Music: Manos de Fuego (drum specialty band) Emigdio Vasquez Jr.  (Son of renown Chicano Social Realism Master, Emigdio Vasquez http://www.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-emigdio-vasquez-20140815-story.html)

Art Vendors will be located throughout most areas of the mall.

Art Exhibits: Emigdio Vasquez Tribute Rosemary Vasquez (also daughter of Emigdio Vasquez and wonderful visual artist.) I think that there is no better way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month than by Honoring Emigdio Vasques and having his successors as our guest artists.

This Chicano movement of art is more than relevant to Santa Ana as a city and community. I was a part of the event planning committee that hosted the Celebration of Emigdio’s life in 2013 when he was awarded the Maestro Award https://www.ocregister.com/2013/06/14/chicano-artist-to-receive-maestro-award-saturday/

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

It’s just a jump to the left…

The Frida Cinema’s resident performance troupe K.A.O.S. returns on the second Friday of each month with their award-winning “shadow cast” of the immortal 1975 cult classic musical, The Rocky Horror Picture Show!

Sing and dance along to the journey of Brad and Janet, two virginal small-town lovers whose car breaks down in the shadows of a creepy old castle, home to faithful handyman Riff, his sister Magenta, tap-dancing Columbia, newborn Eddie, and of course, maniacal Dr. Frank-N-Furter!    

An adaptation of Richard O’Brien’s 1973 stage musical, director Jim (Don’t squeeze the…) Sharman’s cult classic stars Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon as sweethearts Brad and Janet, who find themselves at the doorstep of an eerie castle after they’re stuck with a flat tire during a storm.  There they discover an odd collective of “unconventional conventionalists,” there to witness transvestite scientist’s Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s latest creation – a muscular man named Rocky.  As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker Eddie (Meat Loaf), creepy butler Riff Raff (O’Brien himself), Riff Raff’s sister Magenta (Patricia Quinn), and tap-dancing Columbia (Nell Campbell). Sing-along (and shout-along!) to the 1975 classic that still packs houses almost 50 years since it’s release!

Our Rocky Horror shows get packed fast – pick up your tickets today at The Frida Cinema’s box office, or online at:

The Acjachemen – First People of the South Orange County Coast with Alfred Cruz and Patricia Martz

Presented by Alfred Cruz, Acjachemen descendant, and Patricia Martz, president of the California Cultural Resources Preservation Alliance and Professor emerita of anthropology and archaeology at California State University, Los Angeles.

The Acjachemen were among the earliest people to live in California and thrived there without outside contact for thousands of years. They adapted to many of the environmental changes that we face today, including drought, climate change, and rising sea levels. At the time of contact the Native American population was estimated at 310,000 but had dropped to less than 20,000 by the turn of the 19th century. Join Cruz and Martz as they share the story of the Juaneño/Acjachemen from pre-contact to the present.

Once upon a time there was a tiny town on a hill in Tuscany that found a remarkable way to deal with its issues - by creating a play out of lives of its inhabitants. Spettacolo is a documentary film that captures this 50-year-old tradition, where their piazza becomes the town’s stage and every villager, from 6 to 90 years old, plays a part.

Do you love attending Cinema Italiano but don’t love the subtitles? Arrive early for basic Italian language classes led by Petra Petry, a Professor of Italian at community colleges around Southern California. Classes and screenings will take place in the Norma Kershaw Auditorium.

Presented by Annalee Andres, art historian and founder of Art in Context
Featuring the work of Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, and Dale Chihuly

In the mid 20th century, American craft and sculpture saw radical shifts and blurred boundaries for the first time. By investigating the work of ceramicist Peter Voulkos and glassblower Dale Chihuly, we will trace the arc of this movement from traditional “craft” media to purely sculptural forms that were often grand in scale.

11 AM - 12 PM | Norma Kershaw Auditorium
Presented by Annalee Andres, art historian and founder of Art in Context
Featuring the work of Alexander Calder, Isamu Noguchi, and Dale Chihuly

Part 2 | Isamu Noguchi: Master of Stone
As a young man Isamu Noguchi worked in the studio of Constantin Brâncuși and then traveled to Japan where he was inspired by Buddhist funerary figures. In the U.S., he became deeply influenced by Surrealism. In this lecture we will consider Noguchi’s career as a reflection of the multi-variant influences of Modern art in the 20th century. With Noguchi’s later work and his California Scenario in Costa Mesa, as the ultimate culmination of these influences.
