Dia de Muertos: A Wake!

More Info

Milagro Theatre
525 SE Stark Street

October 17 - November 10


Each year the dead are commemorated in the oldest celebration of the Day of the Dead in Portland. This year’s show directed by Lakin Valdez of the legendary Teatro Campesino, will delight in the style of the classic obra calavera such as one might encounter during the Day of the Dead in Mexico. Broad physical language, musicality, raunchy humor and bitter irony interweave with a modern twist. Join the muertitos as they wake up in a new reality and learn to let go of the crazy dreams of life.

Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8:00 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:00 p.m. Sundays
