MONTEREY PARK — East West Players Theatre for Youth will present a special play called “re:MiX’T (A Multicultural Mash-up)” on Monday, March 4, at 4 p.m. in the Friends Room of the Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library, 318 S. Ramona Ave.
Written by Kate Rigg and directed by Peter Kuo, the play takes the audience on a wild journey through the choppy waters of race and identity in America, exploring multicultural voices through poems, monologues, scenes and letters.
The program, sponsored by Friends of the Monterey Park Library and Southern California Edison, will feature a 45-minute play suitable for grades 7 to 12, prizes and refreshments.
East West Players Theatre for Youth offers new ways to see the world through performance-based and participatory theatrical programs that stimulate students to discover Asian Pacific people and cultures. Created in the early 1970s, it was designed to promote cultural understanding and racial tolerance among youth. Today, the basic philosophy remains the same and the program has grown and developed to meet the ever-increasing diversity of our society.
Library hours are Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.; Monday and Tuesday, 12 to 9 p.m.; Wednesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, closed. For more City of Monterey Park news and information, visit www.ci.monterey-park.ca.us. For more information about the free program, call (626) 307-1368.
