Latin Fiesta will be here Sunday! Doors open at 2, show starts at 3! Enjoy classical compositions and feel the thrill of Conga line during Latin Fiesta!
The Latin Fiesta ensemble has won wide acclaim as a pioneer in the presentation of crossover concerts. The ensemble is led by award winning performers Maria del Pico Taylor, Cuban born pianist, and Raymond Taylor, English born violinist.
The composition of the group consists of:
Maria-piano, Raymond Taylor-Violin, Vania Taylor-lead vocalist, Cynthia Folio-flute,
Fernando Valencia, Tom Lowery, Victor Pablo and Cuco Aponte-Latin percussion, Mike
Boone-bass, Liliana Ruiz -Latin/Flamenco dancer. The unorthodox composition of this
ensemble lends itself to exciting and versatile programming. Rarely does one hear a crossover concert that shifts from a hot salsa tune to a classical work by Albeniz, and then incorporates a contemporary Latin version of a Baroque Concerto Grosso or a recent commissioned piece by Oscar Hernandez, Carlos Franzetti, Arturo O’Farrill, or Tania Leon, ending with the audience rising out of their seats to join in an Afro-Cuban conga line.

Please come out and support the theater and the arts at our annual fundraiser, and you’ll also get to meet Mr. Samuel Clemens. Clemens brought Mark Twain to the theater in the 1870s and tried out a new routine. Apparently it didn’t go so well! Come on out this Saturday to see Mr. Twain, enjoy an open bar and try your luck at the tables!
Hard to believe we’ve had six months of movies, but here we are! As summer winds down so does the Kids Movie Club. Take advantage of the beautiful day and come on out to the theater for our final screening, which is a re-screening of the smash hit, “Moana”!
On a seemingly normal evening, we meet Thelma Cates (Mama), an aging mother and widow who lives with her daughter, Jessie. Jessie is the divorced mother of a hoodlum son, who – unsatisfied and depressed – struggles with life as an unemployed epileptic.
The mother-daughter bond between Jessie and Mama becomes stronger and lovelier than ever, making it possible for Jessie to end her noisy, cluttered existence, and enter a quieter, calmer life with closure and love. For tickets click here!

We are embarking on a great adventure and we need your help! We are on a mission to convert the fourth floor into a 125-seat theater the entire county can be proud of. We’re transitioning from a ‘black box’ theater to a bolted-down, real theater seats, theater and our upcoming fundraiser will make the difference, if we can count on your support! Please purchase a ticket or two and pass this along to your friends, your family and all of your Facebook friends as well. This is going to be one great evening, and you’ll get to meet Mark Twain! Mr. Samuel Clemens performed in our building in the 1870’s and according to an article in The Times Herald, he bombed! He’s coming back to redeem himself!
