Cabrillo Stage Presents: Escaping Queens
Wednesday, July 24, 2013, 02:00pm - 11:00pm

With a new cast and revised staging, Santa Cruz composer Joe Ortiz's musical memoir Escaping Queens returns after it's sell-out world premier at Cabrillo Stage in 2012. In the shadow of Queensboro Bridge lies the heat-rending and comic story of an immigrant family. Through the eyes of a young boy, we meet a zany cast of jubilant characters --a gambling Puerto Rican father, a nurturing Italian mother, a love-crazed teenager, a lurking neighborhood bookie and Doo Wop kids singing on the street corner-- who weave the tale of a desperate escape from New York. Contains adult language. Tickets may also be purchased at the VAPA Box Office located outside the Crocker Theater beginning June 18th (hours are Tuesdays - Fridays, 12-6PM and Saturdays 12-4PM). Showtimes: 8:00PM: July 24 (Preview), 25 (Opening Night), 27; August 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17. 3:00PM: July 28; August 4, 11 (Post Show Discussion after performance), 18.

Location : Cabrillo Black Box Theater, 6500 Soquel Drive, Aptos

Ranges from $22 (child, single show, back side) to $157 (adult, 4-show season pass, premiere seats)

Gemini Festival of Goodwill, World Invocation Day

This entire week is a preparation by the New Group of World Servers (NGWS) for the June full moon (Tuesday) and to welcome the Forces of Reconstruction, great outer planetary forces streaming into the Earth at the Gemini Solar Festival. The Gemini Festival at the June full moon is called the Festival of Goodwill and World Invocation Day (recitation of the Great Invocation, the mantram of direction for humanity, hourly around the world). During the (12 degrees) Gemini festival, the Wesak blessing of the will-to-good is released and radiated (Gemini distributes) to humanity. When the will-to-good is received, humanity is then able to radiate goodwill to each other and to the kingdoms. The Gemini Festival is the third of the Three Spring Festivals (triangle of Force), setting the spiritual template and resources for Earth for the rest of the year (‘til next spring). This festival recognizes the true spirit of humanity—aspiring toward and seeking the will of God, dedicated to right human relation. At the full moon, the Divine nature of humanity is recognized. Christ stands with humanity, leader of his people, “the Eldest in a great family of brothers” (Romans VIII, 29.) Each year at the Gemini festival, Christ preaches the last sermon of Buddha, His brother, a sermon calling forth human and spiritual unity, represented by an outflow of love (work of the Christ) and wisdom (work of the Buddha). The forces of reconstruction stream in during the Festival, ushering in an era of pronounced creative activity, rebuilding the tangible world on new creative lines. This necessitates the total destruction of the old forms no longer useful for the new world era. Everyone is invited. Join us everyone for this Festival of Goodwill by reciting the Great Invocation.
