Due to the evolving situation with the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus), the Department of Theatre and Dance's production of How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents, scheduled for Thursday, April 16 – Sunday, April 19, has been canceled. 

A play by Karen Zacarías based on the novel by Julia Álvarez
directed by Walter Schoen 

García Girls succeeds most vividly as a bittersweet coming-of-age comedy, one not afraid to reflect on various degrees of women’s grown-up disillusionments.” — Washington Post 

Based on Julia Álvarez’s critically acclaimed, best-selling novel, Karen Zacarías’ play follows four sisters who emigrate from the Dominican Republic to New York City in 1960 because of political strife and personal danger caused by the governmental situation in their homeland. The newly arrived immigrants must adjust to a new life and a new culture while meeting the challenges that are a part of growing up. This wonderful bilingual production mixes all the elements of good theatre with a compelling story to produce an exciting evening of thought-provoking entertainment.
