About this project

PLANTING FLAGS (Plantando Banderas) is a high-energy theatrical and musical presentation that celebrates the accomplishments of four prominent Latinos.  The show features a talented group of Mambo dancers and renowned spoken word artists, Peggy Robles and Orlando Ferrand.

November 12th, 3pm and 8pm and November 13th, 8pm.  

Through dance, poetry and narration, we will learn about how childhood dreams and the struggles to pursue those dreams resulted in big success for the four honorees who are:
