On Friday, Sept. 27, Zach Theatre will begin its presentation of bilingual play, Salt and Pepper. The play will launch the new season of its family show series. This year also marks the second year Zach Theatre will be offering bilingual programming for families and schools, including students from low-income schools who will be seeing the play at a reduced price or no price at all.
Written by José Cruz Gonzalez and directed by Jessica Hutchinson, the cast features Michael Quinlara as “Salt,” Abigal Vela as “Pepper,” Ben Bazan as “Andy,” Karen Alvarado as “Hannah,” and Rodney Garza as “Grandpa.”
This bilingual play celebrates the bonds of family and friendship. Salt is a boy whose family has a secret—his grandfather cannot read or write. When Salt befriends Pepper, her love of books sparks his interest in the world of words. Then, a mysterious box of postcards sheds light on Salt’s family!
ZACH’s intimate Whisenhunt Stage is located at 1510 Toomey Road. Salt and Pepper is staged in partnership with the University of Texas Department of Theatre and Dance. Performances take place on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., with added performance on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 4:30 p.m. To order tickets call 512-476-0541 ext. 1 or visit www.zachtheatre.org.
