Production Description

Casting "The Mighty Vandals," part of this fall’s CALA Arts Festival. In the play, The Mighty Vandals basketball team clinched the 1951 state championship, breaking nine national and 18 state records along the way. But the roster of players were unlikely hoop champs. Three years before the U.S. Supreme Court banned segregation in schools and more than a decade before the Civil Rights Act, the squad of mostly Mexican-American teens were living the life of local sports celebrities by day, but returning to their poor, segregated neighborhoods at night - and yet they triumphed.

The New Carpa Theater Company has been dedicated to the production of Latino and multicultural theater since 2002.
