Final Weekend in Santa Cruz! 

This Friday & Saturday, June 10-11 marks the final weekend of performances in Santa Cruz at the Pacific Cultural Center. Please join us for this magical transformation into the next step of our journey.

We invite you to join us for a World Cafe at the Pacific Cultural Center on Sunday, June 12. Tea and snacks will be provided as we discuss, share and deepen our understanding of the themes and messages from A Star Called Love; The Freedom Stories of Lala. Please come and voice your questions and experiences as we join in community. (more info below & on Facebook)

Do you know of a community or place that would welcome Lala and her stories? Maybe it is a theater, a school, a church, a community center or something else entirely! Please call (831) 421-9160 or email us as we share this story of love far and wide. And keep reaching out. Your emails and stories via facebook, email or phone call are treasures to us.
