Jennifer Lompart's English as a Second Language class will once again hold a Latino Play Festival. This time, there will be 20 student-written productions, followed by a showcase of students with musical talents. Performers include Savannah Stuckmayer, Jon Fried, Zach Young and others.
Lompart said that the first half of the play performances will delve into challenges that Latinos face living in America. Examples are living with parents who work long hours in factories, misunderstanding the importance of athletics and even stories about how some students came to live in Northfield. The second half will be more upbeat, said Lompart, taking a peek at the positive aspects of the actors' lives and their dreams for the future.
