                Everyone is invited and welcome to attend.   LESTA is hoping to find additional Volunteers and Board Mem-

      members - especially Latinos and people who are even somewhat Bilingual with Spanish and English.  If you care

      and are excited about the educational and cultural benefits of future BILINGUAL MUSICAL THEATRE and ARTS

      programs to get the Anglo and Hispanic communities together, share cultures and teach both Spanish

      and English,  we need your help and support -- any kind of participation even if you don't have much time. 

      There is always something you can do - even just handing out flyers to your friends, neighbors or office, for

      BILINGUAL MUSICAL THEATRE  SUMMER CAMPS at the Arts Center is a big help.



        Featuring Bilingual Acting, Singing, Dancing, Crafts and Masks, and ending with a Show free to the public

          on the last day of each Camp (the Friday at 3 pm) these BMT Camps bring Latino, Anglo and all ethnic group

          kids together to have fun and learn the disciplines of Theatre and the Arts, gain self-confidence, make new

          friends with lots of teamwork, and improve English while learning some Spanish too.
