The murals, the music, the taqueros and tamaleros, the Christmas parade and lowrider parades, the gardens, the hills, the arroyo…and the people. Highland Park is Here connects the fractured stories—past and present—of this iconic Los Angeles neighborhood in this moment of community change, searching for shared spaces and experiences. From our homes to our street corners to on-line, if you are there, then Highland Park is Here.

Performed by a cast of 30+ people from Highland Park, Occidental College and Cornerstone,  Highland Park is Here takes us on a virtual journey from York to Figueroa and the Arroyo, from yesterday to tomorrow, from fact to fantasy, all told through the stories of the people who live there.

The play is told in two paths, Llegamos - the multigenerational story of one family from the 1950s to today - and Movements & Moments, local stories from the 1990s to today.

Thursday, Nov. 19 at 7:30pm - Llegamos will be performed
Friday, Nov. 20 at 7:30pm - Movements & Moments will be performed
Saturday, Nov. 21 at 7:30pm - Llegamos will be performed
Sunday, Nov. 22 Matinee at 2:00pm - Movements & Moments will be performed

Attend two performances if you want to see all of Highland Park is Here, but each path can be experienced without the other, too.

Highland Park is Here is created in/with/for the residents of Highland Park and Cornerstone Theater Company, Oxy Arts, and the Occidental College Theater Department.
