OCC to show comical Latino play

COSTA MESA — Orange Coast College's theater department will present "Latins Anonymous," a comical look at what it's like sometimes to be Latino in Orange County.

The play will be performed at 8 p.m. Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, inside the OCC Drama Lab Theatre, 2701 Fairview Road, Costa Mesa. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door.

Ticket prices for students and seniors are $5 in advance, $7 at the door.

OCC staff and faculty will be admitted free of charge.

"Latins Anonymous" is the first full-length play directed by student Linda Viramontes, who has helped behind the scenes as stage manager and as assistant director in many OCC Repertory Theatre productions.

The director, who lives in Santa Ana, aimed to create a play that helps Latinos laugh at themselves, while also being "proud of who we are and where we come from," according to a news release.

She also was one of the founding members of the Deep Blue Sea Repertory.
