FRI. January 28, 2022 @ 7PM


Based upon the popular pulp fiction novels of prolific pulp writer Johnston McCulley, composer-librettist Héctor Armienta's explosive new work is filled with romance, danger, and sword-fighting suspense. Led by visionary stage director Octavio Cardenas, Zorro stars tenor César Delgado as Zorro/Diego de la Vega, Gabriella Enríquez as the passionate Ana Maria, and baritone Octavio Moreno as the tyrannical General Moncada. This stellar cast of seven will be accompanied by Dr. Charlene Lotz at the piano, with fiery flamenco flourishes from American virtuoso guitarist Christopher McGuire. Zorro will be presented at the Rose Marine Theater in the heart of Fort Worth’s historic North Side. This swashbuckling adventure, featuring one of pop culture's most iconic vigilantes, will thrill audiences of all ages.

Artes de la Rosa proudly presents - Pauline and Louis, An Original Play Written and Directed by Richard J. Gonzales. 
The story follows the lives of Pauline Valenciano and Louis Zapata.
Two Day Shows:
Friday, October 15th @ 7:00PM
Saturday, October 16th @ 3:00pm & 7:00pm
After Pauline Valenciano and two daughters are arrested at a Fort Worth grocery store for protesting the market's refusal to sell United Farm Workers Union produce, mother and girls are separated. In the jail cell, she seeks answers to their whereabouts and contemplates whether her activism has compromised her role as a good mother. She knows the need for more Chicanas in La Causa, but at what cost to her family. Louis Zapata enjoys his life of luxury in Mexico City, working on a Bell Helicopter assignment to the US State Department. When he receives calls to return to Fort Worth to run for city council, he faces a dilemma. Born and raised in "El Pozo" the hole, he has climbed to a comfortable lifestyle. However, he's been separated from his family for two years and there's no guarantee he'll win office. If he were elected, the city's North Side would have its first Latino representative and hopefully bring much-needed dollars to their long-neglected neighborhoods. Pauline and Louis weigh the costs in service to the Latino community.
