Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.

Growing up Cuban-American in Miami, FL, "Carmencita" Diana Yanez was led to believe that she was Caucasian. "When I was a kid I thought Princess Leia was Cuban. I thought Donny and Marie Osmond were Cuban I even thought Santa was Cuban! Why wouldn't I? And I wasn't black, so that meant I was white, right...? WRONG."

"SKIN DEEP"
Written and Performed by Chelsea Hackett
Directed by Heather Lanza
"Body and Soul" Lyrics by Edward Heyman, Robert Sour and Frank Eyton
"Body and Soul" Music by Johnny Green
We're bombarded everyday with messages telling us to change our bodies. Pluck this, extend that, tighten this, loosen that. What's resulted is a culture of people who look in the mirror and can only see what they want to change. "Skin Deep" asks what you would change  not about your body, but about how you see it.
