This delightful high-flying spectacle is great family entertainment. Fly away with Peter, Tinkerbell and the Darling children to a place where children can fly, and exciting, frightening adventures happen every day. Pirates, fairies, natives and Lost Boys abound in this thrilling escapade! Starring: Jackie Nicole (Peter Pan), Madeline Rubenstein (Tiger Lily) and Arryck Adams (Captain Hook).
LATIDO FLAMENCO Saturday, July 14, 8 p.m. Latido Flamenco, which loosely translates into the heartbeat of flamenco, is an evening of music and dance reflective of the art form believed to have been born in southern Spain. Beyond rolling castanets, rapid-pulse footwork, twirling polkas dots and bullfighter poses, the night offers other sensational delights. Tapas will be served at the elegant dance scene of The Passionate Spirit Dance Academy while the best performers in Southern California are presented: Jose Tanaka on guitar, Briseyda Zarate singing, and Evelyn Nacif and Juan Talavera dancing. 2550 Vineyard Ave., suites 210 and 220, Oxnard. Call 407-1587 for more information.
