This production was scheduled May 5-14, 2023.

The Cuesta Drama program presents an adventurous and heartfelt story appropriate for all ages about flying superheroes, poetry, and friendship on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays May 5 through 14.

Flora & Ulysses is based on the book by Kate DiCamillo and was adapted for the stage by John Glore. It portrays an imaginative 10-year-old, Flora Belle Buckman, who is in for a surprise when she witnesses an incident involving a self-propelled vacuum and a squirrel. The show is directed by Brandon Pascal, an LA-based actor and educator, Templeton native, and Cuesta alum who earned an MFA from the University of Washington Professional Actor Training Program in 2020.

Friday shows are at 7 p.m., Saturday shows are at 2 and 7 p.m., and Sunday shows are at 2 p.m., in the Experimental Theater at the Harold J. Miossi Cultural and Performing Arts Center at Cuesta College.
