Come witness or participate in showcasing the hidden talent of the Santa Rosa Junior College community at the Latinx Carpa Student Talent Show from 6-8 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Burbank Auditorium.

Presented by the SRJC Latinx Faculty and Staff Association (LFSA), the show is part of the Herencia Series, which focuses on promoting indigenous and Latinx culture at SRJC.

Carpa, or “tent” in Spanish, refers to a type of traveling theater in the early 20th century, in which groups put on family entertainment under canvas tents, similar to circuses, and included a variety of skits, comedy acts, music and dance performances and even movies.

The association urges participants to stick to the Carpe and Herencia theme, but they are free to perform as they wish. SRJC students have priority registration, but alumni, faculty, staff and the public are able to participate if space is available. Performances are limited to three to four minutes each. Visit the Latinx Carpa Student Talent Show webpage to register to be in the show or for more information. The deadline to register is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 16. For more information about performing, visit the participation guidelines webpage. The LFSA also needs volunteers to serve as ushers.

“So many of our students are incredibly talented, and we can’t wait to show our community just how amazing they are,” said Beatriz Camargo, LFSA President.
