"El Grande de Coca-Cola"
Category: Non-Equity Audition
In a night club somewhere south of the border, local impresario, Seor Pepe Hernandez has boasted to the local press that he is bringing a group of famous international cabaret stars to his club for his production of Parada de Estrellas (Parade of Stars). He persuades the local Coca-Cola bottling plant to back the show in exchange for some blatant product placement. But when the night of the show comes, no stars arrive to perform and Pepe is forced to hire his family (Juan, Miguel, Conseula & Maria) whose antics wreak havoc upon the stage. A deliriously funny and ridiculously wonderful show!
