Based on the 1884 story by Helen Hunt Jackson, a dramatization of Ramona was a regular pageant at the San Gabriel Mission for many decades and became something of a branding tool for the romantic ideal of California. Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre, with its band of dancers, musicians, actors and performers, descends on this site, which actually figures in the Jackson story, for Ramona After Dark. Choreographer Duckler combines the troupe's site-specific chops with dance, American music and contemporary considerations of female empowerment and the racial discrimination that laces the romanticism in this timeless coming-of-age tale. The two performances after the opening are dubbed The Story of Ramona. Same show, different pre- and post-show events. Details at
