Special guests, Lafayette mayor Don Tatzin, Stanley Middle School’s Bob Athayde and piano teacher Xiomara Di Maio, will act out scenes from the book “The Soup Opera,” a story about a man, a bowl of soup, and the man’s comically frustrating quest to eat that soup.

Come join the fun at noon; a repeat performance will take place at 1:00pm.
