Sacramento the Lao'd Nation!!!

Congratulations to LAAO for hosting a historical and amazing event Sabaidee Bpeemai Lao Celebration at Cal Expo in Sacramento. We were honored to be invited. Our participation in sharing an aspect of the Lao community through theater for a crowd of thousands has been a true highlight in the Refugee Nation journey. We had a wonderful time and send sincere congratulations to the team that made it happen: Lily, La, Jerry, Judy, Jenny, Khonnie, Vicki, Melinda, Katherine and everyone of the Sacramento LAAO team.

same but different

Rehearsals began this week in preparations for Lao New Year in Sacramento and for our Pacific Northwest Tour to Seattle and Portland. On the one hand, it hasn't been THAT long since our last show, feels familiar. But something is different. Oh yeah! We had a baby! Nouthak Hakumele Saopeng (4 months) is attending all rehearsals and will be joining us on tour. Wow, what a whole new adventure. Hope we get to see you all on the road.
