WHEN: Thursday, June 6 | 11:30am
WHERE: John’s Market, 100 South Essex Avenue

Described by one Yelp reviewer as “a museum of Italian American heritage in Orange that also serves food,” John’s Market is an Orange Institution. Three generations of Orange residents have turned to John’s for delicious food and good company. Come for lunch on Thursday, and enjoy performances based on the culturally rich stories of John’s devoted patrons.

WHEN: Saturday, June 8 | 11:30 am
WHERE: Orange Public Library, 348 Main Street

The City of Orange will be celebrating its culture and history at the Orange Week Block Party on Main Street. Luna will join in the fun with a series of short plays and songs inspired by local characters and stories. The adventure begins on the steps of the Orange Public Library at 11:30 AM, and continues in multiple locations off the beaten path.

Stop by the Luna Stage table at the Block Party starting at 11:00 AM to pick up a schedule of events and learn more about Luna’s offerings for youth and adults.

WHEN: Saturday, June 8 | 2:00 pm
WHERE: Artfull Bean, 400 South Jefferson Street

On Saturday June 8, the Artfull Bean Cafe will close its doors for good. Before that happens, Luna Stage will share stories and songs to celebrate the experiences the Valley Arts community has shared in this local hub.
