(DENVER, Colo., April 22, 2004) Jose Mercado sits with Jimmy Guereca, nephew of actor George Guereca, while Krystal Santovena dances with Richard Romero in the background. Jose took over baby sitting duties spontaneously to keep his actors together and working while keeping the production moving foreward the best he could. This afternoon the theatre kids got kicked out early for a dance class performance but before it finished they were able to get most of the kids in the play attending for a first. Alocal newspaper published a great cover story and the kids felt fame for a moment and the inpending jealousy and comparison too...mostly pride, however, for the hard working achievers. Jimmy, a toddler, was in need of a babysitter so Jose took over the task without blinking an eye to help out his actors. By 9pm they were still working in the basement and this was suppose to be a short night... Jose Mercado teaches and directs a band of North High School students in a first run play entitled Zoot Suit Riots. It will take place April 30-May 2 at the North Auditorium. This is the first time a play of such substance with expectation included from the teacher to make it more than just another high school play. (Photo by: STEVEN R. NICKERSON/ROCKY MOUNTAINNEWS)
