Tara Smith, who is on the committee, says the festival’s artistic director Eva Moore developed the idea for a Mexican-themed event.
People are not only encouraged to go to the fundraiser, but also wear theme clothes and even bring instruments, says Smith.
“It’s a huge festival to bring to Liverpool,” says Smith about LIFT.
“It’s an opportunity to see good amateur theatre because it’s probably the best of the best coming from around the world.”
Cinco de Mayo will include food, drinks and customs unique to Mexico. It’s set to take place at the Seaside Recreation and Community Centre in Beach Meadows at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 5.
People can buy tickets from Lanes Privateer Inn or Country Junction.
The Liverpool International Theatre Festival, which happens every other year, is slated to take place from May 16 to 20.
