VALHALLA, N.Y. -- Valhalla High School's World Language Department instructors Richard O'Riley and Roxanne Franquelli-Beras led a group of college-level Spanish students to the Repertorio Espanol in Gramercy to view the production "La Zapatera Prodigiosa."

They took the trip Dec. 9.

The play's title translates to "The Shoemaker's Prodigious Wife" in English. It was written by Spanish playwright Federico Garcia Lorca.

"La Zapatera Prodigiosa" tells the story of a 53-year-old shoemaker and his scandalous 18-year-old wife. Throughout the climatic ups and downs of their relationship, the two find a way to reconcile their differences, and are able to save their marriage.

"La Zapatera Prodigiosa" is one of the few comedies Garcia wrote during his brief yet illustrious career.

Following the play, the students visited a local Cuban restaurant for a meal. While there, they had the opportunity to practice their Spanish skills and sample Caribbean fare.
