The Los Angeles Theatre Academy opened up a series of 4 shows throughout August at the Elysian Park Amphitheatre featuring performances of “Tales of My Grandmother Chavela,” “Silent Films”, and “Cri Cri Songs” featuring the best of Francisco Gabilondo Soler’s “Cri-Cri.”

Directed by Alejandra Flores of the Los Angeles Theatre Academy, a cast of over twenty children and professional actors performed five different songs from the musical legacy of “Cri Cri” to their parents and guests at the Elysian Park Amphitheatre.

The performances were opened by Melinda Ramos, Field Deputy of LA City Councilman Gilbert Cedillo of the 1st District. Special Guest Francisco S Gabilondo, 1st Grandson of the creator of "Cri-Cri" (Francisco Gabilondo Soler) commended the children for their performances and signed copies of a special custom edition of "The Way to Happiness" featuring the "Cri Cri" character on the cover of book for all in attendance. The next 3 shows are scheduled for August 2, 16 and 23 at the Elysian Park Amphitheatre starting at 10am.

Francisco Gabilondo Soler, the creator of Cri-Cri is considered the Walt Disney for Hispanic countries and today is regarded as a national legend in Mexico. Cri-Cri appeared several years ago in Southern California on the cover of The Way To Happiness, a non-religious moral code with 21 precepts based on common sense, written by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard "to arrest the moral decline in our society."

The Way to Happiness, a non religious moral code, includes such precepts as "Love and Help Children," "Be Industrious" and "Try to Treat Others as You Would Want Them to Treat You." "The Way to Happiness" is the first moral code based wholly on common sense, originally published in 1981, its purpose is to help arrest the current moral decline in society and restore integrity and trust to humankind.

The Way to Happiness (http://www.twth.org) further holds a Guinness Record as the world’s single most translated non-religious book in the world. "The Way to Happiness" was written in 1981 by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
