The Old Globe Theatre marks Día de los Muertos on Sunday with a free, family-minded event that includes arts-and-crafts stations, face painting, a drumming workshop and a mini-parade.

And at noon comes a Spanish-language performance of the Day of the Dead-themed play “Hermanas (Sisters),” written by the San Diego-based theater artist Daniel Jáquez; the performance will be repeated in English at 1 p.m.

The events are all part of the Globe’s “Axis” outreach program, which offers free cultural events for the community.
