Synopsis

Ten-year-old Carmencita dreams of being a mariachi singer and one day joining in performance with her father. However, her father clings to a long-held family tradition of male-only mariachis. When Carmencita's teacher offers her a book about a female mariachi, everything changes for "Cita" as she sees a possibility of her dream becoming a reality. Can she celebrate her own heritage and expand her father's view of the world? Mariachi Girl is an uplifting bilingual family drama about reaching for your dreams and is filled with vibrant original mariachi music.

Media Reviews

"Easy to see why this vibrant musical tradition summons Cita like a siren she can't resist." -Dallas Morning News GuideLIVE

"The theme of the play centers on positive Mexican cultural identity and the perpetuation of traditions in spite of living in the United States. Remembering where one comes from, while embracing new opportunities for growth, is also central. The clear message is the importance of having a positive self-image for young girls of any ethnicity or cultural background." -TheaterJones
