According to young Carmencita's father, mariachi singing is meant solely for men—that's always been the family tradition, and that's how it should stay. But rules can't quell plucky Cita's dreams of sharing the stage with her papa. Inspired by a book about a famous female mariachi, she charges forth in her quest to honor her musical heritage, challenging her father's deep-rooted beliefs along the way. This new bilingual musical from University of Texas director and playwright Roxanne Schroeder-Arce immerses audiences in a drama of family bonds while weaving in vital lessons about cultural heritage. It also packs the uplifting power of an underdog tale, fueled by songwriter Hector Martinez Morales's spirited numbers.
Dallas Children's Theater
In 1984, the founding of Dallas Children's Theater ended North Texas's drought of professional family theater. And 20 years later, Time Magazine declared it one of the top five family theaters in the entire country. Now, after three decades, founders Robyn Flatt and Dennis Vincent's creation has entertained and educated nearly 4 million patrons—enough to fill one thousand clown cars—not just in Texas, but across the world. Generating this success, in part, is how the Theater's productions spotlight cultural diversity, and are typically accompanied by study guides for teachers and students. Then there's the variety of productions, which range from plays to puppetry, and the stunning production value of their large-scale works, which is the reason they've been designated as an American Masterpieces Touring Artist by the National Endowment for the Arts.
