The intrepid members of our touring troupe are hunkering down for the premiere of Searching for Aztlán, coming to Milagro this weekend, and you can join them in the trenches of identity and history!
Written and directed by Lakin Valdez (of El Teatro Campesino, which will be presenting our touring production in May), this play takes as point of departure the sociopolitical turmoil of Arizona surrounding Mexican American Studies programs. Ancient and not so ancient history is also visited, from the mythical birthplace of the Aztecs to the homeland of the Chicano movement.
Here’s 5 ways you can join us on this exploration of the past and search for identity:
Jan. 7: Educators interested in the themes are encouraged to attend our special FREE preview event for dress rehearsal; you can decide if the play is appropriate to bring to your school or send your students to see it at our theatre during an evening or matinee performance. Sign up here!
Jan. 9: Join the search party and stay for the other party! The official opening performance will be followed by a great reception hosted by our friends from La Bonita! Tickets available online and on our Facebook page.
Jan.-Nov.: Catch the touring production on the road during their national tour!
And don’t forget that Milagro offers senior, student, veteran and group discounts. We also participate in the Arts for All program: present your SNAP card (in person) to purchase up to 4 tickets for only $5 each!
Get your tickets today, and let the haboob carry you away to the land of Aztlán!
