Mariachi Girl is an uplifting bilingual family drama about reaching for your dreams and is filled with vibrant original mariachi music

"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
