Overview of Idea

:

Mariachi Girl is a bilingual musical for young audiences that will be performed the month of October/November 2012 to over 4,000 Austin area students in grades 2-6. 85% of the students are from low income households.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

The funds from this grant will go directly to providing free tickets to students in low income schools.
Mariachi Girl is about eight-year-old Carmencita dreams of being in her father’s Mariachi band, but her father insists that mariachi groups can only include men. When Carmencita she reads a book about a famous female mariachi it expands her world and notion what is possible. Full of vibrant original mariachi music, this play explores how one girl can challenge her identity in a modern society while embracing her rich heritage.
Children especially need to see a diversity of stories on stage and Latino youth need to see stories and characters that reflect their lived experience.
