When 9-year-old Mariela’s performance at a school talent show goes wrong, she wishes not to be different anymore.
Transported to the InBetween, the land of the ancestors, she meets a sassy owl, an emotional tortoise, a singing prairie dog, an honorable snake, and a mischievous centipede.
A bilingual story of the importance of self-acceptance and the powerful medicine that is carried by ancestral teachings, brought to life by a youth cast.
Becoming (MAR) is performed bilingually in English and Spanish.
Attendees must wear a mask at all times and show proof of full vaccination and booster. Visit www.teatrovision.org/covid for our full COVID-19 safety policy.
