Bocón, the current University Theatre production at The University of Texas-Pan American, will run Dec. 1-3 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 4 at 2 p.m. in the Albert L. Jeffers Theatre, located in the Communication Arts Building. Bocón is a well known children's play based in part on Mexican folk legends, but goes beyond that to tell the story of a boy who has to leave his village to find his voice and become free. The four people pictured, in masks, represent the villagers who, like the little boy, are oppressed. In the end the little boy escapes and discovers his true self and real happiness. Its director, Brian Warren, advises that the play "is not just for kids, but for the child in all of us." The performances are open to children of all ages. Tickets are free to season subscribers. UTPA faculty, students and staff get two free admissions with each ID. For others, the tickets are $3 each regardless of age. For additional information, call the Box Office at 956/381-3581.
