UTPA-Theatre for Young Audiences presents Mariachi Girl by Roxanne Shroeder-Arce.
Mariachi Girl tells the story of Carmencita, an 8-year-old girl who dreams of becoming a mariachi.
Her father Luis, on the other hand, is much attached to his family's mariachi traditions and roots and does not approve of women being part of a mariachi group.
It will run May 2-4 at 7 p.m., May 4 and 5 at 2 p.m. at the Albert L. Jeffers Theatre at the Arts and Humanities (ARHU) Building on the corner of University Drive and Sugar Road (formally the Communication Arts and Sciences (COAS) Building).
Children of all ages are welcome to attend.
General admission is $3 per person regardless of age. The box office opens one hour prior to each performance.
