About The Event

Teatro Vista presents Somewhere Over The Border with Book, Lyrics and Music by Brian Quijada, directed by Denise Yvette Serna.

Inspired  by the real life journey of the author’s mother (Reina Quijada) from El  Salvador to the US and by L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,  Somewhere Over the Border embraces the factual and the fantastical in  its depiction of one young girl’s pursuit of the American dream. As  Reina travels north to the Mexican border, she gathers friends, faces  down dangers, and holds tight to the memory of the little boy she left  behind. Set in the 1970s and propelled by Cumbia, Mexican Mariachi  Boleros, American Rock and Hip Hop, this new musical is both fable and  family history—and a testament to the determination born of love.

Special thanks to Teatro Vista for offering their special pricing to the Chicago Latina Moms community in order to bring the Latino community to the theater. We also thank CLM Nina Sanchez of 51st Ward Books who will be providing goody bags for any children in attendance.
