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 hosting us and the special group pricing of $40/ticket for the Chicago Latina Moms community. We're so excited to partner in order to bring the Latino community closer to Latina theater.
