YANA WANA’S LEGEND OF THE BLUEBONNET

By Roxanne Schroeder-Arce and María F. Rocha

Music by Héctor Martinez Morales

Co-Produced with Cara Mía Theatre Company

 

March 23 – April 8, 2018

Recommended for ages 6 and up

 

Ten-year-old María is having trouble in school, so her mom sends her to stay with her Coahuiltecan grandmother in distant Laredo for discipline and perspective.  There, María is told an ancient story of young Yana Wana who followed a revered deer to find water to save her people. Yana Wana’s story exposes? an amazing and unknown ancestral connection to the bluebonnet that gives María a renewed sense of self and family pride.  You may have read one version in school; now we invite you to come see the legend through the eyes of Yana Wana in this world premiere.  A beautiful, original play that illustrates the power of heritage and the value of one’s own story – especially one as ancient as the petroglyphs of Texas.

 

Ticket prices: $17-30
