About The House on Mango Street
What is special about this production of The House on Mango Street?
As our first annual youth production, The House on Mango Street will feature an amazing cast of local young performers age 12 to 18!
Is The House on Mango Street appropriate for all ages?
The House on Mango Street is a classic coming-of-age story about a 12-year-old young woman that addresses many of the serious issues that young people face growing up, including abuse, sexual violence, and the death of a relative. We recommend The House on Mango Street for young people in fourth grade and above, but we encourage you to make individual decisions. You can learn more about the themes of The House on Mango Street in our study guide.
I don’t know very much about Latinx/Chicanx culture. Will I enjoy The House on Mango Street?
Yes! Chicanx/Latinx theater is a wonderful way to connect to your own culture OR to learn about a culture that is not your own. Welcome to Teatro Visión!
Which ticket price should I choose to pay?
That is really up to you. We recommend our Regular Ticket Price of $20, because that helps us to pay for this production and continue to create powerful works of Chicanx theater, but you should choose the price that places the right value for YOU on this experience. Read more about our ticket pricing policy here.
Do I get anything extra if I pay the higher ticket prices?
No. Whichever price you choose, you get the same general admission ticket.
Should I buy my tickets in advance or can I buy them at the door?
The box office will be open for on-site ticket sales an hour and a half before show time. We expect some of the performances of The House on Mango Street to sell out, so we do recommend that you buy your tickets in advance.
Planning your visit
When should I arrive?
The house opens a half hour before every performance. Because all seating is general admission, we recommend that you arrive early so you have the best choice of seats.
Where should I eat beforehand?
There are several good restaurants in the neighborhood around the Mexican Heritage Plaza. We recommend El Pirrin (1900 E San Antonio St., San José, CA 95116) and Chalateco (1694 Alum Rock Ave., San José, CA 95116).
There are two parking lots attached to the School of Arts and Culture at the Mexican Heritage Plaza – one off of King Road and the other off of Alum Rock Avenue. Arriving early will also help you find a good parking space.
How do I get there?
The School of Arts and Culture at the Mexican Heritage Plaza is easy to access from 101 and from 280/680. From 101, get off at the Alum Rock exit and go east on Santa Clara / Alum Rock. The Mexican Heritage Plaza will be on your right, just after you cross King. From 280/680, get off at the King Road exit and go north on King. The Mexican Heritage Plaza will be on your right, just after you cross San Antonio.
