TEATRO VISIÓN'S 2023 YOUTH PRODUCTION
March 30 - April 2, 2023
at the Mexican Heritage Plaza Theater
adapted by Anne Ludlum and David QuicksallDon Quixote and Sancho Panza ride again! Here they are guided by their creator, Miguel de Cervantes, in person. In this "buddies on the road" saga, the intrepid Don Quixote and his loyal squire, Sancho Panza, are spurred on by Cervantes to battle giants—or are they windmills? Rescue princesses—or are they swineherds? Attack armies—or are they sheep? Their world, the vital, dangerous La Mancha region of 17th-century Spain, is peopled with fools and shysters, nobles and priests, merchants and actors. Idealistic Don Quixote and pragmatic Sancho Panza learn to deal with the unexpected and the inexplicable as they travel and quarrel through the arid plains of La Mancha. Their friendship deepens as their adventures grow more challenging and complex
based on Don Quijote de la Mancha, Parts I and II, by Miguel de Cervantes
directed by Rodrigo García

When Beatriz shows up at her 16-year-old daughter Olivia’s house at 4 a.m. and invites her on an epic road trip, they haven’t seen each other in four years. But Beatriz is an undocumented immigrant about to be deported to Mexico, and time is running out.
