Flyer for La Mariposa and Breaking Through

We're thrilled to welcome hundreds of K-12 students from schools throughout the greater bay area to our student matinee of La Mariposa and Breaking Through. Learn more about our student matinee program here.

In La Mariposa, a young Panchito arrives in the U.S. with his family, and finds his way amid a life of constant moving and in a school where he doesn’t understand a word his teacher says. As he watches his classroom caterpillar transform into a butterfly, he too begins to learn to spread his wings.

Breaking Through follows him to his teenage years, where Panchito comes to love school and reading. A dream to become a teacher awakens in him. But when his responsibility to his family clashes against his own desires, he must navigate the competing priorities that face him.
