Barrio Grrrl Performance and Discussion – Sedona
July 13, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 2:00pm, repeating until July 14, 2018
Spunky 9-year-old Ana is faced with a very big decision. On the one hand, as her alter-ego, Barrio Grrrl, with her invisible sidekick, Amazing Voice, she’s pretty busy preserving justice in the barrio and protecting her neighborhood. On the other hand, in the world where Ana lives with her abuelo and misses her mom who is far, far away in Iraq, reality is sneaking up on her. It’s time for Ana to decide what/s most important: being a superhero or a girl who works little miracles in real life. Pulitzer Prize- and Tony-winner Quiara Alegría Hudes and Grammy and Tony-winner Bill Sherman give audiences a funny and warmly truthful play that will make hearts sing. This production was made possible my AZ Humanities. And produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing Company, Inc., of Woodstock, Illinois. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes. The cast includes: Sedona residents Kaya Kenney, Luna Kenney, Fryda Hernandez, Adahlia Witteman, Skyrah Wilmer, Bronwyn Bosman, Parker Furlong, Savanna Royal, and Flagstaff resident Audrey Young.
Performance dates: July 13th, 2018 @7pm, July 14th,2018 @ 2pm.
