Señora Tortuga presented by The Texas Performing Arts and Magik Theatre

Saturday, December 5, 2020, 9:00 PM

Texas Performing Arts presents the Magik Theatre’s production of Señora Tortuga, a play performed under the Texas Big Top on the Bass Concert Hall Plaza on Saturday, December 5 at 1 pm. Appropriate for all ages, the play is especially suited for children in first through fourth grades. The Magik Theatre is San Antonio’s professional family theatre company. The performance is presented in partnership with the University of Texas Department of Mexican American and Latina/o Studies and Austin’s Teatro Vivo. Special support is provided by Marquee Event Rentals and the H-E-B Tournament of Champions.

Señora Tortuga is an English/Spanish bilingual play for all ages that celebrates the confluence of two cultures and languages using the wisdom tales of Latin American cultures to give hope to a family faced with too much reality. It tells the story of young Pedro and his family who make their home in a barn on the Mexican border. Pedro complains of having nothing and brings his mother many headaches. On one occasion, she invites a hungry woman to share the family dinner. But this Señora returns time and again to eat and tell fantastical stories of the enchanted serpent and Cucuy of Latin American legend, filling Pedro’s nights with heroic, yet frightening dreams. Surprisingly, Pedro is learning from these wisdom tales, but his mother is suspicious of the Señora until it is revealed that Señora Tortuga holds the thread that ties their past dreams to their future.
