I Come From Arizona at Children's Theatre Company

CTCArizona2018Nov. 16, 2018
7 p.m.

Children's Theatre Company
2400 3rd Avenue South
Minneapolis, MN 55404

Join us for this sensory-friendly performance of I Come From Arizona. Gabi Castillo, a bright, 14-year-old Mexican-American girl living on the South Side of Chicago, is accepted into a very different, elite high school. Through her Global Perspectives class, she learns secrets about her past and her parents, discovers her own inherited strength, and begins to understand what it means to take risks. In today’s world of immigration raids and Dreamers, fear and uncertainty, Gabi inspires a modern-day lesson in bravery, courage, and finding power in what seems like a powerless situation.Click here for more information and to order tickets.

A limited number of volunteer seats are available for this performance. Volunteers welcome guests, hand out information from the AuSM resource table in the lobby, and often help with intermission activities. Volunteers are asked to arrive one hour prior to the show and are given a free ticket to watch. Click here to volunteer for this performance.
