El Padre: The Story of Hidalgo's Revolution

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-09-15

Trust the great and powerful SAY Sí to dovetail its accomplished youth arts programming with Hispanic Heritage Month and the centenary of the Mexican Revolution. Its Teatro ALAS high school performance company and Teatro ALAS middle school troupe will perform their original play: El Padre: The Story of Hidalgo’s Revolution, a theatrical retrato of the revolutionary priest as a young boy. True, his history-changing grito fomented not the 1910 Mexican Revolution but the 1810 War of Independence against Spanish colonial authorities … which makes it a bicentennial commemoration, come to think of it. And when you combine deep-rooted history with fresh creative talent, the effect is nothing short of you-know-what. SAY Sí Black Box Theater, 1518 S. Alamo, Sept 17 - 25, Fri & Sat @ 8pm, Sun Matinee @ 3pm, Admission:  $5 Adults, Students, & Senior Citizens
