From the team that brought you Cruzando, brings you Basilica, a new play by Mando Alvarado, directed by Michael Ray Escamilla. The developmental production will have its South Texas premiere: May 12 to May 29, at STC’s Cooper Center for Communication Arts.
Basilica follows the story of the Garza family from San Juan, Texas. They are a nice working class family. And like every church going family, they strive to be the best they can be. But when Gilbert Gonzalez returns as the new Pastor for the Basilica, everyone will be confronted with who they really are and true redemption will escape all but one.
Directed by Helen Hayes Award winner, Michael Ray Escamilla, the cast of Basilica includes Mando Alvarado (Cop Out), Gabriel Martinez, DeAnna Daniel Garza, Marcos Martinez, Kaylah Killian, Jaime Garza and Gaby Jones.
The play will be performed at 7:30 p.m., Thursday through Saturday, with an additional performance at 2 p.m. on Saturday, and a 3 p.m. performance on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/17115. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students and military.
