Somewhere Over the Border

This is an online digital musical as part of our Digital Season.

Inspired by Reina Quijada’s real life journey from El Salvador to the US and by L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Somewhere Over the Border embraces the factual and the fantastical in its depiction of one young girl’s pursuit of the American dream. As Reina travels north to the Mexican border, she gathers friends, faces down dangers and holds tight to the memory of the little boy she left behind. Set in the 1970s and propelled by Cumbia, Mexican Mariachi Boleros, American Rock and Hip Hop, this new musical is both fable and family history – and a testament to the determination born of love.

*The digital musical will be available beginning 8 PM on May 4th through 8 PM May 8th
