STUDENT MATINEE PERFORMANCES
Spring 2019

Teatro Vista offers distinct productions for middle and high school students. We produce classics as well as contemporary plays with the goal of highlighting Latino/a talent and stories. Our productions engage students with relevant works presented from an unique point of view.  


ROMEO and JULIET
BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

Through the hate of warring factions, in defiance of their families and in secrecy from their closest friends, an ill-fated young couple risks all they have to be together. We perform Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy of star-crossed lovers with resounding life, passion, laughter, tears, sword fighting and, perhaps, the most romantic poetry in all of literature!

SOUND + FURY
BY MARVIN QUIJADA & GABE RUIZ

Teatro Vista Acting Ensemble members Marvin Quijada and Gabe Ruiz tell original stories and present experiments using technology most of us carry in our pockets and backpacks everyday. With a cellphone and an iPad, these iOS musicians bridge the distance between immersive technological environments and the most classic analog format: Theater. 

Sound + Fury is built to be theater for a YouTube generation, packing hilarious, heartfelt, and action-packed stories into sketches that deconstruct assumptions of what theater can do, while highlighting universal themes weaved through electronically driven Latin, house, and hip-hop music. Much of the electronic music is performed live with Marvin Quijada’s being one of Chicago’s sole iOS Finger Drumming performers.

A sold-out audience at Steppenwolf Theater leapt to their feet after a show that was part hip-hop concert, house music concert, neo-noir radio play, physical/clown story telling, poetry reading, even opera. The night of relentlessly disparate genres coalesce into a revelation that Theatre is able to contain them all.
