Barrio Stories

by award winning playwrights, Elaine Romero, Virginia Grise, and Martin Zimmerman Directed by Marc David Pinate

Staged outdoors on the grounds of the Tucson Convention Center, this theatrical spectacle brings to life the oral histories of Tucson’s original Mexican American neighborhood demolished with the building of the convention center in the 1960s. Precious memories come to life as audience members take a theatrical tour of what used to be the bustling epicenter of commerce and public celebrations for Tucson’s Mexican-American community (some seating is available.)

Four vignettes with performance installations encountered throughout the plaza culminate in an interactive post show pachanga: featuring folklorico and mariachi youth ensembles with interactive art and audio booths for all ages. Food for sale!


Staged outdoors on the grounds of the Tucson Convention Center 260 S Church Ave, Tucson, AZ 85701. Two entrances: off of parking lot A, Church St. and parking lot C, Granada St.
