Childsplay presents Selena Maria Sings by Miriam Gonzales, Music by Daniel French at Herberger Theater Center – Stage West on Saturday and Sundays, October 2-31, 2021. Selena Maria Sings tells a story of music, family, immense love, and the strength it takes to be yourself.
Named after Selena Quintanilla, queen of the Tejano music scene, Selena Maria has so much to live up to. Like her namesake, Selena Maria’s passion is music—but her heart belongs to indie sounds and songwriting. Her mom, a Selena superfan, wants her to be all the things her beloved icon stood for (on and off the stage), but Selena Maria struggles to be herself while she’s trying to be someone else. With the help of her prima Cissy and a few others along the way, Selena Maria begins to find her own voice. Selena Maria Sings tells a story of music, family, immense love, and the strength it takes to be yourself.
