About the show:
Soledad is the child of migrant farm workers. She loves the universe. And she loves her family. Soledad goes where her family goes, where the crops will grow. With every move comes a new school and the struggle to make new friends. The imaginative Soledad finds solace in books, and in her constant companion Luna — the moon — who follows her wherever she goes. When Soledad meets Frida and Emilio, she finds her first chance at human friends her own age. She must challenge the world she knows and discover that “Taking risks is hard to do, but taking risks builds courage too.”
Filament Theatre believes that the diversity of our community is a fundamental strength of our region. Our mission is best fulfilled when we embrace diversity as a value and a practice. We maintain that achieving diversity requires an enduring commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms and behaviors. Throughout our work, we will support diversity in all of its forms, encompassing but not limited to age, disability status, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender, race, religion and sexual orientation.
