Itzel: The Pirate Queen by José Cruz González is a new play about an adventurous Mayan girl named Itzel whose world is forever changed when Spanish marauders steal away her little brother Dacey. Itzel must sail across an ocean to save him but is captured by the infamous privateer Captain Blood, who sails the high seas seeking Spanish treasure. Years pass, and through a series of adventurous exploits, Itzel becomes a well-known privateer. The Spanish are out to get her. In a great battle at sea, her brother Dacey, now a defender of Spain, defeats his sister (who he has long forgotten). Will Itzel go the gallows or convince her brother that she is his sister and change the course of history. Best enjoyed by ages 10 and up. All tickets are FREE!
