NPYA Presents: "Itzel: The Pirate Queen"
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 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 Itzel becomes a well-known privateer. 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?
Rehearsed readings on Saturday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 16 at 3 p.m. Tickets are available at the theatre’s box office beginning an hour before each reading.
