Art Basel is about to begin and Mariana, director of a swanky modern gallery, has a big problem on her hands. Her showroom is an active crime scene. When Mariana’s movie star mother tries to save the show, everything gets hilariously complicado. This fast-paced, cafecito-infused comedy about art and success—and mothers and daughters—is a joyous snapshot of Cuban and Colombian-American culture set in the heart of Miami’s Wynwood Arts District.

Recommended for students aged 13 and older

Shakespeare may be the OG, but this crew takes The Tragedy of Othello to a whole new level in this lit Hip Hop remix. Over original bars and rhyme, an onstage DJ spins Shakespeare’s legendary masterpiece of jealousy, revenge and passion. A New York Times Critics’ Pick, Othello: The Remix has a catalog of platinum accolades and press, making it the most celebrated reinvention of the Bard in years.

Recommended for high school-aged and older students

Panto Alicia in Wonderland


December 1–December 31, 2023

Student Matinee:

  • Friday, December 15, at 10 a.m.

Stages’ panto tradition gives the classic fairy tale a fresh new Houston spin! As her quinceañera approaches, Alice (not Alicia) questions the tradition and pushes away her culture. But once she falls down the rabbit hole, the magical world around her celebrates all that makes her Alicia. Created by Houston’s own TEATRX—and studded with parodies of Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Bad Bunny, and more—Panto Alicia in Wonderland topples headfirst into wonder and fun.

Recommended for students of all ages
