Just Like Us

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Just Like Us, a play Written by Karen Zacarías and Directed by Anita Reyes.

The outstanding production entertained and educated audience members in four performances that began last Thursday and ran through Sunday, Oct. 9th.

The play is based on Helen Thorpe’s bestselling book, this documentary-style play follows four Latina teenage girls in Denver—two of whom are documented and two who are not—through young adulthood.

Their close-knit friendships begin to unravel when immigration status dictates the girls’ opportunities or lack thereof. When a political firestorm arises, each girl’s future becomes increasingly complicated.

Keep up the good work and we look forward to your next production next semester!
