The legend of La Llorona will come to life this weekend thanks to the San Elizario Genealogy and Historical Society.

There’s nothing quite like community theatre and coming up this weekend you can head out to support the cast of the San Elizario Players Theatre Company in their latest production La Llorona – The Legend.

This weekend, La Llorona – The Legend will come to life on stage at the Main Street Stage Saloon in San Elizario and admission is free.

The Mexican folktale of La Llorona (Weeping Woman) stems back hundreds of years about a young woman who drowned her children in a river to spite her cheating husband. As she realizes what she has done she throws herself into the river to die alongside her children. The legend says that her soul wanders weeping over her dead children and causes misfortune to anyone who crosses her path especially children who she is said to kidnap.

The San Elizario Players Theater Company will perform the legendary story of La Llorona – The Legend on Saturday, September 12, 2020.
