Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday, Feb. 1 at the Texas State Theatre Box Office. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students with a Texas State ID.

Con Mis Manos (With My Hands) is a powerful new drama that premiered at the American College Theatre Festival last year and received rave reviews and numerous awards. It tells the story of the Gutierrez family, who live a happy, uneventful existence in the Rio Grande Valley until they have to contend with the mother’s sudden illness. Spanish and English are interwoven as the play offers insights--both serious and comical--into the emotional dynamics among the family members. The guest director for the show is Luis Munoz, a former student of Texas State and the state’s University Interscholastic League One-Act Play Director.
