Rating: 10/10, would see again

For my first school play, I attended “Bocón!” performed by the Morton Ranch Theatre Club, which set the bar for future performances.

For starters, the characters were played well. Each character had a different personality that was showcased through the actors. My favorite character had to be La Llorona, the weeping spirit that scares children into their homes. I always laughed whenever she screeched on and off stage about her long lost children at the most unexpected moments. La Llorona is a very unique character. I didn’t expect her to end up as dramatic or sarcastic with a kind-hearted spirit, but she is much more than the weeping woman that cries.

The costumes were gorgeous. The theatre group definitely represented Mexican culture throughout the play with the props, the costumes and the lights they had on stage. The color in the performance was definitely one of my favorite things about the play. It was visually pleasing to the eye. There are no words that I can use to describe how vivid the play was to watch.

Mistakes are bound to happen, but none of them could compare to the fact that all these students put everything they had into the play to make it an absolutely amazing performance. With them, the meaning of the story took on a new form.
