Written by Miriam Gonzales, SELENA MARIA SINGS follows the story of Selena Maria, a young girl named after Selena Quintanilla, queen of the Tejano music scene. Like her namesake, Selena Maria's passion is music-but her heart belongs to indie sounds and songwriting. Her mom, a Selena superfan, wants her to be all the things her beloved icon stood for (on and off the stage), but Selena Maria struggles to be herself while she's trying to be someone else. With the help of her prima Cissy and a few others along the way, Selena Maria begins to find her own voice. Selena Maria Sings tells a story of music, family, immense love, and the strength it takes to be yourself.


SELENA MARIA SINGS features Kariana Sanchez as Selena Maria, Andrea Morales as Felly/Mrs. Coleman, Celena Vera Morgan as Vicky/Olga/Moon Goddess, Michael Salinas as Rudy/Herman/Minion and Sedona Valdez as Cissy. SELENA MARIA SINGS is directed by Melissa Crespo and is recommended for kids 9 and up.
