This project entailed the selection, background research and documentation, design, casting, direction and post-production analysis of Shafter High School's production of Alicia in Wonder Tierra by Silvia Gonzalez S. Documentation includes research analysis of the play and an evaluation of the play as a production vehicle for Shafter High School. The analysis includes a discussion of the use of a non-traditional play to attract an audience in a largely Hispanic community.
