Dress rehearsals underway for "Lady in Blue" production

San Angelo, TX - The Jumano Native American story about the "Lady in Blue" will soon be brought to life as a theatre performance at the Murphey Performance Hall.

There's no dialogue in this theatre production, much of the communication is done using body movements and through song.

"We both find that soulful meaning with Maria," says Silvaria Lawson — who is cast as the "Spirit of Maria." "We both really feel the message she's trying to portray."

This performance is the culmination of San Angelo's Historic Beginnings celebration — honoring the legend of the Lady in Blue.

Jumano Native Americans believe a woman dressed in blue once appeared to them — preaching the catholic faith in their native language.

Cast members are now tasked with sharing this story through ballet and song.

"The range is super crazy," says Alexis Diaz — who plays the body and voice of the Sor Maria De Jesus de Agreda. "Some times I'm having to sing super low notes while other times I have to blow those top notes off."

Friday night's performance will take place at the Murphey Performance Hall at 7:30 p.m.

A statue will be unveiled honoring the Lady in Blue on Sunday afternoon.
