Lark Timon is no stranger to failure as it looms large in her filmmaking career. Plagued by debt and professional disappointment, she chances upon a potentially career-changing opportunity only to be confronted by questions about her art, her family, and her identity as a queer mestiza.

Featuring the first majority-Filipino cast in Utah history: Joy Asiado, Jayna Balzer, Lily Hye Soo Dixon, April Fossen, and Carlos Nobleza Posas.

Designed by Emma Belnap (lighting), Iris Salazar (set), Cheryl Ann Cluff (sound), Arika Schockmel (props), and Aaron Swenson (costumes). Intimacy Director Kimi Handa Brown. COVID-19 Safety Officer Kallie Filanda. Stage managed by David Knoell. Show art by Avery Franklin. Set Construction/Electrician Sydney Shoell. Directed by Jerry Rapier.

From the author of THE EDIBLE COMPLEX, THE POST OFFICE, and PILOT PROGRAM.


Content Advisory: MESTIZA, or MIXED frankly discusses issues of race and portrays the impact of a hate crime.


COVID-19 Safety: We are equally committed to the safety of patrons and artists.

Due to the intimate and unique nature of the Studio Theatre, the following protocols are in place through June 19, 2022.

Proof of vaccination (including booster) - a photo of your vaccination card or Docket are acceptable - and well-fitting, worn-over-your-nose, KN95 or N95 masks are required. Masks must be worn from the time you enter the Rose Wagner until you exit. We will happily supply you with a mask!

All members of the Cast and Creative Team of MESTIZA, or MIXED are fully vaccinated (including boosters) and are tested weekly.

All members of the Creative and Front-of-House Teams will be masked at all times. The Cast will be masked except when performing.

Seating is limited to 28 seats per performance on three sides of the stage and seat is a minimum of 6' from the action onstage at all times (see image below).

Our HEPA filter, designed for 3,700 square feet, is in use the entire time anyone is in the 1,938 square foot Studio Theatre. We named her Phyllis. She's silent and filters to .01 microns.

No food or drink permitted.

All members of the Cast, Creative, and Front-of-House Teams will conduct daily symptom and temperature checks before arriving at the Rose Wagner. We ask that you do the same.
