    The famous 19th century gambling hall of Doña Tules was patronized by soldiers, merchants, traders, conspirators, priests, and dignitaries. This “rags-to-riches” story told from this Spanish woman’s perspective with drama and music that will capture your heart. A Meet and Greet will follow the performance.

    This performance is being filmed by students, amateurs and professionals to highlight areas of the forthcoming feature film, “New Mexico, the musical”. The historical musical is being proposed as a supplement to New Mexico’s tourism promotion available in museums, libraries and cultural attractions. Most significantly, it is being developed as enrichment to the New Mexico history curriculum with lesson plans and academic activities for high school and college students.
    Had it not been for Doña Tules, the U. S. Army and Colonel Steven Kearny would have been halted in their tracks, not able to proceed to Santa Fe, on their march to old Mexico and California. Governor Manuel Armijo would have retained his power in the Mexican territory. As a gambling hall salon owner on the Santa Fe Trail, Doña Tules came into possession of riches and knowledge, becoming a peddler of influence and indulgences, playing a momentous role in confluence of events that led to statehood, a remarkable accomplishment for an impoverished Hispanic woman while living under the flags of three nations. According to noted New Mexico historian, Marc Simmons, “Doña Tules was the most influential woman in territorial New Mexico.” Now, more than a century later, the time has arrived to pay tribute to Doña Maria Gertrudes Barcello (Tules). Cast and crew auditions are being scheduled to commence this year.
