Join Stormfire Productions cast and crew for the premiere of the first episode of a new fantasy audio drama about twins on the border reconnecting with their indigenous roots and their family’s forgotten history.

Series Summary: Andrea and Mateo Ortiz are their grandfather’s pride and joy, but they can’t help but cause each other trouble. After a face-to-face with an ancient pitáo (an ancient god) who has forgotten his name, the twins are sent on an adventure through the Underworld and face restless spirits, as well as their long lost parents. This series is targeted for ages 8 and up!

The event will also include a silent auction, offering a variety of packages and items from Mexican and Mexican-American artists, businesses, and artisans. Additional entertainment and details to be announced closer to the event date.
95% of all ticket and auction proceeds will go towards the funding of the full 12-episode series run, which includes paying voice actors, the writer, and the sound designer.
5% of ticket and auction sales will be donated to Tenants and Workers United, a nonprofit and advocacy group organizing low-income communities of color in Northern Virginia.
