Sugar Skull! A Día de los Muertos Musical Adventure
presented by Mexico Beyond Mariachi
Twelve-year-old Vita Flores is a born-and-raised New Yorker struggling to connect with her Mexican heritage. But when a spirited Día de Muertos decoration decides to help out, Vita must navigate a colorful and mysterious cementerio populated with trickster chaneques, colorful calacas, ancient ancestors, a bewildering bruja, and even the famous Catrina Calavera. With an excitable candy skeleton as her friend and guide, Vita discovers the true meaning of Día de Muertos through stories, songs, and so much more. Sugar Skull is a magical, musical adventure for the whole family that jubilates in the celebration of family, tradition, and LIFE!
Featuring a company of gifted musicians and dancers, this colorful stage production is the perfect fall entertainment for youth and family audiences alike.
