The Magical Pinata
The Magical Pinata
Book and lyrics by Karen Zacarías. Music by Deborah Wicks La Puma.

Cast: 2m., 2w. (plus 6 either gender. 2m., 2w. with doubling.) A seemingly plain clay pot magically transports Cucha, a selfish and lonely girl, from her town of Zapotoco, Mexico, to a mysterious jungle filled with eccentric characters. Using her knowledge of English and Spanish, Cucha encounters Parrot Rivera, a jungle muralist who paints the future; Señor Chapulin, a soccer star with the heart of the present; and Burro Burrito, a farmer who plows the past. But the evil Monkey King and his silly Sidekick know the clay pot is really a magical piñata and scheme to steal it from her. Through Cucha's journey, she discovers the magic of the mundane, the roots of cultural pride and the power of sharing. The accompaniment for performance (played by a mariachi band) is available on CD (optional). Area staging. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.

An optional accompaniment CD is available for use with this show. See Rental Info for details.
