Poway OnStage Concert
SUGAR SKULL! A Dia de Muertos Musical Adventure is a touring bilingual/bicultural musical for multi-generational audiences that uses traditional regional music and dance from Mexico that asks the question “Why throw a party for the dead?” Twelve-year-old Vita Flores thinks her family has gone loco planning a celebration for deceased loved ones. But when a spirited candy skeleton suddenly springs to life, Vita finds herself on a magical, musical journey to unravel the true meaning of Día de los Muertos. With her new skeletal friend, Vita dances with ancient ancestors, sings with a sorrowful sorceress, escapes the trickster Chaneques, and meets the famous Catrina Calavera. But can this clever youth gather the missing pieces needed for her family ofrenda before it’s too late? Joyous and heartfelt, Sugar Skull is an adventure that delves into the rich, tuneful traditions of Día de los Muertos.
