Seating chart & directions
Amigo Duende is the story of Marisa, a six-year-old girl with a big imagination. Marisa is growing up in NYC with her older sister that demands she stop imagining stories with her "unbelievable" elf friend and join the "real world". Things get complicated when Marisa begins school and has to adapt to the rules and patterns set by society. Join Marisa in a journey, that we have all taken as we ask ourselves a timeless question. Is it possible to grow and evolve without sacrificing your inner child?
In a world where childhood innocence is often in jeopardy as our youth is being encouraged to grow up faster and faster, this new children's musical aims to question the balance between preserving our children's imagination and the guidance they need to receive towards their inevitable growth and participation in society. At the same time, this musical incorporates values such as commitment, respect, dedication, diversity, heritage, traditions, and self-respect.
