- Things to Do
- Bump + Baby
A seemingly plain clay pot magically transports Cucha, a selfish and lonely girl, from her town of Zapotoco, Mexico, to a mysterious jungle. There she 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.Book and lyrics by Karen Zacarías music by Deborah Wicks La Puma directed and choreographed by Elena Velasco music directed by Walter “Bobby” McCoy and Marika Countouris
