Upper East Side

Young elementary, Tween, Teen, Adult


Event description: It's the night before first grade begins and Marisa is faced with an important choice. Will she be able to enjoy her larger-than-life world of adventures with her best friend Remolino, a wisecracking elf, or will she be forced to leave behind her childhood fantasies and become a grown-up?

Nothing is impossible in "Amigo Duende," a modern-day fairy tale based on the classic story by Flavia Lugo De Marichal where your favorite childhood toys sing and dance, fantasies become reality, and a little girl fights to keep imagination alive in a world daring her to grow up fast.

This musical is performed by adults, in English, and runs 75 minutes with one intermission.
