Latin American Myths for Curious Children

One of the best ways to celebrate the fabulous and intriguing Latin American heritage is through its stories. Join us for a fun storytelling show for kids who are always curious about the world. This show is for those niños y niñas, children who ask: why is the night dark? How was the world created? Why does the moon come out at night? Has the sky fallen before?

Through different Latin American myths, we will discover the creation stories of various ancient cultures, told “hace mucho tiempo,” from south of El Rio Grande to the southern tip of South America.

Come prepared to enjoy puppets, and have fun listening to and participating in the magical stories that gave meaning to our world a long time ago.
