"I truly found "Mi Casa" one of the best of its kind -- bilingual music for kids that was melodic, well performed, and lyrically clever." - Anne Diffily
Based on Michele's award-winning children's recording, the show introduces American children to their South American neighbors through audience participation, original bilingual songs, authentic Latin rhythms, true travel stories and bright, colorful characters created by Emmy Award-winning puppeteer Ingrid Crepeau.
• Meet Maria Elena, the 4 year old Columbiana who loves to dance the cumbia
• Experience El Viento (the eerie wind) of the Andes Mountains
• Sing along with a real Mexican conjunto (a rhythm band) made up of audience members on La Bamba
• Watch the lovable Señora Niña, Chilean chef, while she puts more water in the soup for Mas Agua En La Sopa
Completing the set is an 8' map of Latin America with
removable Andes mountains to demonstrate just how long
the longest mountain range in the world really is.
And, of course, there is a puppet casa in the center of the stage.
