‘Sugar Skull!’ brings musical, magical family fun to the Byham Theater this October!

SUGAR SKULL! A Día de Muertos Musical Adventure is a touring bilingual/bicultural musical for young audiences and families that uses traditional regional music and dance from Mexico to tell the story of twelve-year-old Vita Flores. Vita thinks her family has gone loco planning a celebration for deceased loved ones. Why throw a party for the dead? But when a spirited candy skeleton suddenly springs to life, Vita finds herself on a magical, musical journey to unravel the true meaning of Día de Muertos.

Meet Sugar Skull, a charismatic skeleton with a secret or two. With her skeletal new friend, Vita dances with ancient ancestors, sings with a sorrowful sorceress, escapes the trickster Chaneques, and even meets the famous Catrina Calavera. But can this clever youth gather the missing pieces needed for her family ofrenda before it’s too late?

Leading up to the November celebrations of Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead), Sugar Skull!’s vibrant story and thrilling performance make it the perfect show for families seeking to discover the importance of culture, history, and remembering loved ones. Featuring an 8-person multi-talented cast of musicians, actors, and dancers, you won’t want to miss this incredible show on Saturday, October 7!
