About this show

Infused with Spanish language, music and dance this children's musical is based on the classic book The Story of Ferdinand (published in 1936) by Munro Leaf with book and lyrics by acclaimed playwright Karen Zacarias and music by Deborah Wicks La Puma. Ferdy is an easy-going, flower-loving kind of bull, whose best friend, the star-struck pig Cochina, takes him to Madrid. Ferdy meets the unhappy Danilo, a boy torn between his own dreams and his father's desires. Their dramatic encounter has a happy ending that reveals the importance of being true to one's self. Recommended for ages 4 and up.
