The Day of the Dead comes to life in a new bilingual children's musical. When Juana accidentally stumbles into the world of the dead in search of her beloved pet turtle, she comes face to face with Mictecacihuati, her hilarious sidekick Grito, and some of her grumpiest ancestros. Juana learns to face her greatest fears and that not everything is always what it seems to be. The whole audience is invited to a magical celebration of El Dia De Los Muertos, and helps Juana on her journey between the world of the dead and the world of the living.

We all know the classic stories of Hero versus Villain. Good versus Evil! Light versus Dark! And the battle for supremacy, in the beautiful town of Town City, is no different. For it is home to its own pair of ambitious adversaries. Fearsome foes. Cosmic competitors. Space Lady (Karate Expert, Alien, Hero) and Doctor V (Totally real Doctor, Air Guitar Enthusiast, Villain) are sworn enemies, and yet, they find themselves the only constant in each other's lives. Space Lady, the lone alien in a world filled with weak, impressionable humans. Doctor V, a mad-scientist genius, living a cut above the rest, who would be a whole lot smarter if she wasn't so dumb. It seems as if they live in an episodic monster-of-the-week series, and the status quo is comforting in its lack of character development. That is, however, until the Masquerader, a new ruthless villain, tries to destroy the city that Space Lady and Doctor V have been fighting over! The sacred bond between hero and villain will be stressed as things start to get real. What will happen? Who will win? Find out, in a battle of Good and Evil versus Slightly More Evil!
