October 23-November 5

Sugar Skull! is a joyful digital theater experience that delves into the rich traditions of Día de Muertos to deepen audiences’ understanding of Mexican and Latin American culture. Featuring regional dances of Mexico, colourful costumes, and traditional music Sugar Skull! teaches about Mexican culture beyond the expected!

On this virtual adventure, audiences will join Sugar Skull, a charismatic candy skeleton, as he follows the music towards the ultimate party! He is spurred on by the tricky Chaneques, who desperately want him to be the centerpiece on their ofrenda (home altar). Along the path, Sugar Skull meets many colourful characters who teach him how Day of the Dead is much more than a party — it is a celebration of life!
