Dream Carver, a bilingual musical, proves that imagination can be a compelling force of change. Mateo is a boy growing up in Oaxaca, Mexico whose father taught him to carve small wooden toys in the traditional way. One night, Mateo dreams of fantastic, brightly colored animals that dance and sing, led by a charismatic quetzal (an iridescent bird). When he wakes, he begins carving his dream animals into life. The show features a variety of colorful handcrafted puppets and a cast of Broadway-trained puppeteers. Through Mateo’s experience, the audience will be encouraged to think creatively, try new things, and embrace individuality. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
