Why Should Families See ¡Corre, Abuelita, Run!?

¡Corre, Abuelita, Run! is a story about family and the joy, creativity, inspiration and lessons we pass down through generations <3

¡Corre, Abuelita, Run! is a beautiful story that explores the power of multigenerational relationships, perseverance and the true beauty of different cultures that surround us each day, living in Nueva York.

¡Corre, Abuelita, Run! is a fun way for you and your kids to connect with your culture, or maybe see what someone else’s culture is like!

¡Corre, Abuelita, Run!

It’s the first Sunday in November, and Emily’s Abuelita is running in the NYC marathon! Emily made a sign that reads “¡Corre, Abuelita, Run!” that she wants to hold up as Abuelita runs through the finish line – but she needs your help to travel through the five boroughs and get to Central Park in time to celebrate!

Conceived, written, and directed by Sammy Lopez, ¡Corre, Abuelita, Run! is an interactive bilingual, Spanish and English, performance that uses language, music, puppetry, and movement to take your youngest audience members on a journey through the vibrant and diverse neighborhoods of New York City.

If you enjoyed this activity, please consider making a donation to New York City Children’s Theater.
