“Sugar Skull!” Invites Young Audiences to Celebrate the Tuneful Traditions of Día de Muertos at Greeley’s Union Colony Civic Center


 “Sugar Skull! A Día de Muertos Musical Adventure” brings an immersive, bilingual musical production to Greeley’s Union Colony Civic Center at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 701 10th Ave.

The family-friendly performance uses traditional music and dance from Mexico to tell the story of twelve-year-old Vita Flores and her journey to unlock the true meaning of Día de Muertos.

Production time is approximately one hour, and all tickets are $5.

A Joyous, Heartfelt Adventure

“Sugar Skull!” begins with young Vita trying to understand why her family is throwing a party for deceased loved ones. With the help of a spirited candy skeleton, she finds herself on a magical, musical journey, dancing with ancient ancestors, singing with a sorrowful sorceress, and even meeting the famous Catrina Calavera.  

The show features a company of gifted musicians and dancers and is a production of Rhythm of the Arts, Gregory Van Acker, Sinuhé Padilla, Elena Aráoz, and Mexico Beyond Mariachi,
