The Austin Scottish Rite Theatre’s Día de los Muertos family show was so popular and well-received last year that they decided to bring it back again this October for more kids to enjoy. Based on the award-winning children’s book by Erich Haeger and Eric González, Rosita y Conchita is a show for all ages featuring rhyming bilingual dialogue and touching images. You can see it on weekends through Sunday, October 29.
In this play, two sisters try to reunite on the Day of the Dead. Along the way Rosita keeps getting lost, but she miraculously finds her way to Conchita through familiar sounds, sights and smells.
Rosita y Conchita is playing on Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. through Sunday, October 29. Tickets are $8 for children ages 3-11, free for ages 2 & under, and $12 for ages 12 & up. You can get tickets online here or at the door the day of the show.
As with all children’s plays at Austin Scottish Rite Theatre, kids are invited to come early for coloring time in the grand lobby as well as to snack on cookies or drinks (priced at $1 each). Once the theatre doors open, kids are invited to sit on the carpets near the stage to get up-close to all of the action and enjoy the best seats in the house. And kids can stick around after the show for photos and autographs with the cast.
