Young CJ is reluctantly staying with his Nana, in a world considerably different from the one he’s used to. Over the course of a long weekend, and guided by a firm but loving grandmother and a whole host of new friends, CJ travels a little closer to his roots and sees that things are not always what they seem. This sharp and funny story is a hip-hopping, heart-thumping, toe-tapping musical joy ride. Based on the beloved Newbery-winner by Matt de la Peña this warm and wise tale reminds us to find beauty in all parts of our lives.


Originally co-commissioned and produced by Chicago's Children's Theatre and the Children's Theatre Company.
