Location: Herberger Theater Center -- Stage West


Tomás loves stories! Papa Grande tells them to him todas las noches but soon Tomás knows all of them by heart. One day while his family is in Iowa picking crops, Tomás meets the Library Lady and nothing is ever the same again. Based on the true story of Tomás Rivera and the book by Pat Mora, this play is a celebration of reading, imagination and creativity.


The production will tour the country from October to March and be available for field trips at the Herberger Theater Center in April/May.
