Teenage punk rock fan Little Red has always dreamed of seeing her favorite band, The Jack B. Nimbles, perform live. But when she finally has a chance to make it happen, their one-night-only concert lands on El Dí­a Del Sendero: It's Little Red's turn to deliver a basket of food to Grandma, as countless generations of her family have done before her. Encouraged to stray from the path by the seductively charismatic Don Coyote, will Little Red continue the family legacy or abandon it in the spirit of punk rebellion? Find out in this bold musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale.

"The show is worth seeing [for its] unique blend of humor, spirituality and folklore. Bring your teen sister, your pre-adolescent daughter, your mom and your abuelita because you'll miss them and wish they were there beside you laughing, smiling and singing along." - Alicia Vargas, Brooklyn & Boyle
