    About The Play:

    There’s a Coquí in My Shoe! is a distinctive and delightful story celebrating Puerto Rico’s national treasure, the coquí (co-kee). It splendidly captures, in breathtaking illustrations, the vibrant color, culture, flora (plant kingdom), and fauna (animal kingdom) of the island.

    A young boy named Armando surprisingly discovers a coquí in his red shoe. Carlito the Coquí is lost and cannot find his way home to the rainforest. Armando befriends Carlito and anxiously waits for the following day to accompany his mother, Lola, to sell their pushcart of piraguas(pee-rah-gwas) (snow cones) to the Puerto Rican children.

    See in this charming tale how Carlito the Coquí and Armando’s friendship blossoms. Find out whether or not Carlito the Coquí will find his way home with the help of Armando, and if Armando and his mother will sell their mouth-watering piragüas.

    There's a Coquí in My Shoe! is full of yummy tastes, bright colors, and dramatic sounds, and Puerto Rico’s cultural importance is described in the scenes and places mentioned such as El Morro, El Yunque National Forest, Old San Juan, Casa Rosa, and the white, sandy beaches.
