This is a story about a boy named Emilio, who is challenged by and fearful of the many changes occurring in his life. Luckily, Emilio has a vivid imagination and an imaginary friend named "Cow” (Vaca). Together, Emilio and Cow begin to deal with the changes that have resulted from his parents' separation, going to a new school, trying to make new friends and living in a new home without his father. Written by Mexican playwright Amaranta Leyva and performed by the Mexico City-based puppet theater company, Marionetas de la Esquina, this heartwarming story shows children how their imaginations can lead them to creative solutions. The performance features the Bunraku style of puppetry developed in Japan, which the company has adapted to a modern story for families. Performances will be in both English and Spanish. Join us for post-show activities and meet the puppets and puppeteers.

Ages: 5 and up. Fee: $9 per seat with museum admission ($7 per seat for LICM members), $12 theater only.
