Teatro de las Américas will present the play “Too Many Tamales,” based on the picture book TOO MANY TAMALES by Gary Soto, and adapted to the stage by Margarita Galban and Lina Montalvo.  The play is in both English and Spanish with supertitles.


Maria is an only child, who carries on conversations with her dolls and stuffed animals. Her cousins and their parents are visiting on Christmas Eve for the traditional sharing of homemade tamales. A grandmother from one family and a grandfather from the other unexpectedly also show up.  Drama, comedy, and music ensue as the children are mischievous, the stuffed animals make comments, and everyone breaks out in song. 

Please visit Teatro De Las Americas website for ticket information and more.
