Teamed up with her comic-loving BFF Nicki, they’re on a mission to uncover ancient Aztec secrets and take down the baddies invading their school. Infused with humor, heroism, and heartfelt moments, Quetzali and the Comic Book Queen vs. The Alebrije of Darkness: Live in the School Cafeteria promises an unforgettable theatrical experience you won’t want to miss. Join us for this celebration of friendship, family, and finding the (super)power within yourself.
