WE’VE BATTLED MONSTERS BEFORE

Nov 26 – Dec 26 2021

Book, Music and Lyrics by Justin Huertas 

When you’re the youngest sibling in a family of secret warriors who for generations have protected Seattle from monsters and demons, living up to your Lola’s expectations is, in a word, daunting. Adarna’s mistakes were cute at first, but when they begin to cost her family more than she ever imagined, she must decide what she would sacrifice to save them. Loosely adapted from the 16th century Filipino epic poem  Ibong Adarna, playwright-composer-lyricist Justin Huertas returns to his  Lizard Boy roots with a sweet and intimate actor-musician musical adventure.

Seating Note for the North Section – when viewing the north section seating map please note that the space in the middle is for a scenic element and is not an aisle.

Language Note – for those who may be bringing children, the subject matter is just fine for kids, although the word “asshole” is repeated.
