ABOUT Carmela Full of Wishes
Adapted by Alvaro Saar Rios from the book by Matt de la Peña
Illustrated by Christian Robinson
Carmela Full of Wishes is a hopeful play based on the acclaimed book of the same title by Newbery Medal and Caldecott Honor-winning author Matt de la Peña and illustrator Christian Robinson. On her birthday, young Carmela wakes up thrilled to finally be old enough to join her big brother on their family errands. As they travel through their neighborhood, Carmela stumbles upon a lone dandelion growing in the pavement. But before she can blow away its white fluff, her brother reminds her to make a wish. With a heart full of hopes and dreams, Carmela wishes for a candy machine, a fancy bed for Mamí like the ones at the hotel where she works, and most importantly, for Papí to come back home soon. Then her dandelion is crushed before she can make her biggest wish. Can her brother help her to believe in the power of wishes once again? Join us on this journey celebrating family, dreamers, and the power of hope found in the most unexpected places.

Can I book a show for something other than a school?
Yes, our performances also make great entertainment at special events.
Do we need to have a stage?
No, but a 25′ x 25′ stage/space is preferred to allow a seamless experience for sets and actors! We can always adapt to meet your request. Give us a call at (210) 227-2751 so we can help bring our show to you.
Indoor or outdoor?
Both! Magik Theatre can perform outdoors (weather-permitting) on a covered, hard-level surface. For indoor settings (due to large sets and equipment), we recommend the performance location to be on the first floor of the building. If not, elevators must accommodate our set pieces.
Please note that a changing area/space must be provided for the actors.
Do you require any equipment?
We will bring all of our own equipment with easy access to a standard electrical outlet.
