Pásale Pásale

Pásale Pásale is a heartwarming and humorous musical that immerses audiences in the vibrant world of the Rive Swap Meet. As the heartbeat of the community, the swap meet is home to a diverse group of vendors facing an unexpected challenge. Señor Muchascosas has decided to raise the vendors' fees, creating a wave of anxiety among those already struggling to make ends meet.

Audiences become active participants, invited to taste the delightful raspados, craft pinatas with Doña Lulu, explore the fashion designs of Rosie, and stand in solidarity with the vendors on their journey towards self-determination. Amidst the laughter and music, Pásale Pásale unfolds as a celebration of community, resilience, and the power of unity in the face of economic challenges. Get ready to be immersed in a world where joy, connection, and empowerment take center stage at the Rive Swap Meet.
