“The part that I really enjoyed was that we made some dough balls and smashed them. My favourite character was the mum, ‘cause she speaks kindly to Manny.” Audience member

Súper Chefs is Maya Productions’ new bi-lingual, interactive Latin American family musical by Betsy Picart with original music by Ariel Cubría, exploring family relationships, food, and gender roles. It is aimed at children aged 4 to 8,  their families, and school audiences.

6-year-old Manny is bursting with excitement at the thought of preparing a welcome home dinner for his dad Tony, who’s on a work trip for his new job. Together with his mum, professional chef Valeria, his granny Abuela Alma, and his superhero companion Mighty Mujer, he is planning to cook a family meal of arepas, guacamole, and delicious brigadeiros for dessert.

Through dancing, singing and cooking, Súper Chefs explores food, family, and gender roles in a Latin American family. The production has interactive elements where audiences sing, dance and make food alongside the performers, inspiring a new dialogue between audiences and the show.

The show is accompanied by workshops and educational resources for primary school children and teachers following the KS1 PSHE curriculum.
