Sweet 15 delves deep into the heart of a quinceañera celebration, a cherished Latina tradition that  marks a young girl’s transition into womanhood. However, in this comedic production, a joyous  rite of passage unfolds into a tale of unexpected (and literal) twists and turns, seven years late. The  play is a valentine for families (especially Latino families) and shows the power of forgiveness as a  father tries to win back his family after disappearing for seven years. Placed in an actual  quinceañera hall, audiences will experience the exciting thrills of this immersive quinceañera. This  Broadway-style extravaganza is set to be an unforgettable experience that will leave audiences  singing along and laughing out loud.
