Gutman, the wicked hotelier, rules the Camino Real with an iron fist, and the residents of this dead-end town live in fear of him and his band of thugs. Trapped and disillusioned, they have all but given up when the arrival of our hero and former light heavyweight boxing champ, Kilroy, brings renewed hope to these lost souls and reignites their wills to live. Called "an extraordinary creative achievement" (ArtsATL), Camino Real is a rousing tale of survival and good versus evil that fuses dance, theater, and live music into one unforgettable experience.
Recommended for ages 12 and up.
