They’ll save the universe… if they don’t kill each other first!

Meet the Wong Kids, typical teenage brother and sister that just discovered their hidden superpowers. This rock-‘em, sock-‘em, sci-fi space adventure, that’s part Phineas and Ferb meets A Wrinkle in Time, pits the squabbling siblings against the evil Space Chupacabra in a heroic plight to save the universe. Sophisticated and full of irreverent humor, Wong Kids combines the hipness of manga and anime with a fantastic voyage of tenacity, courage and in the end, true friendship.

The Wong Kids in the Secret of the Space Chupacabra Go! 
is a world-premiere co-production with Ma-Yi Theater Company in NewYork, an award-winning theater company whosemission is to develop and produce new andinnovative plays by Asian American writers. Theconversation started four years ago between CTCArtistic Director Peter C. Brosius and Ma-Yi TheaterCompany Artistic Director Ralph Peña. How couldthe two theaters work together to help Ma-Yi growits family audiences and for CTC to develop newwork from Asian American artists? Commissioningwonderfully inventive playwright Lloyd Suh was theanswer and The Wong Kids was born. The play willhead to New York after its CTC premiere.As you know, research has shown that the earlyyears in a child’s life—when the human brain isforming—represent a critically important windowof opportunity to develop a child’s full potentialand shape key academic, social, and cognitiveskills that determine a child’s success in schooland in life. The Arts are a crucial tool for teachingempathy, expanding imagination and introducingideas that challenge our thinking.
The Wong Kids in the Secret of the Space Chupacabra Go! 
as with all the plays on our stagethis season, is a product of the imagination andhard work of every actor, director, playwright, andartist at CTC. We hope you, your students, andyour family will be transported to the worlds wehave created. We hope our plays spark dialoguebetween friends, classmates and family membersand that everyone shares in the power of activeimagination.See you at the theatre!Warmly,
