Before I entered the actual theatre, the Miracle Center recreated a piece of Puerto Rico in Chicago with a photo opportunity set. The show begins with a short animation on screens that create the backdrops throughout the show of beautiful locations of Puerto Rico, before introducing the star of the show, the Coqui.

After a game of hide and seek he winds up exploring all over the beautiful island, and ends up in the shoe of Armando, the son of a piragua vendor.
