Albert Porter: Boy Explorer/ Niño Explorador
Book and Lyrics by Lojo Simon
Music by Richard Rischar
Albert Porter is an ordinary kid in every sort of way. At least that’s what he thinks – until he discovers the people and stories from the past that make him exceptional. Throughout his journey he learns about the many cultures that make up Colorado’s diverse landscape: including the Pueblos and the Utes, Hispano explorers, French fur trappers and Angelo ranchers. Travel with Albert as he adventures through time, discovering the rich cultures that weave together the contemporary landscape of the Southwest!

“The students were positively engaged with the performance. They were laughing, responded to the actors and left wanting to read books. What teachers could ask for anything more?” Cynthia Bills, Teacher, High Rolls, NM.
LITERACY MATTERS TO US!
To support your community’s literacy endeavors, each student receives a free children’s book after our shows. The book reinforces the themes of the play while making reading fun! In addition, teachers receive a study guide used before and/or after the performance.
