For nearly 70 years, Adventure Theatre has served our community by bringing joy to the hearts of families and children. This #GivingTuesday, ATMTC needs your help. ATMTC spends on average $7,500 per month to bring Sunday virtual presentations to our community and provide paid work to many artists with limited professional opportunities due to the closures. Together, your support will continue to lift up every voice and bring joy to all children and families in our community.

Join Adventure in the wing for our first in-person show since the beginning of the pandemic!
The discovery of a worn pink wrestling mask prompts Nana Lupita, a Wisconsin grandmother, to share her tale about growing up in 1960s Texas. As her tale unfolds, Lupita’s life as a teen tomboy comes alive—bike riding with her friends Leopold and Liesl, working at her father’s flower stand and lucha libre. When a World Championship match is announced, Lupita anticipates seeing it until she discovers her ailing father is one of the wrestlers. With the help of a magical mask maker, Lupita secretly trains to take her father’s place. She soon finds it difficult keeping her secret from her friends and, most importantly, her father.
Adventure is excited to welcome you to our show! As we move to indoor performances and in the spirit of protecting the most vulnerable in our community, a few friendly reminders:
- Adventure Theatre requires everyone over the age of two years old attending its shows to wear a mask and remain masked while in our facility.
- A proof of vaccination will be required for admission for all individuals ages 12 and up.
- Any customer 12 and up without proof of vaccination will not be granted access to the performance.
