The Prince & The Pana is a historical and magical musical that weaves together English, Spanish, and Taíno (the language of Puerto Rican Indigenous people). Set against the backdrop of the mid-19th century, prior to the Abolition of Slavery in Puerto Rico, the story follows an African Prince on his quest to save his people.

The compelling production explores the history of the Majesty, the last known illegal slave ship to arrive in Puerto Rico in 1859, while challenging historical stereotypes and highlighting strong, visionary women (Taíno descendants) who were ahead of their time.

The annual musical event combines community theater, original live music, dance, and cocobalé (Afro-Puerto Rican sticks and machete fighting) to breathe life into history and pay homage to unsung heroes. The musical promises to showcase live original Bomba, Plena, Jíbaro, and Taíno music.
