“A Love Story with a Roaring Twenties Twist - think
Moulin Rouge meets West Side Story on the Panama Canal”

Panamá: The Musical takes place in the Canal Zone and Avenida Cuatro de Julio, in 1927.

A young American songwriter is forced to leave the "Zone" when her father, an Army-contractor, dies, leaving the family heavily indebted to the local cabaret/casino. Suddenly forced to make it on her own in the dangerous streets of Avenida Cuatro de Julio, will she ever realize her dream of hearing her and  her Panamanian boyfriend’s songs on this new thing called "radio?"

Desparate, her mother secretly sells her music to the cabaret/casino owner in order to keep herself out of debtor's prison. After winning a radio contest to record her songs in New York, the cabaret/casino owner threatens her if she leaves he will force her thirteen-year-old sister to repay the debt working in the cabaret.

Can she live her dream and make things right for her little sister? Come and see for yourself!
