The Prince & the Pana

The Puerto Rican Cultural Center in Austin, TX invites you to the upcoming debut of The Prince & The Pana, our 21st annual, original theater production that promises to captivate audiences as it brings Puerto Rican history to life through live music, dance, storytelling, cocobalé (Afro-Puerto Rican stick and machete fighting),… and a touch of magic.

Set in the mid-19th century, prior to the abolition of slavery in Puerto Rico, The Prince & The Pana uses historical fiction to depict the struggles, hardship, treachery, victories, and joy of life in that era. The dialog weaves together English, Spanish, and Taíno (the language of Puerto Rican indigenous people) to tell the story of an African prince on his quest to save his kingdom, outsmart corruption, and help his new Puerto Rican friends.

The tale also explores the history of La Majestád (Majesty), the last known illegal slave ship to arrive in Puerto Rico in 1859, and challenges historic stereotypes by highlighting strong, visionary women (Taíno descendants) who were ahead of their time.
