The Transition of Doodle Pequeno

It's Halloween in Southern California, the Santa Ana winds blow fiercely and nothing is as it seems. Doodle Pequeño and his Mamá recently moved across the city to a cramped apartment in a quadruplex after Papá was deported to Mexico. Anxious to trick-or-treat, Doodle comes home from school to discover that Mamá is unexpectedly working overtime at her new job. Forlorn, he summons Valencia, his imaginary trilingual goat, to keep him occupied.

While Valencia is teaching Doodle to speak "Goat," a vampire appears at the window. It's Reno, a kid in the quadruplex who has come to welcome Doodle to the neighborhood. Reno is a self-described "vaudeville vampire," which means that, in addition to his fangs, he dons a tutu. Although Doodle doesn't quite know what to make of his eccentric new friend, Reno convinces Doodle to wear a skirt of his own and go trick-or-treating with him.

The Transition of Doodle Pequeño is a magic-filled, multiple award-winning play for all ages about two boys who become friends in spite of their differences. It examines the consequences of misused language, provides insight into the lives of Mexican-immigrant children and interrogates the issues of gender-identity and homophobic bullying.
