Each year, the youth programs of Mission Academy of Performing Arts @ Brava collaborate to create a full-length production on Brava's Main Stage. The culminating spring performance is performed by students of Young Thespians Theater Lab, with dancing and music accompaniment by Cuicacalli Escuela De Danza and Mariachi Juvenil La Misíon, and technical support and production design by Brava’s San Francisco Running Crew.
