Shanna is a Mexican-American girl who—along with her helpers, her brother Shane, Dinah the dinosaur, Ducky and Tiger—puts on a musical show in her room. Shane gives a drumroll, announces the show, and Dinah, Ducky and Tiger shine flashlights all over the curtains and make crowd noises just before Shane pulls the curtain and Shanna starts giving viewers three clues to help them guess what she is dressed up and pretending to be.

In each episode Shanna pretends to be a different person, such as:

  • Lifeguard
  • Dentist
  • Bus Driver
  • Veterinarian
  • Actress
  • Baker
  • Farmer
  • Teacher
  • Astronaut
  • Artist
  • Ballerina
  • Fire Fighter
  • Doctor
  • Magician
