The Cuban children’s theater company, La Colmenita, directed by Carlos Alberto Cremata, will travel to the United States this month for presentations in Washington, New York and San Francisco.
The tour’s program, scheduled for October 12 through 30, includes the play La Cenicienta según los Beatles (Cinderella after the Beatles), where audiences will have the chance to assess how children see the famous band which had such a strong impact on the US and the world. The play is adapted to current Cuban reality.
Another piece to be staged is Abracadabra, which enables the public to see how children see today’s Cuba and the situation of the five Cuban antiterrorists unjustly locked in US jails for fighting terrorism.
The play is based on texts written by Alicia Jrapko, Mario Benedetti and Nazim Hikmet featuring music (sung live by the children actors) by Silvio Rodriguez, Carlos Puebla, Fito Paez, Joseito Fernandez and Los Van Van.The Cuban children’s theater group La Colmenita is Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)
