One of our founding SHARERS , the well known educational dramatist Celia Zubiri firstname.lastname@example.org writes to us. Celia is the director of "The Buenos Aires Players", the first company in Argentina to produce ELT Theatre for all ages. She says :
I think we all shared a lovely afternoon at Fernando Armesto´s this last Sunday, 16th and I thank you for that. Coffee, Cakes, family and talk ! What else was needed ? I was sure you were not going to remember all I told you about our doings on theatre. So, I´m sending you the news to SHARE with all our fellow SHARERS :
As you know our Headquarters are at TEATRO DE LA COMEDIA, Rodríguez Peña 1074, Bs. As. TEL: 4812-5307 / 4814-5455 / (15) 4493-3543
We are about to start THE BS. AS. PLAYERS´ PLAY SEASON 2000 with the following plays:
MOPPYLAND: musical comedy for the very small ones, $6. (Free Workpack and Audio Cassette) This play has become a must for Kindergarten children as this is our 5th year showing it and teachers don´t want their students to miss it. It´s got magic!
BESS, THE COW: musical comedy for children aged 5 to 8, $6. (Free Workpack and Audio Cassette) Bess lives on a farm with her friends, Mrs Pig and Mrs Hen, and has to go to town in order to receive the prize she has won. When they arrive in town they get involved in very serious problems such as “colours and traffic-lights”. A clear moral, lots of fun and learning.
MORGAN, THE BUCCANEER: musical comedy for children aged 9 to 11, $7. (Free Workpack and Audio Cassette). Adventures, romance, fights, tropical seas, a world of excitement and fantasy to share and enjoy. Everybody wants the island of Jamaica. Who will get it in the end? And how?
All these plays are shown from Monday to Friday either early in the morning or afternoon. We take reservations well in advance and we also tour these plays. There are many more details and some general information in our Brochure. If any of the SHARERS has not received it, they only need to ask for it and we´ll send it to their e-mail address or to their house.
On MAY, 2nd. we are presenting PYGMALION by George Bernard Shaw at 9PM, TEATRO DE LA COMEDIA. Adapted and directed by me. We have a full house for the preview ...and many teachers on a waiting list. But we could arrange a 50% discount for teachers coming on May, FRIDAY 5 at 7 PM. ( they will have to pay $5 only) . Those interested should make their reservations now so as not to be left without a seat on that very special Friday. This play will be shown on Tuesdays at 9PM and Fridays at 7PM. in May and June. Ticket price: $10 or $ 8 for groups of 10 people or more. Free Workpack.
We are also preparing HAMLET 2000 by Shakespeare in a free version by… me once again though this time it is directed by MAITE NUÑEZ. All the strength, power and political intrigue in a country of the 3rd. World. COMING SOON.
Well Omar, I thank you once more for sharing all this information that I hope will help SHARERS choose the play that best suits their needs and those of their students.
