The association Rondalla Volcanes del Teide will perform tomorrow [24 May] at 5:00 p.m. in the town's senior citizens' centre


The Auditorio de Tenerife organises the Amateur Theatre Programme under the Island Council's Culture Area managed by the Island's minister Enrique Arriaga.  The programme offers a new piece titled Cena de Navidad (The Christmas Dinner). The Association Rondalla Volcanes del Teide features tomorrow (24 May) at 5.00 p.m., in the senior citizens' centre of La Orotava. The free tickets are available to the public until the full capacity is reached. This show is part of the programme of the town's Cultural Week.

The play begins on Christmas Eve, with the Sánchez family waiting for their daughter Pepita, her future husband, Javi, and his mother to arrive. The parents, the grandmother and the maid are busy preparing dinner. They want to organise a perfect evening at home, but nothing will happen as the Sánchez family thought. Will the evening be a dream come true or a real nightmare?

The cast of actresses comprises Marina Santos García, Isabel Acosta Lina, Antonia García Luis, María del Pilar Padrón Yanes, Isabel Hernández Lorenzo, Ascención Díaz González and Estrella Escobar Luis, under the direction of Eusebio Galván Cabello.

The theatre group is in charge of the costumes and scenography with the collaboration of the Town Council of La Orotava.

The programme Amateur Theatre is part of the offer by the Educational and Social Area of Auditorio de Tenerife. It encourages the interest in theatre as a hobby and the production of theatrical plays among the existing associations in Tenerife. This programme aims to stimulate matters such as communication, the exchange of ideas, and creativity amongst members who, in turn, belong to youth, cultural and women's collectives or neighbourhood groups, among others.

Its main objectives are to promote a liking for theatre among different social and cultural groups, to promote the general public's attendance to, and love of, theatrical plays; and to contribute to enriching the technical/artistic quality of amateur theatre groups and to create different workgroups such as directors, actors, costume designers, seamstresses, playwrights and scriptwriters.
