Hotelito C. Herrera is a comedy of intrigue adapted from the text El anuncio inoportuno by Alicia Uzcanga Lavalle. The plot will lead the audience to discover a motley cast of characters, who fill the different scenes of the show with very fun moments.

Gregorio Bonilla and Wame Gutiérrez are responsible for both the direction and music of the work, which has make-up by Laura Cobo Aguilar and the collaboration of the Council of the Town of Arico. The cast of Hotelito C. Herrera is formed by Carolina Marrero, Esmeralda Expósito, Loly Castro, Feli Oval, Loly González, Juani Pérez, María José Domínguez, Pilar González, Montse González, Lala Pérez, María Esther Álvarez, Toni Fuu, Nanci González and Encarna Pineda.

Quien pide el último, pide mejor begins with a lady who finds a strange lamp that turns out to have powers while she is tidying the attic. Then, she decides to share the discovery with her friends, who turn up both intrigued and incredulous. After some adventures they conclude that everyone can achieve what they want if they are really determined to do so. The magic is thus within each person.

This text was written by the author Blanca Poza Esperón and the direction of this version is by Irene Pérez, with Lucas Hernández, as assistant. The following performers bring this work to life: Mari Carmen Cruz, Dorys Pelayo, Sergio del Pino, Nati Álvarez, Carmen del Rosario, Monse Morales, Juan Carlos del Pino and Lucas Hernández.

The programme Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) is part of the Educational and Social Area of the Auditorio de Tenerife. This programme encourages interest in the hobby of theatre and the production of theatrical plays by the existing associations in Tenerife. It aims to stimulate matters such as communication, the exchange of ideas, and creativity amongst members who, in turn, belong to youth collectives, cultural collectives, women's collectives, and 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; likewise, to contribute to enriching the technical/artistic quality of amateur theatre groups and to create different work groups (directors, actors, costume designers, seamstresses, playwrights, scriptwriters, etc.).
