The theatrical association presents this comedy as part of the Amateur Theatre programme


Tomorrow [Friday 25], the Auditorio of Guía de Isora hosts the play Bar Manoloperformed by the association Tatrum as part of the programme of the Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) of the Auditorio de Tenerife. The cultural venue is linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council which is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. The show, which is part of the eighth amateur theatre festival organised by the Town Council of Guía de Isora, starts at 8:00 p.m.  

The theatrical piece presents us the Bar Manolo, a popular establishment located opposite the cemetery. Manolo, the owner, is a fan of crosswords and drinking. He is accompanied by Conchi, who is responsible for cleaning and cooking. During the show, a wide variety of characters will come to the bar, which will be the setting of forbidden love, vices, complicities, and madness. One day, things get out of control due to the death of an acquaintance and an accident that includes a coffin, an old woman whose memory is failing and a winning lottery number.

Nine performers from the Tatrum association bring this proposal to life. José Manuel Sosa will be Manolo, the bar owner, while Yesica Rodríguez will be Conchi, the cook. Hugo Rodríguez will play Carlos the teacher and Mariana Rodríguez will be Silvia, mother of Leticia, who will be in the role of Yolanda Peña. Luisa and Paco are the workers at the funeral home, roles played by Olga Vanesa Curotto and José Luis Rubio, respectively. Lastly, Olgui González will become Blanca, the widow, and Pepe Damas will play Jesus, the plumber. 

Bar Manolo was created by Jean Pierre Martínez and directed by Irene Pérez. The costumes and stage design of this show, which involves the collaboration of the Council of Guía de Isora, is provided by the theatre group itself. This artistic proposal premiered last June at the Teatro Unión Tejina (La Laguna) and has been shown in Tacoronte and Santa Cruz.

The programme Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) is part of the Educational 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 on the island. 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.
