The event is part of the amateur performing arts programme of the Auditorio de Tenerife


Tomorrow (Friday 22nd), the Amateur Theatre programme of the Auditorio de Tenerife programmes the play Cuando Alicia llegue (When Alicia Arrives), by the theatre association Puro Teatro, directed by Goyo Bonilla. The performance starts at 8.00 p.m. in the Civic Centre of Bajamar, municipality of La Laguna. Recommended for an adult audience, entry to the work is free until full capacity is reached.

The plot of this play focuses on Ninoska, the owner of a cabaret acquired in circumstances that, for international security reasons, must not be revealed. She allows strange and extravagant characters into her show who recount their experiences inside and outside the cabaret. Although the Russian lady, as her employees call her, complains about the lack of professionalism of her artists, in reality, she is delighted because they fill her venue for a meagre salary. Cuando Alicia llegue (When Alicia arrives) is what can be read on the entrance sign although nobody knows the origin of this name.

The cast that brings this cabaret comedy to life is made up of members of the theatre association Puro Teatro: Lidia Dorta, Salomé Torres, María de Viana, Estrella Carmenati, Begoña Pagarza, Jesús Patrón, Glenda Suárez, Julio Sigut, Nuria Neida, Lucas Hehe, José Luis Alayón and Piluca Prada.

The programme Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) is an initiative that is included in 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.).
