The Department of Culture, among its activities scheduled for the first four months of 2020, has arranged that in the month of February, the theater has a special role.
During three Saturdays, the alguaceño public will enjoy three very different and interesting theatrical proposals.
On Saturday, February 1, at 8:30 p.m. at the Cine-Teatro IV Centenario, we will have the play âWhat this coffee lastsâ, written by Martín Giner and directed by Pedro Segura.
The actors José Salguero, Manuel Llamas and José A. Ortas will be responsible for giving life to the characters in this play of the absurd.
The story revolves around a meeting postponed for 20 years, an unpaid debt and two men who were once friends, turned into strangers with pending accounts and the time that a cup of coffee lasts to solve them.
A delirious journey that lasts what a coffee, in which the waiter will have to do as a therapist, arbitrator and judge, although the public will give the final verdict.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Municipal Library with a price of â¬ 10, and the day of the function at the box office for â¬ 12.
We will continue on Saturday, February 8, at the same time and in the same place, with a great classic of the Spanish comic theater: "The revenge of Don Mendo", by Pedro Muñoz Seca.
The representation will be in charge of the Tejuba theater group (Las Torres de Cotillas).
This work recreates medieval Spain and is divided into four acts, in which word games and humor strokes abound.
"It is a reduction to the absurdity of the elements of historical drama for parodic purposes and elements of yesterday and present are joined in obvious anachronisms, also causing medieval characters to move in a world dominated by the morality of Muñoz Seca's time," explains Joaquín Cantero, director of the company.
Tickets, both in advance at the Municipal Library and at the box office on the day of the show, are priced at â¬ 3.
And to culminate this theatrical February, on Saturday, February 29, also at 8:30 p.m. at the Cinema-Theater IV Centenary, we will enjoy the musical show âA shop in Parisâ, based on the book of the writer, journalist and presenter MÃ xim Huerta, and that passes between the happy Parisian 20s and today, joining the lives of two of its protagonists, Teresa and Alice.
On stage, a fusion of different artistic disciplines: live music, theater, dance, painting, cinema, interactive video projections ... a kaleidoscope of sensations at the service of a magical and surprising story.
Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Municipal Library with a price of â¬ 12, and the day of the function at the box office for â¬ 15.
Â«We want to continue promoting the taste for theater in Alguazas, and that is why February will be a great opportunity for our neighbors to enjoy great theater productions in their town.
I encourage all alguaceños and alguaceñas to acquire their tickets and not miss these three great plays, âsaid Juan Antonio López Ribera, Councilor for Culture of the City of Alguazas.
