Ricitos  | Open: 05/03/10 Close: 05/08/10
The award winning Latino theatre company for young audiences, SEA, Society of the Educational Arts/Sociedad Educativa de las Artes, under the artistic direction of Manuel A. Morán, is proud present their award-winning production of Ricitos y Los 3 Ositos/ Ricitos and The 3 Bears (performed in Spanish & English simultaneously).

In this spirited retelling of the familiar tale, a feisty Ricitos (Goldilocks) gets lost while wandering through the woods and stumbles across a vacant house. Her irrepressible curiosity gets her into more trouble than she's bargained for when she enters the three bears' house uninvited. Her mischievous behavior leads her on a quest to find the perfect bowl of porridge, the perfect chair, and finally, the perfect bed for a nap. Unbeknownst to her, her reckless mishaps leave a trail of clues that only serve as evidence, as the Bear family returns home to unravel this mystery. This is when the traditional elements of the original story are jazzed up with plenty of pleasant surprises, which give this rendition a fresh new charm.


The Bear family: Mr. Oscar, Mrs. Osaura, and little Oscarito along with a comical cast of interesting characters, Mr. Grandfather Clock, Ms. Stove and Mr. Refrigerator, take audiences on a "comedy of errors" adventure, as Ricitos finally confronts the three bears and has to learn to take responsibility, say sorry and to make friends. Parents and children alike will treasure this refreshing version with original songs, sets and customs for many years to come.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to join SEA in one unforgettable season of New York's ONLY Latino Children's Theatre, where the New York Daily News says "Children's Theater at its best! BRAVO Company for Kids!" and where NBC says "...fabulous performances!"

The original book for THE TOOTHACHE OF KING FARFÁN was written by the legendary Quintero Brothers, known as the "Golden Boys of Theater in Madrid". The original score by Amadeo Vives was lost, forcing producers throughout the world to commission contemporary composers to create scores for each production. This new production features a score by Manuel Morán and Ivan Alexander Bautista.
