PUPPET THEATRE I (UPSIDE DOWN WORLD) (2005)

Érase una vez un grupo de estudiantes de Inglés y su maestra que decidieron crear una obra de arte. Con mucho amor, dedicación y esfuerzo dieron vida a unos personajes que muestran que ni todas las brujas tienen por que ser malas, ni todos los lobos despiadados, ni todas las princesas bellas y honestas. En este mundo de fantasía nos da una valiosa lección y nos enseñan a no prejudgar.

Pero basta de tanta charla y ... ¡que comience la función!

PUPPET THEATRE

This puppet play has been done with the participation of three children: Desiree García Larena, Miguel Ángel Dominguez Larena, Andrés Gutierrez Marrube and their teacher, in a  kind of  theatre workshop in their English class. Everybody chose two characters and decided what they were going to say  and  the way their relationship  was going to be like. To present it we received a lot of help. Celia Gutierrez Marrube and Mercedes Blanco de Rojas who were 10 hours painting and decorating the Puppet Theatre, Eva Alonso Verdugo who designed the programme and helped the children with the rehersal and perfomance of the play. David Blanco de Rojas who accompanied us with the music and helped us with his car and enthusiasm. All this hard work made the show an example of a team-work, generosity and beauty. We finally enjoyed  it  in "La Traviata Restaurant" on 25th June, 2004 at 7.30 p.m.

UPSIDEDOWN WORLD SONG

YOU CAN BE HAPPY AGAIN

ALL THE CHARACTERS SINGING




The light of the stars, a little bit of sun
A little bit of love and grass
Put them in a pot and say the Magic words
A blow, a spark, a bang

bis

You can be happy again
To play and have your best friends
With the light of the stars
And a little ray of sun
And love and grass...

Nada en el mundo puede sustituir a la perseverancia. El talento no lo hará; nada es más común que un hombre de talento sin éxito. El genio tampoco; el genio no premiado es casi un axioma. La educación por sí sola tampoco; el mundo esta lleno de cultos sin gloria. Sólo la perseverancia y la firmeza son omnipotentes.
