Teatro Jacó to give show based on Tico legends

Teatro Jacó will present “Tico Tales,” a musical that presents traditional Costa Rican stories in both English and Spanish.

The musical was written by Michael Sgouros and Brenda Bell. The two were inspired by Costa Rican culture last December when they brought their version of “A Christmas Carol” to the theater.

The work includes dance, music and nature to explain folk tales and legends of the country.

“Enter the rain forest as the rhymes and legends of an ancient culture sweep you away to a long-forgotten land,” said a release. “Hear the call of the beautiful Quetzal bird, stump your foot as the cast and musicians play a drumming tale, sneak a peek into a traditional tribal dance while the little devils chase away the bull and celebrate love with the Indian princess Cira as she is transformed into a volcano.

Tico Tales is directed by Darren Lee Cole and choreographed by Carlos Ovares. The production will take place Wednesday to Dec. 23 and Dec. 26 to Dec. 30. at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $10 for children and $20 for general entry and $30 for VIP. Persons can make reservations at 2630-9812.

“This show will captivate your heart and make your heart beat to a new, but ancient drum,” said the theater.
