Children will have a chance to learn about grief via a play

Teatro Jacó will celebrate the  Día del Niño Sept. 1 with a sad tale that has a happy ending.

The presentation is Adios, Querido Cuco, which chronicles the effect on a child when a beloved dog dies of old age.

The presentation follows the character, called Pola, as she passes through the seven stages of grief and finds renewed joy in starting over with a new puppy, the theater said.

Despite the somber storyline, the play is a popular Latin American presentation for children.

The work was written by the Mexican actress and director Berta Hiriart. The characters are puppets.

The show is at 5 p.m. Parents also can bring their children at 2:30 p.m. fora pre-show workshop with the actors and to learn how to make some of the creations that are used on stage.

Teatro Jacó says that its mission is to bring culture and the arts to the communities of Garabito through theatrical, dance and musical productions, in-school workshops combining professional artists with our local talent.
