Puppets will be taking over the Teatro Nacional today.
At 9 a.m. is a special program for school children to mark Día del Niño y la Niña.
Adults and children they might bring will have their show at the same theater at 12:10 p.m. when the Teatro a Mediodía presents the Colectivo El Queso and its show “Nuni.” The theater says the story line involves a chicken and an owl who have to flee a farm and confront the woods.
The theater staff said that there are two parts to this event. The visit by the puppets and the puppeteers marks a first. Usually the Tuesday performance is related to music. In addition, today is the eve of children’s day, and the hope is that entire families will come to enjoy the show, they said.
