CANTA Y NO LLORES — Sing and Don't Cry
Miracle Theatre Group's original, bilingual celebration of the Day of the Dead
From Oct. 30 through Nov. 15, 2009, Miracle Theatre Group is pleased to present CANTA Y NO LLORES (Sing and Don't Cry), an original, bilingual celebration of the Day of the Dead created by MartÃƒÆ’n Milagro, directed by Olga Sanchez and sponsored by El Hispanic News.
Every fall, the dead are commemorated in a lively show of dance, music and theatre in Portland's longest-running Day of the Dead celebration. This year, los muertos return singing old-time tunes that harken back to another era when times were tough and tradition was one of the few things folks could call their own. In the middle of the Great Depression, at a camp near where WPA workers are constructing Oregon's Timberline Lodge, five strangers arrive from different parts of the country in search of work and a place to call home. Even as they must shed one way of life for another, and though they have lost everything they hold dear, optimism lives on. Funny and irreverent, Canta y no llores (Sing and Don't Cry) reminds us all that the only thing to fear — in life or death — is fear itself.
Canta y no llores plays Oct. 30-Nov. 15, 2009 at the Milagro Theatre (525 SE Stark St., Portland). Performances are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.; Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m.; and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $20-$22 ($16 for students/seniors) from 503-236-7253, www.milagro.org or the PDX Ticket Network community box office at the Hollywood Theatre 1-9 p.m. daily.
The opening night performance on Friday, Oct. 30 includes a complimentary post-play reception catered by La Bamba restaurant. Prior to the Sunday matinee on Nov. 1, there will be a free reading of original stories and poetry from Los PorteÃƒÆ’±os writers group beginning at 12 noon; following the matinee on Nov. 1, there will be a free post-play discussion with director and cast.
