Center For Puppetry ArtsAtlanta’s Center For Puppetry Arts presents Teatro SEA in La Cucarachita Martina (Martina the Little Roach) October 5 – 16, 2011. This well-known Puerto Rican tale has been  transformed into a rock ‘n’ roll musical.

The Society of Educational Arts Inc. (SEA), New York City’s premier bilingual arts-in-education organization and Latino Theatre Company for young audiences, presents La Cucarachita Martina. This well-known tale originated as an oral tradition and was later adapted to literary form.

Teatro SEA will have audiences laughing, singing and loving Martina! When Martina discovers a penny and buys a tin of face powder, suddenly everyone wants to marry her. But what this lady roach wants is friendship, kindness, thoughtfulness and sharing. Join Teatro SEA for a bilingual (Spanish/English) tale that’s as cute and silly as Martina herself.

The show will run October 5 – 16 on Wednesdays through Fridays at  10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., Saturdays at noon and 2 p.m., and Sundays at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at the Center for Puppetry Arts at 1404 Spring Street.
