Martina finds friendship and happiness on a search for love in this bilingual musical

Wednesday, September 14, 2016 — In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Center for Puppetry Arts is pleased to present Teatro SEA’s La Cucarachita Martina (Martina the Little Roach) from September 28 – October 9. When Martina discovers a penny and buys a tin of face powder, suddenly everyone wants to marry her; but what she really wants is friendship, kindness, thoughtfulness and sharing. This production is based on a well-known Puerto Rican and Cuban children’s tale and is peppered with Latin rock ’n’ roll musical numbers. This bilingual show is performed in both English and Spanish.
