CANTERBURY Tales, an English language musical production for children, launches its third season in Spain in Malaga City this Sunday.
British Parlon Film and Cup of Theatre companies, directed by Spanish woman Rebeca Cobos, produce this fun and educational production in English, which enables children to understand and enjoy the British literary classic using songs, music and puppets.
Live music is a constant ingredient of this children’s version of Chaucer’s stories as the all-British cast sing and play instruments.
Two brief tales narrated by peregrines on their way to Canterbury underline values including loyalty and responsibility for one’s actions.
The first is The Nun’s Priest’s Tale, in which the main characters, Russef the fox and Chanticleer the cockerel, tell of the importance of fighting arrogance through songs.
The second is The Wife of Bath’s Tale, a fun comedy in which a rude knight is forced to go on a journey that will teach him the meaning of respect.
Claire Monique Martin, Joanne Gale, Sam O’Hanlon and Matt Parsons will act, sing and play the violin, clarinet, piano, guitar and percussion instruments.
The production can be seen at the Echegaray Theatre in Malaga this Sunday, February 15, at midday and at 5pm. Tickets priced €6 can be obtained directly from the ticket office, by telephone on 952 076 262 or 902 360 295 or online from www.teatrocervantes.es or www.unientradas.es
