Manuel Antonio/ Quepos Tidings

March 19, 2010

We have great news from Boris Marchegiani, president of COPAZA (Association for Prevention, Safety and Peace in the Aguirre Canton): Quepos now has a theater that  seats 210 people. Located in the old PIMA building by the new marina, it has computerized electronic lights, sound equipment, a 10-by-14-meter stage and air-conditioning.

 

The Costa Rican-North American Cultural Center (CCCN) donated the stage curtains  from the Eugene O’Neill Theater in San José.

 

The COPAZA Theater is now officially part of the National Theater and CCCN performance circuits. Last weekend saw the theater’s first show, “Song of the Whales,” a play from the National Theater. The next performance will be March 24, featuring the Universidad Latina Symphony Orchestra. This is incredible cultural news for our area. For more information on the new theater or to help support its efforts, contact Hernán Quirós at hernanq@gaiahr.com.

 

Spay-neuter clinics are planned March 21 and 28 at three Quepos veterinary offices. Pam Grimm of Barks ‘n’ Bubbles Dog Grooming Salon (the green house two blocks north of the chamber of commerce) is the coordinator of the clinics and can be reached at 8335-5614 for appointments. Each operation will cost ¢6,000 (about $11). Please note that this clinic is for those who can’t afford regular vet costs.

 

This month’s Green Drinks takes place today at Hotel Arenas del Mar, 7 to 9 p.m.
