Jacó Happenings

September 21, 2013

Jacó is now home to a Turtle Hatchery, located Jacó Centro. Thanks to the national police officers for helping make the project a success and to Philip Share, Jacó Rustico and Jeff Fisher for their collaboration, which made it possible to buy material to build the hatchery. For more information, contact the Central Pacific chamber of Commerce at 2643-2853.

If you would like to join the Jacó lifeguard team, this is your opportunity. Marvin Peréz will be starting a volunteer lifeguarding project, and the first meeting was held yesterday at 7 p.m. in the Central Park of Jacó. 

Teatro Jacó will be hosting an acting workshop Sept. 30-Oct. 30 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. for ages 7-19. Cost is $120. The acting workshop follows the “play-way” style of teaching by engaging students in play-like situations to develop their imagination and creative skills. Children are taught not only to use their minds but also their bodies, which helps build expressive abilities and self-confidence. The workshop aims to train them not only for stage, but for leadership in life as well.

The students will be working on scenes from famous plays. They will each have a part to play. Darren Lee Cole, artistic director of Teatro Jacó, will direct the plays, and he will have an assistant speaking Spanish. There will be special Halloween performances for all the students and their parents, with a Halloween party at the theatre following the performance. Teatro Jacó also invites you to sponsor a child in the community to do this workshop.  

Teatro Jacó’s mission is to bring culture and the arts to the communities of Garabito through theatrical, dance, musical productions and workshops combining professional artists with our local talent. For more information, email info@teatrojaco.com or call 2630-9812.
