Despite earlier reports to the contrary, the Pelican Theatre of La Paz will be returning for the January/February 2017 season! The upcoming production is entitled Love, Death, and Other Comedies. Unlike previous productions, this season’s event will be held in a performance space at Ciudad de los Niños, the children’s home adjacent to the Santuario on 5 de febrero.

Earlier in the fall, scheduling conflicts at the Pelican Theatre’s previous performance space made a hiatus this season seem inevitable. Thanks to the efforts of Juli Goff, without whose unwavering support the Pelican Theatre would indeed be on hiatus, the theatre company has found a new home for the upcoming production.

20160111-DSC_8527Artistic director David Coxwell tells us that, as in previous seasons, this year’s production will consist of three short plays. Some of the favorite actors from previous seasons will be returning, along with one or two new faces added to the cast. Also as in previous seasons, at the end of the evening audience members will have the chance to meet and mingle with the cast while enjoying an après-show glass of wine.

Performance dates are set for January 31st and February 1st through 4th, 2017. Tickets, when they go on sale, will be available at Allende Books in La Paz and El Tecolote Bookstore in Todos Santos.

More information, as it becomes available, will be posted on the Pelican Theatre’s Facebook page as well as their blog,
