We’ll be celebrating Latino Heritage Month in collaboration with The Spanish Action League of Onondaga County (La Liga) and La Joven Guardia del Teatro Latino with Jose Miguel Hernandez Hurtado’s adaptation of the children’s story Meñique.
The legendary story of Meñique (known in other stories as Little Tom Thumb), by José Martí, tells the tale of three brothers who, because of poverty and the urging of their father, abandon their homeland to seek better luck elsewhere. They learn that in a foreign kingdom, the king offers a reward to whoever is able to cut down a large tree that keeps the castle in semi-darkness, and, also, the kingdom without water.
Meñique represents courage, but he is also the little learned one who, thanks to this trait, confronts the king, providing a moral lesson. The character becomes a hero who effectively demonstrates that knowledge is more important than force.

October 9, 2015 8:00pm
