Tico Tales

Tico Tales - a new bi-lingual musical by Sgouros and Bell

At the Players Theatre - 115 MacDougal Street
July 10 - 26th - Tuesday - Sunday at 11a

The Legend of Sibu

Tico Tales, a bi-lingual musical adaptation of traditional Costa Rican folk tales, has been selected for the summer production. The creative team, Michael Sgouros and Brenda Bell, who have written 8 original musicals together, chose this piece after bringing their production of "A Christmas Carol" to Costa Rica this past December. Inspired by the beauty of the nature, the warmth of the people and the rhythms of their community, Sgouros and Bell returned to New York excited to share a theatre piece that embodies this rich culture.

About the Show - Tico Tales


Tico Tales is a magical journey to Costa Rica through storytelling, dance and music. Enter the rain forest as the rhymes and legends of an ancient culture sweep you away to a long-forgotten land. Hear the call of the beautiful Quetzal bird, stump your foot as the cast of six actors and two musicians play a drumming tale, sneak a peek into a traditional tribal dance while the "little devils" chase away the bull and celebrate love with the Indian princess Cira as she is transformed into a volcano.

This show will captivate your heart and make your heart beat to a new, but ancient drum!
