New York, NY – Teatro SEA is proud to announce its Spring 2022 SEAson, featuring extended performances of its new puppet theater production “César Chávez and the Migrants (The César Chávez Story),” the return of beloved bilingual fairytale “Ricitos and the Three Bears /Ricitos y los tres ositos,” and additional performances and web series later this spring.


César Chávez and the Migrants (The César Chávez Story)

Performances: Saturdays – April 2, 9, 16, 23

Time: 3pm

Recommended for children in 5th grade and up

Location: Teatro SEA | 107 Suffolk Street, NY 10021 (J/M/Z to Essex St. or F to Delancey St.)

Written and directed by Manuel Antonio Morán, the bilingual production highlights Chávez’s life story for a new generation and highlights Chávez’s early life as well as his partnership with Dolores Huerta, activism with the National Farm Workers Association, the 1968 grape boycott, and his ongoing commitment to nonviolent civil rights work. 

“César Chávez is an American hero. His activism and his victories for the labor movement are well-known in California and across the West Coast, but his contributions are less familiar to many New Yorkers,” said Dr. Morán, founder, CEO and artistic director of Teatro SEA. “Through the medium of puppetry, we hope to share his legacy with a new audience and an entire generation.” 

The production is also inspired by Victorian-era Toy Theater, a form of miniature theater dating back to the early 19th century, and features handmade engraved puppets designed by artist and puppeteer Cristina Arancibia Brecht. As part of the story, one of the farm laborer’s boxes of fruit is transformed into a miniature puppet theater, hosting an 8-inch high performance that tells the story of Chávez and his accomplishments.

Created by Manuel Antonio Morán, “Los Grises/The Gray Ones” is a tribute to our elders through the art of puppetry. Set to the backdrop of boleros, tangos, mambos and various Latin musical genres from yesteryear, characters in “Los Grises” share their experiences, dreams and memories through movement, dance and pantomime – not words. This delightful walk down memory lane includes hybrid puppets and music, which makes it suitable for all audiences. It can be performed anywhere, demonstrating the power of puppetry to connect generations.

“Not everything in life is black or white,” said Moran. “Los Grises is a celebration of old age and a call to inclusiveness, with the aim of motivating and encouraging us to pay greater attention to the well-being of our seniors.”
