San Pancho Header

 This year the event will be called Voilá! and will combine circus, orchestra, and the presentation of more than 150 young artists. It will be held at Bodega Circo, located on one side of the Bodega 3 on Tercer Mundo Avenue. The show kicks off at 7:30 p.m.

From March 21-24, this school—located in the tourism destination of San Francisco, Nayarit, known as the Cultural Capital of the Riviera Nayarit—will be transformed into an elaborate, fabulous stage for the talented kids and teens in this unique production. On this occasion, the Puerto Vallarta Orchestra School will be joining them.

The Circo de los Niños was created in 2011 by Gilles Ste-Croix, co-founder of the Cirque du Soleil, and designed by Monique Voyer. What started as an introduction to the circus arts has become a one-of-a-kind school with a professional team of instructors and an ever-growing number of students looking to experiment with the magic of the circus and other performing arts.

The children chosen to participate in the show live in San Pancho and Sayulita, and many of them have been with the program since its inception. They work hard five days a week from one to five hours a day, depending on their age, interest, and level of instruction. All proceeds from the event will be funneled to the youth program for San Pancho’s Circo de los Niños. The seats are all general admission, with the exception of a special area designated for the donors to the Dreamcatchers fund.

Act II announced its 2018-2019 theater season and is looking for cast members for next season's shows! General Auditions will be held at Act II Stages on Saturday, March 17, at 1:00 pm. The Act II Entertainment STAGES complex is located on the corner of Insurgentes and Basilio Badillo on the South side of Puerto Vallarta. 

Many people have told us that they would like to be involved in the theater, but are feeling scared or shy. You absolutely don't need to be afraid! Most of our performers on the Main Stage have never acted before, or may not have acted since high school. When you are cast into a production at Act II, you will go through an 8-week rehearsal process with the best directors in Mexico! You will learn how to act, you will make new friends, and you will become a part of the very special "Act II Family!"

We are excited to announce the list of shows that we plan on doing next year! Little Shop of Horrors, Hair, The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Rogers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, The Gershwin Music review, Nunsense AMEN, and I Love You You're Perfect, Now Change.

High on our wish list is Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, and to celebrate the very beginning of great theater in Puerto Vallarta, Act II Owner, Danny Mininni, will return to the Director's Chair with the play that started it all in Puerto Vallarta, The Foreigner. (All shows are subject to change, depending on casting.)

Come and join the fun at Act II Entertainment! Audition Saturday, March 17 at 1:00 pm!
