Look! Flamingos!

The latest production by the Aperitivo Performance Group is a musical comedy entitled “Paradise Island” to be staged in May.

“Paradise Island” is indeed paradise for bird watchers (even when they’re looking in the wrong direction).

The wildlife is amazing, but unscrupulous developers think that plastic flamingos in a Miami-style hotel would be even better, so they want the islanders and their houses cleared out of the way.

Just in case this situation sounds familiar, Aperitivo Performance Group would like to reassure everyone that “Paradise Island” is totally imaginary and, anyway, even if it did exist it would be a long way away from here, and that the cast of corrupt politicians, shady businessmen, lovable islanders and hookers with hearts of gold – oh, and the bird-watchers of course – have no existence outside of Aperitivo’s latest musical comedy.

Performances, commencing at 7.30pm, will take place at the following venues:
Museum, São Brás: Friday and Saturday, May 5 and 6
Casa do Povo, Moncarapacho: Saturday, May 13
Clube de Tavira: Saturday, May 20
Tickets: €8
