  7. Press Release April 26, 2021 Musical Theatre Alive and Well in Lakeside! The performing arts have become very dormant worldwide over the past 12 months. Closely packed theaters and concert halls are not conducive to pandemic safety. Michael Reason conductor of the Lake Chapala Community Orchestra, has used this time to create a new Broadway revue featuring three of Lakeside´s most talented performers. On Sunday May 30 area residents will get the opportunity to experience Back to Broadway with Amaranta Santos, Laura Medina and Doug Voet in a carefully designed show featuring songs from hit musicals such as A Chorus Line, Kiss Me Kate, Wicked and Follies. “Before I had a career as an orchestral conductor in Canada I spent many years as a theatrical Music Director in England” says Reason. “Creating this revue is taking me back to my roots” What will make this revue different and exciting is that instead of just a piano accompanying the singers the audience will experience the songs as they were meant to be heard – with a full orchestra! “As much as I would like to have a real live orchestra due to pandemic protocols we can´t at this time. Instead I have arranged all the songs for a virtual orchestra!” comments Reason. “The results are backing tracks that sound just like the real thing!” All of the performers have extensive backgrounds in musical theatre especially Doug Voet who played Joseph in the original Broadway production of the Lloyd Weber/Tim Rice hit show “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” With an increasing number of people at Lakeside having been vaccinated more of us will be comfortable getting out and, once again, enjoying live performances. Performance date is Sunday May 30 at 6pm. This performance is part of “Concerts in the Park” produced by Steve Balfour to benefit the Lake Chapala Society and what could be better than enjoying this Back to Broadway in a wonderful garden setting. We ask that people follow pandemic precautions including wearing masks and social distancing. Tickets are $300 pesos and can be purchased at the Lake Chapala Society, Monday to Saturday from 10:00 – 1:30, or on the LCS website

Course Fee: $350 MXN Instructor: Alfredo Pérez Course Dates: Thursday, Jun 03 Course Time: Monday, 1:00 to 3:30 pm Course Location: Veranda Min/Max Students required: 6/12 Description: Cultural shock is a normal part of life when we move to another country whose habits are different, we have to observe and learn the local rules of urbanity, what body language issues are appropriate and which are not. Why the behavior of the inhabitants of the new place is different. What do local people expect from me as a new inhabitant of the area? What phrases should I use and at what times? What should I understand about the time structure of the local people so different from mine? Why are the procedures with the authorities so complicated? And a long etc. Our intention is to help you understand these basic and necessary questions for the real and adequate coexistence with my new neighbors. Another way to know Mexico. Update: we come with a new edition for 2021. I will share with you more about the Mexicans' mindset throughout history to understand why we behave as we do in our present. In addition to other data that has been asked over time that can answer many questions about things that happen so commonly.
  12. Chapala is vaccinating teachers this week. Probably too busy to add Ajijic also.
  13. Most of the village houses from at least Pedro Moreo west past Danza del Sol have been so marked. Doubt that they are all easy prey, including my Mexican employee.
  14. In this case,NOT as artsnob says.. It's legit.
  15. My employee saw a worker with vest labeled Brigadista de Jalisco. Google advises that these are stateworkers who come around checking water supplies for mosquitos. I remember them from several years ago.if you answeryour door they check for standing water and have a baggie of some sort that they put in your tinacos, aljibe, fountain, etc.
  16. Haven't walked down to the park but a birdseye view from my upstairs corner window show nothing happening.. no traffic, security, etc etc I heard that the second shots would not be at the malecon as there are too many entrances/exits to control crowd. Possibly the charro ring by El Torrito whenever.
  17. Mine is fine.... no changes at all.
