Lollipops: Martina the Beautiful Cockroach

by Carmen Agra Deedy

10:00 am: Hendricks Library, Simpsonville
11:30 am: Hughes Main Library, Greenville

Featuring Daniel Kirkpatrick, Percussion

ADMISSION IS FREE!

Martina the beautiful cockroach doesn’t know coffee beans about love and marriage.  That’s where her Cuban family comes in.  While some of the Cucarachas offer her gifts to make her more attractive, only Abuela, her grandmother, gives her something really useful: un consejo increible, some shocking advice.  At first, Martina is skeptical of her Abueala’s unorthodox suggestion, but when suitor after suitor fails the “Coffee Test,” she wonders if a little green cockroach can ever find true love.

Lollipops concerts introduce children to classical music and the instruments of the orchestra through interactive concerts presented by members of the Greenville Symphony Orchestra.  During each concert, chamber ensembles accompany a storybook reading.  And, of course, audience members receive a lollipop at the end of each performance!

Lollipops concerts are appropriate for children ages 2 to 7, although all children and adults are welcome.  Programs last approximately 30 minutes.  Reservations are not required and admission is free.

Lollipops is sponsored by BMW Manufacturing Co.
