Qualifying Rounds for Children Narrators in Teatro Santa Ana

By Karla Ortiz

On Thursday, November 23, the Regional Qualifying Rounds of Child Narrators were held at the Teatro Santa Ana tby the Director of Cultural Promotion and the Biblioteca Pública. Seven contestants from the municipalities of Comonfort, San Luis de la Paz, and Dr. Mora stood out for their great acting, diction, and enthusiasm in telling their stories. In this event, directed by Professor Leandro Baeza, Eva Turrubiates and her daughter Eva Luz were present. They have been a great influence on the young people of Salamanca in terms of literature and narrative. Also present were Enrique Carrillo, Treasurer of the Biblioteca Pública, and Paola Nakamura president of the scholarship committee.

The jury panel included Beatriz Gutiérrez Padilla, Reading Promoter and Workshop teacher, and Maestra Sara Zepeda Muñoz, Oral Narrator and Workshop teacher. Each of the children presented a different story, very much in their own way and style, with a personal touch that gave the storytelling the energy to connect with the audience.

The presentation was divided into categories A, B, and C. In category A, from 7 to 9 years old, were María Melín Escamilla Alvarado from the municipality of Dr. Mora with the story “El león y el ratón,” Carmen Lizeth López Mancilla from San Luis de la Paz with the story “La liebre y la tortuga,” and Denis Hernández Maldonado from Comonfort, who was the first place winner in this category with the story “Historia de Dos.” In category B, from 10 to 12 years old, were Berenice Estefanía Bárcenas from Comonfort with the story “Happy Birthday, Winnie,” Dulce María Martínez García from San Luis de la Paz with the story “Sapo es Sapo,” and Dayra Sugery Reveles Leaños from Dr. Mora, who was the first place winner in this category with “La liebre y la tortuga.” In category C, from 13 to 15 years old, there was just one participant, David Castillo Montoya, with the story “Las Verduras.” All the first place winners automatically go to the state finals that will be held in the city of León, Gto.

To complete the narratives, teacher Eva Turrubiates took the stage to delight all with an authentic horror story, the harvest of one of her daughter, Eva Luz Turrubiates,’ interviews during the story research for her first book.
