Three Kings Day at Teatro SEA, Latino theatre for young audiences in the Lower East Side, is normally a free event where children can meet the Three Kings and receive a gift. But the Latin equivalent of visiting Santa is going to be different this year.
20th Teatro SEA Three “Queens” Day 2020
To keep New Yorker’s safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, Teatro SEA’s 2021 Three Kings Day celebration goes virtual at Teatro SEA’s Facebook page on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
Instead of giving gifts directly to children this year, Teatro SEA is donating gifts to Lower East Side schools and community organizations.
For the 20th Anniversary celebration, Teatro SEA decided to recognize the Three Queens. Why not? We come from strong female leadership traditions in both Indigenous Africa and the Indigenous Caribbean.
The 3 Queens are:
- Verónica Albornoz, host of Telemundo’s “Un Nuevo Dia” @AlbornozVero @veronicaalbornoztv
- Camille Napoleón, community leader at Baruch Houses in the Lower East Side
- Libertad Guerra, Clemente Soto executive director
We all know it’s been a hard year for New Yorkers and for our own Latin/Black communities in particular. But it’s important to carry on our traditions.
Donate to the Toy Drive
If you want to be happy, help a child be happy.
One of our most precious Three Kings Day memories is of a little girl holding the doll the Three Kings gave her on Three Kings Day. It was a simple thing and may have been the only gift she received, but it was the most precious object in the universe. The joy in that little girl’s heart has always stayed with us.
Donate now. The Toy Drive Fundraiser ends on December 22.
In person donations can be made at The Clemente Center (107 Suffolk St) on January 5, 2021 from 10am to 4pm.
