Juan Pelotero is a popular traditional character whose origins date back to the fifteenth century and that goes out in the streets accompanied by his gang, the Innocents, formed by the Scribe, the Judge and the Jailer.
They carry a baton, an old book and a turkey pen, symbols of municipal authority that they use to paramulcate people for the first thing they can think of, as ridiculous as it may seem.The appearance of the set is quirky.
The main protagonist paints his face with a tile and wanders wielding an instrument shaped by a stick whose end is topped by a rag ball (hence his name).
The game is basically that any Calasparreño ocalasparreña gave him some coins to hit any other ... When Juan Pelotero arrived to fulfill his assignment, the victim had to pay more money to not hit him or to return the ball to the first.
This year the group invited to represent Juan Pelotero and Los Inocentes is ElMolino Producciones, a theater company that has entertainment and entertainment professionals for the family audience with more than fifteen years of experience in the sector.
Among his recent productions are El Libro del Selva, La Mventura de Mowgli - Best Children's Musical at the IX Musical Theater Awards - and La Dama y el Vagabundo El Musical, which during these days runs through all the theaters of Spanish geography (represented last September in Calasparra).
