Kids at the house 2008 tickets go on sale Wednesday 5 Dec. The program features regulars such as Little Big Shots, Baby Proms and an exciting line up that will keep your family busy for the whole year.
We are looking forward to the Danish theatre company Gruppe 38 in May with A Sonatina - a reworking of Little Red Riding Hood. Gruppe 38 presented the little Match girl earlier this year and it was wonderful.
Set as a story within a story, a band of travelling players tells the tale of Little Red Riding Hood from the back of its pick-up truck. But this take is rather different: the main characters are a newly laid egg, a potato with a cold and a nasty potato masher. Even better, the star performer is a live chicken and nothing can happen until she produces the egg.
A Babies Proms highlight is The Drum in April.
A young Indian boy dreams of owning a drum. His mother, who can’t afford to buy him one, gives him a piece of wood instead. What follows is an inspiring journey in which the young boy learns he can fulfil his own desires by being kind and helpful to others.
Based on a traditional Indian folktale, The Drum is a charming musical adventure with Indian dance, percussion and a sitar.
