Fairy tale-theatre (3-10 years)
"The Ugly Grandpa" is the fairy tale that talks about the importance of being different and accepted by others, about loving one's neighbor, about the need for adventure and searching
The well-known story of Hans Christian Andersen, adapted for a theatrical performance. It tells the life of an ugly duckling, who, chased by the teasing of the other animals, runs away. On his way he meets wild geese, hunters, a spaniel duck, a capricious cat... When despair is about to bend him he discovers that he is a beautiful swan.
On the digital disc that accompanies the release, our little friends will hear the entire performance that was staged in September 2014 at the "Aristotelio" theater in Thessaloniki, directed by Dimitris Adamis . With the well-known music of Amadeus Mozart and a brand new finale song written especially for the show by Kanaris Keramaris , the whole show looks like a lively, joyful game. The actors unfold in front of the children the magical tangle of the fairy tale playing in a funny and tender way of modern theatrical performance.
