The Princess and the Secret of the Dragon
It's time for a new farytale - this time the princess saves the prince!
A new theatrical production for Children an their parents from age 6 and up.
The sophisticated production takes place on a large stage, with a cast of 14 actors and actresses, and combines first-class acting and choreography with stunning set design and costumes, and powerful original music.
The play tells the story of Princess Althea, who embarks on a journey to rescue her prince after he falls over the wall that protects their Kingdom from a dangerous dragon. It's a gripping and inspiring play with important messages about facing our fears and seeking the truth.
Princess Althea is nothing like the passive princesses whom we usually meet in children’s theater and literature in Israel. She does not wait around to be saved by a prince. She takes charge of her own life, overcoming her fears, and using her courage, intelligence, and leadership skills to save her whole town (and her prince). As such, she is a positive role model for Israeli boys and girls throughout the country.
The play premiered at the prestigious Tel Aviv Museum of Art in July (12,13 and 14). and received rave reviews from the audience.
