FAVES AT FRINGEKIDS!
There’s no better place to introduce youngsters to good theatre than the Fringe, and several shows at this year’s
FringeKids! (Palmerston Library Theatre) look promising.
The Adventures Of Mazel And Schlimazel (from Friday, July 8) is a musical adaptation of a Yiddish children’s tale, complete with klezmer music, while Wanda T. Grimsby: Detective Extraordinaire (from Saturday, July 9), uses her head to save the world from disaster.
A commedia-based piece about a stranger who offers townspeople their heart’s desire, The Travelling Salesman & His Magical Suitcase Of Desires! (from Thursday, July 7) delivers colourful characters and a lesson buried in an entertaining story.
And if you want to introduce the kids to the classics, Romeo And Juliet…
A Puppet Epic! (from Thursday, July 7) features muppet-like figures retelling the popular love tale.
Kids should dig Mazel And Schlimazel.
