Children's Theater Festival

This is the 15th year that a local theater company, Teatrermitage, has put on a week-long children's film festival in our town. There are 7 nights of shows held in an outdoor amphitheater. A jury of children is selected each year with the important task of evaluating each production and choosing a festival winner. My younger son participated as a juror last year and it was quite an experience for him. He felt very important!

The festival is called Ti Fiabo e Ti Racconto. I have included a link to their website, but the information is all in Italian.

Last night we saw a lively and acrobatic version of Peter Pan.
Here Wendy is dancing with Peter's invisible shadow...

That's pretty cool. I love theater. My husband and I went to an outdoor production of Romeo and Juliet last Sunday. It was the highlight of my weekend.

Looks like so much fun!

Wonderful cultural exposure. Are your children equally adept in English and Italian?

Citymouse - I love the theater, too!

When did - it really is!

lakeviewer - my sons are much better in Italian, but they understand English and can get by. They don't really appreciate how lucky they are to be bilingual yet.
