THEATRE ADVENTURE

The Theatre Adventure is primarily aimed at children of 12 or under, even pre-school age, but it is open to anyone. The guide will invite participants to use their imagination, tell stories about the forgotten puppets and abandoned props in the Attic, show the participants how to manage the lights and sound effects, and encourage them to invent stories and story lines of their own. From the Attic, the group will advance to the Dressing Room of the Arkadia Theatre, dress up in costumes and step into the limelight. During the Adventure, participants will invent and act scenes on the stage. Those who prefer not to act may arrange the lights or special effects, or design costumes. Group size max. 15 persons.

This walk, too, includes a visit to the stage of the Arkadia Theatre and the Dressing Room, which turns the history of theatre into a tangible experience. Group size max. 20 persons.
