December is theatre season for kids

December is theatre season for kids

By Stephanie Horsman - December 2, 2021

Looking for something to do with the kids this holiday season? Why not take them to the Théâtre des Muses for some great shows that would make even Ebeneezer Scrooge crack a smile. 

The first show to be presented is A Light for Christmas (Une Lumiere Pour Noel). When P’titbout, decides he wants nothing to do with Christmas this year, a band of unlikely characters follow a light unknowingly emitted from him, leading them directly to his door step and turning the worst Christmas ever into one filled with wonder and magic.

The 40-minute production is suitable for kids aged two to 10 and will be playing on Wednesday 1st December at 4:30pm, Saturday, 4th December at 2:30pm and 4:30 pm, and on Sunday, 5th December at 11am and 3pm.

Next up is the classic tale of Pinocchio. In this interactive adaptation, ingenious staging combines masks, puppets, shadow theatre and magic to bring an edge to the story of the wooden boy who comes to life. True to the original, Pinocchio’s well-intentioned but naïve adventures lead him into a series of scrapes, and not even a friendly cricket who acts as his conscience can save him from himself. In the end, the love of his father brings him right, but in this version, it is up to the audience to decide if Pinocchio should be allowed to become a real boy or to remain a puppet forever.

Pinocchio runs for one hour on Wednesday 8th December at 4:30pm, on Saturday 11th at 2:30pm and 4:30pm, and on Sunday 12th December at 11am and 2:15pm. It is suitable for all ages.

The following show is The Beautiful Smooth Pear of Prince de Motordu. Set in the quirky, topsy-turvy world of a Prince who lives in a giant hat and has a flock of buttons rather than sheep. He battles with snow hens and cushions made of pies, and his life is settled. That is until the odd Princess Dézecolle arrives. Together they forge new paths and create a fun-filled world filled with jokes, poetry and song.

The performances are on Wednesday 15th December at 4:30pm and Saturday 18th December at 2:30 and 4:30pm. There is an additional showing on Sunday 19th at 11am. The play runs 50 minutes and is appropriate for kids four to 10-years-old.

Last up is a musical version of the story of Rudolph. Santa’s most famous reindeer wasn’t always such a hit with his peers and being different wasn’t always fun. The young Rudolph tries at first to run from his problems but finds that what sets him apart is what makes him so special.

Rudolph is perfect for those aged three to nine and the play runs 45 minutes. Performances are on Tuesday 28th December at 4:30pm, Wednesday 29th at 11am and 4:30pm, and Friday 30th December at 4:30pm.
