Students from the third grade and up who are more fluent in English are also most welcome to attend.

The duration of the show is approximately 60 minutes, with an actor talkback session afterwards. Price: € 10 per ticket. This includes a textbook and detailed materials for working with students. The materials can be downloaded from our website at no extra cost.

Due to popular demand our Plays for Young Audiences programme has been extended to include entertainment for the whole family over the Christmas period. This silly season children and their families can watch Cinderella, a classic pantomime suitable for all ages during December.
