On the 25th of February, the children’s play “”The Boy with the Blue Hair”, a Fournos Theatre Production, will visit London to perform at the Carnival Celebration an event organised by the Hellenic Centre & Lykion ton Hellinidon. The play was awarded with funding from Stavros Niarchos Foundation and it has already been seen from thousands of children and schools in Greece.
Fournos Theatre will present “The Boy with The Blue Hair”, an interactive play in Greek and a little bit of English, to introduce the young audience (3-12 years old) to the world of Theatre. F.R. a sweet but shy boy with the blue hair, tries to cope in a city with red hair people. When his only friend, a soft enchanted toy called Merber, gets lost in the forest, F.R. needs to face his fears and go look for him.
An interactive play about friendship and diversity and how they shouldn’t be seen as obstacles in our lives. The show will be followed by lots of creative activities related to carnival like making kites and masks, Gaitanaki, the traditional maypole dancing and of course a great fancy dress party. So dress up and join us.
