This year, as part of the Kids Euro Festival in Washington, D.C., the Greek children's theater company "Aeroplio" will stage three performances geared toward young theater patrons (ages 6-10).
"Through the centuries-old tradition of Greek storytelling, a fantastic and heroic universe comes to life. Meet clever magicians, crafty fairies, fierce yet funny dragons — and help decide how the story will unfold. Videos, masks, puppets — and even umbrellas and brooms! — become out-of-this-world characters in a tale like no other!"
The performance dates are:
Saturday, October 15 at 6:00pm at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage:
Sunday, October 16 at 1:00pm at La Maison Francaise:
Reservoir Road, Washington, DC 20005 - (202) 232-7267
Monday, October 17 at 10:00am and 12:00pm at the Studio Theater:
1501 14th St., NW, Washington, DC 20005 - (202) 232 7267
The Aeroplio Theater company, founded in Athens, is no stranger to participating in international theater festivals.
