February Newsletter

It’s February! The weather is still chilly, sure. But it’s the month of Carnival, Valentine’s Day, and picnics – so there’s loads to look forward to. If you’re at a loss for what to get up to with your little ones, don’t worry, because we’ve assembled a few brilliant ideas right here.

Little Moods (ZiguZajg)

Little Moods is an interactive theatre show targeted towards children ages 0-2 years. As part of the ZiguZajg season (for those who are unaware, the ZiguZajg festival is the leading children’s theatre festival on the island), the event will expose your little ones to the magic of theatre in the perfect child-friendly environment, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

A bit more about the piece: “Georgie doesn’t speak much, but the talking part will be in the hands of another two characters, Ryan and Martina, who will walk along with Georgie throughout the entire course of the story. Their special friendship, the interaction with the audience and the technical effects used will create an engaging experience which the target audience will surely relish.”

Dates: 11-13 February
