The best gift of all during the festive season is time spent together as a family. This theatre programme allows you to do just that.
It might not come wrapped in paper and tied up with ribbons and bows, but there’s a present waiting for your whole family offered by Traffo and the Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg.
It’s the Chrëschtdeeg am Theater programme, and it’s like a big box of chocolates to pick from, with shows at the Rotondes, the Grand Théâtre and Théâtre des Capucins from 27 to 30 December. Particularly yummy looking are several productions without words, and therefore no language barriers.
For example, there’s a 15-minute show, “Rêveries”, aimed at ages 3 and up, which sounds really cosy. It is free and plays continuously between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day in the courtyard of the Grand Théâtre from 27 to 30 December.
Then there’s a mime show, “Monsieur und Madame Poiseau” (27 December at 3 and 7 p.m.), in which an elderly gentleman plans a surprise party for his wife’s 75th birthday. In “L’arbre” (29 December at 11 a.m., 3 and 5 p.m.), the Via Verde theatre company creates a dream tree house, while on 29 and 30 December, juggler Loïc Faure presents his solo show “Hom(m)”.
All of these goodies can be devoured by people from ages 5 or 7 up to 99, so leave great-great-grandma at home with the dog and bring the rest of the family.
Hang on there! There’s a present still unopened! Isn’t it great finding another treat when you thought the fun was over? On 27 December, when Christmas 2016 has just become a Christmas Past, pack up the kids to see “A Christmas Carol” at the Capucins. The lovely Larisa Faber and Damien Thill bring this classic to life, at 11 a.m. in Luxembourgish and at 3 p.m. in English.
