Have fun with the Polish Theatre Institute!

BERGAMUTY ISLANDS

Jan Brzechwa

Brzechwa taught and played in the past and plays now.

Please check personally that we are not bragging!

"Bergamuty Islands" is a poetry and music show according to

Jan Brzechwa’s poem.

The performance is for audience in every age.

The world of animals, objects and people are intertwined in a carousel of "strange" and surprising situations. Will the crane marry a heron, should the frog be dry, is tripe with oil and eggs a delicacy of a hen,

is a weird duck a weirdo and will Katarzyna come out of a cold?

We will try to answer such questions with the greatest accuracy and with flying colors.

THE CHEATING FLEA

Jan Brzechwa

Colorful and graceful adventures of the Cheating Flea.

The flea tries her "vile" tricks in various situations. Everyone is

fooled by them.

But, .... up to a point! Will Flea be punished for her combinations?

Will she go to jail for her "scams"?

You will find the answer in our performance.

Children, invite your parents to the theatre!

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK

by Dream Tale Puppets

"Jack and the Beanstalk" is a joyous, original adaptation of the classic tale about poor Jack who went to sell his cow and came home with three magic beans. Jack's daring adventure up the huge beanstalk helps him and his

mother out of their difficult financial situation, even if his mother is a bit worried about the moral issues surrounding this unusual way to acquire wealth. The show is created in a Story and Puppet Time format where one performer provides narration and gives voices to the characters and a second performer operates hand puppets, figure puppets, and a marionette, and performs in mask.
