Two original children’s shows at the Baxter for children aged between 2 to 9 years, will delight the little ones (and their parents) during the school holidays, from 26 to 30 March 2019, at 12 and 2pm daily.
The two brand-new productions, Titum-Titum (at 12pm) and Lumka (at 2pm), use storytelling, puppetry and live music to bring to life a number of charming characters. They are presented by a formidable team of multi-award-winning local artists, determined to create a memorable theatrical experience for young people.
Children’s shows at the Baxter
Lumka is a puppetry production, directed by Janni Younge and stars Pedro Espi-Sanchis (also known as Pedro, The Music Man), Roshina Ratnam and Asanda Rilityana.
A little girl learns to tame her great fear and fly free with her courage as she sets out to rescue her best friend and oldest toy Kiki. Her quest is filled with adventures, slightly sticky situations and a realisation that her fears are not always what they first appear to be.
Titum-Titum is directed by Joanna Evans and features the same cast in a humorous and honest reflection on preparing for new life and creating family in unexpected places. Adara learns that she is expecting a child, so she escapes the city to be with her oldest friend, Nobomi. The ups and downs of her pregnancy follow, taking the audience on a journey which begins with the sound of a heartbeat, includes bizarre food cravings, and a baby’s first kick.
Audiences are invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in between the two shows, in the Baxter’s secure garden with its trees and rolling lawns. Alternatively, they can grab a mini pizza or muffin from the restaurant or a slush-puppy and snacks in the main foyer.
