After hosting a successful ROAR festival in August, Barefeet Theatre is back with a bang presenting a series of family friendly events to make your Christmas filled with fun, laughter, spectacle and a lot of Christmas Cheer.
Following 4 years of enchanting Christmas performances, Barefeet will present 14 performances of their festive offering ‘The Labyrinth’. This year we have an action packed story which promises illusion, beautiful music, spectacle and daring choreography. The play will be directed by our special Spanish guest director Montse Gili.
The story revolves around a girl named Sarah. One night she gets so annoyed with her brothers unstoppable crying that she wishes he would just disappear. Unfortunately the Goblin King grants her this wish and her brother disappears. Her search for him leads her into the magical works of the Labyrinth where she must navigate her way between giants, talking worms and the bog of eternal stench. Will she make it to the centre of the Labyrinth before the clock strikes 12?
“The play is inspired by the popular children’s classic movie. Expect a magical spectacle, passion and lots of laughter wrapped in the Christmas spirit”, said Artistic Director Adam Mc Guigan.
In keeping with Barefeet’s ultimate goal – paving a way for happy child development for children at risk of disengaging from their communities by using arts as a tool - Barefeet invites over 1,000 young people from Lusaka’s orphanages and drop in centres to share in the Christmas Activities and enjoy a bit of Christmas Spirit.
The play will run at The Lusaka Playhouse from Monday December 2 to December 6 at the following times; Monday December 2nd and Tuesday December 3rd at 10 hours and 13 hours. Wednesday December 4th, Thursday December 5th and Friday December 6th at 10 hours, 13 hours and 19 hours. Tickets are K50 for adults and K30 for children.
