Katcha and the Devil and Other Czechoslovakian Tales
Vít Horejš performs a one-man show of Czech fairy tales (in English) replete with kings, clever village maidens, witches and spirits. His marionettes speak in a dozen voices, dance, play violin, swim and fly. The program will be composed of favorite Czech fairy tales such as "Salt over Gold," the story of a Princess who values her father "only" as much as salt, is banished, but returns to save her father when salt disappears, “The Snow Maiden Snehurka” in which a childless couple find a little girl in a winter blizzard, and "The Wandering Egg," a Czech variation on the Bremen Musician Story. Recommended for children ages 7 to 12 years old.
