Easter holiday was coming up and friends of ours announced their visit with their 7 year old daughter. So the question came up what we could do that means fun for the adults as well as the child. The weather forecast said it would be snowing, so there went the egg hunt in the park. After some serious thinking we came up with the idea to go to the puppetry. Their playhouse is rather small, but very nicely decorated. it somehow felt like going back in time. Hello nostalgia! They have a small snack shop on premises and accept only cash. Is there another way to pay?
The play on display was called the “Rusty Knight and the magic fairy”, a Musical. The story goes like this: While cleaning the attic the knight frees a fairy that has accidentally locked herself up in one of the boxes. Since she is grateful she grants him the compulsory 3 wishes. Well this knight thinks he is Mr. Smart and his last wish is that from now on all his wishes should become true. The poor fairy exhausts herself by fulfilling even the dumbest ones and soon wishes for herself to be locked up again. Eventually even the knight comes to the conclusion that it is not always funny when all your wishes are fulfilled. And what do we learn from that play? Think well before you wish something.
I really can recommend this playhouse. They even do have special events for adults. For example they played the Magic flute with their string puppets. Nice to see that there still is a form of entertainment that doesn’t need all that technical stuff and is actually hand made.
