The perfect Christmas gift for kids? The magic of theatre
Sales for the shows “INSIDE and OUT of me” and “Una famiglia di INCANTO” open today, Friday 1st December, at Teatro Doglio.
Imagine walking through the doors of a theatre with your little ones: it is the starting point for a journey full of discoveries that leave an indelible mark on their growth. Thanks to its magical and engaging atmosphere, it offers children a series of benefits that go far beyond simple entertainment.
First of all, creativity: the theatre is like a “laboratory of fantasy”, an extraordinary place where stories come to life in the spotlight and ignite the imagination. Seeing characters played live and following compelling storylines stimulates children’s creativity and encourages them to explore fantasy worlds and acquire the ability to think critically.
But theatre is also a school of empathy: sitting in the audience, children find themselves immersed in stories that tell experiences that are often different from those they already know. Therefore, the process of identifying with the characters and understanding their emotions helps them develop a deeper connection with the world around them, improving their empathy.
Again, from a linguistic point of view, the theatrical environment is a real treasure. The little ones have the opportunity to be confronted with a rich and varied language and, thus, they can increase their vocabulary and refine their communication skills.
Listening carefully to theatrical dialogues becomes a practical exercise that facilitates them in more effective communication. In addition, following an intricate plot and understanding the details of a show requires constant mental effort, and training that perfects cognitive abilities.
But perhaps one of the most valuable aspects is the social dimension. Sitting next to other spectators, the children learn the rules of living together, the importance of respecting silence and sharing a common experience. The theatre then becomes a reason for interaction in society, where laughter, applause and shared glances promote balanced growth.
Finally, actively participating in a performance and being part of an engaged audience offers a sense of belonging and recognition.
Theatre for children turns out to be, in short, an educational journey that nourishes their mind, heart and spirit, an opportunity to learn, grow and create memories that will accompany them throughout their lives.
With this in mind, choosing to give children tickets for theatrical performances for Christmas is a gesture that holds a deep and unique meaning and that reflects the intention to give something more precious and lasting than traditional toys or video games.
In fact, unlike material objects that can quickly lose their charm, the time spent in the theatre remains etched in the memory of children as it enriches their emotional and cultural baggage with meaningful experiences.
In addition, giving tickets for a show also means promoting quality time with the family: sharing this experience with loved ones strengthens emotional bonds and becomes an opportunity to experience emotions and reflections together in an engaging context.
Let’s not forget that this type of gift represents a valuable alternative to the consumerism often associated with the holiday season and promotes culture and experience rather than mere material possessions.
The unmissable shows at Teatro Doglio
Speaking of unique and exciting theatrical experiences to enjoy with the family, ticket sales open on Friday 1st of December for the shows Una famiglia di INCANTO and INSIDE and OUT of Me, staged at the Doglio Theatre, the second largest theatre in the capital as well as the pride of the 5-star Palazzo Doglio hotel, on 27th of January and 24th of February 2024 respectively.
After the great success of and waiting to host “The Bad Grinch Who Hated Christmas” scheduled for December 23rd, these are two shows that complete “Cagliari da Favola”, the review born from the magical world of “Teatro da Favola”, the Pietro Clementi company, born 7 years ago, which thanks to its immersive and interactive shows has been able to revolutionize the world of family theatre, beating all attendance and box office records in Milan and Rome.
“Una famiglia di INCANTO”, which will be staged on January 27th 2024 at 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm, is an exciting adventure, suitable for children aged 3 and up, which celebrates family bonds and love thanks to a fun and cheerful show, with songs sung live.
The members of the INCANTO family, Isabela, Aunt Pepa, Uncle Felix and their cousins, have a special power.
Everyone except Mirabel. She, however, will be the key to saving the family from the strange curse that is falling on the house, sending an extraordinary message: each of us is special in our own way and the unity of family is the greatest power we can have.
“INSIDE and OUT of me”, which will be staged on Saturday, February 24th at 3:30 pm and 6:30 pm, is one of the greatest masterpieces for the whole family in recent years. A show that explores the emotions of children and parents through the vicissitudes of Riley, an 11-year-old girl, whose mind is inhabited by five emotions (Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness) that will begin to go haywire when she is forced to change cities.
A show, also suitable for children from the age of three, which will make young and old smile and be moved, reminding adults how vulnerable they become when emotions take over.
