????????????????????????????In the wake of the American experience with two exciting guest performances at the New York International Fringe Festival, which was held last August with more than 200 companies from all over the world for a total of 1,200 performances, ExtraTeatro Extraordinary Theatre is pleased to introduce the first season of theater bilingual (English / Italian) for children and families in Rome, with shows staged on Saturday, from 4 October at the Teatro Belli (Trastevere) with two replicates at 16 and 17:30.

The two shows that will open the exhibition in Rome My friend monster and The Vagabond $ have found favor with audiences and critics in the Big Apple, with great reviews and enthusiasm of young and old.

The shows bilingual, designed, created and rehearsed for a young audience with a cast of professional actors, native English speakers, are sung and played live and encourage the active participation of children in the audience, which will be immediately captured by the fun and hilarious characters that will involve them with songs and interactive moments.

The design of the shows is a collaboration of professionals with diverse backgrounds and with long experience in the theater and in collaboration with schools from all over Italy: Arianna De Giorgi, Italian director graduated in film directing at New York University; Jason Goodman, musician and actor, as well as author of all the music and Daniela Remiddi, author of children’s theater, director and puppeteer with a strong experience of theater figure.

The Project ExtraTeatro Extraordinary Theatre then, proposing performances in the English language, is part of a full-on as part of a cultural offer for children who need space and experience multicultural and multilingual, offering performances that represent moments of fun and safe emotional impact, stimulating the child’s linguistic creativity and flexibility that today, more and more, it needs to fit in and integrate in today’s multi-ethnic society.

The shows most delicious we’ve ever seen, intelligent, fun, exciting
