Pandora’s Magical Box

Shadow Theatre and Puppetry for Families / Age 5+

Internationally acclaimed Indigo Moon Theatre brings this classic myth into the realm of child – friendly shadow theatre, table-top puppetry and live acting.

Pandora seems perfect, endowed with every good gift, however her vanity and capricious nature makes her think with her head and she opens the forbidden box, unleashing a world of shadows. Chaos, symbolic of the larger world, is let loose. But all is not lost when Pandora opens the box a second time, this time following her heart…!
