We’re a week or two back into the school year, some extra-curricular activities have now started, so you might be a bit overwhelmed, but it might be nice to start thinking of special activities, such as concerts and theatre productions, that you could do with your kids this season.
In English, the Christmas Pantomime is always a big hit, GAOS this year doing Goldilocks & the Three Bears (auditions next weekend for children & teen parts). GEDS has three productions this season Loot, the Little Foxes, and Baby with the Bathwater. For families there is also Simply Theatre in Versoix.
For Swiss Productions, Live Music Production has over 30 productions this year, including 20’000 Lieues sous les Mers, Disney sur Glace, Oui-Oui et le Grand Carnaval, and many more (even Roch Voisine for Canadians out there). As for Opus One, Cirque Éloize – iD and Cirque de Soleil are both on stage in December, Toutankhamon is at Palexpo at the end of September, Mummenschanz 4 Families is on stage next year in March. For small theatre for families, in Morges try the theatre Trois Petits Tours. In the Pays de Gex you can also try the Theatre du Bordeau in Saint-Genis-Pouilly.
As usual a variety of shows and concerts! Take a look at the organisers’ websites to see if there is anything for you, either for “date-night” or for the family!
