Just opening this weekend, Emil of Lonneberga (English-language premiere) at the Bay Area Children's Theatre. By the time this posts, you'll just miss the opening of the show (sorry!). But it's running through December 22, so not to worry. It's the story of an angelic-looking 5 year old farm boy who can't stay out of trouble. It's set in Sweden a century ago by Astrid Lindgren (the name is familiar, yes? Pippi Longstocking). See a clip here. It's done with puppeters who appear on stage, and there are live musicians as well performing music from the Smaland region (familiar? Ikea).
WHERE: Freight & Salvage, 2020 Addison Street, Berkeley.
WHEN: weekends through 12/22
TICKETS: $20/adult, $15/kid
