WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Can the laughter of a child melt the cold heart of a selfish giant? Yes it can! This adaptation of Oscar Wilde's beautiful fairytale will warm the hearts of young and old alike.
Join us for a very special journey inside the mind of Oscar Wilde - follow him as he leads us into the tale of The Selfish Giant.

Then the kids and their families make a special art project and take it home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms
