'The Selfish Giant' travels to Brattleboro
BRATTLEBORO — New York City's traveling children's theater production of "The Selfish Giant" comes to New England Youth Theater, 100 Flat St., at 2 p.m. this Saturday.
"The Selfish Giant" is a classic tale about a giant who builds a wall around his garden to keep out the town's children, but in doing so plunges his garden into an endless winter. The show's creators, Jose Ignacio Vivero (Ecuador) and Susannah Dalton, instill a sense of urgency in the story by placing the storytellers themselves at a border wall. Traveling, depression-era hucksters transform their wares to tell a much-needed story to the audience they find waiting to cross.
PinProductions is currently celebrating its first decade of creating and producing theater in English and Spanish. The Selfish Giant is the recipient of both the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture's Artist Grant and The Queens Council on the Arts New Works Grant.
Tickets are $8 for children and $12 for adults. To pre-order tickets go to https://www.pinproductionscompany.com/
