The Story of Many Stories at the Millennium Stage

Welcome to the 9th edition of the Kids Euro Festival! It’s like taking a trip to Europe - but you don’t need a passport!

Kids Euro Festival is a two-week long festival of European arts and culture presenting free activities to D.C. metro area children and their families. There are performances, concerts, workshops, movies, storytelling, and more... and it’s all brought to you by the 28 European Union Member States!

As part of the events organized for the Kids Euro Festival, Italy invites you the theatrical performance Stories of Many Stories by Kairos Italy Theater where the fables of Gianni Rodari are brought to life!

Colombina, Balanzone and Arlecchino will bring your children through The Town of Fears, The Words Market, and play The Little Box Game. In between scenes, each character will tell one of the short stories written by Gianni Rodari. Rodari was the recipient of the Hans Christian Anderson Medal and is considered by many to be Italy’s most important twentieth-century children’s author. The show will end with a parade where everyone will get to sing and dance!
