Free Chanuka performances for children

The Ministry of Culture and Sport is sponsoring Chanuka happenings throughout the country under the banner “נס חנוכה” (Nes Chanuka / Chanuka miracle).

With Sigd behind us and the smell of sufganiyot in the air, we can start looking forward to Chanuka only three weeks away.  In order to make more cultural options available to all, a new initiative is being undertaken to make 100 plays in more than 100 locations free for children.

Plays
The plays included will Pippi Longstocking, Pinocchio, Aladdin, and more.

בין ההצגות והקלאסיקות שיוצעו לילדים ניתן למצוא את הכבש ה-16 של מדיטק, אלאדין של תיאטרון אורנה פורת, הכריש והדג של התיאטרון הארצי לנוער, בילבי של חני הפקות, הרפתקאותיו של פינוקיו של תיאטרון הקיבוץ, המפוזר מכפר אז”ר של תיאטרון ארצי לנוער, “זרעים של מסטיק” של תיאטרון בית לסין ועוד.

Cost
The plays will be free to children (in nearly all cases), and accompanying adults will be charged a “symbolic” fee of 10 to 20 NIS.
