The National Youth Theater (NYT) at the Holon Mediteque has planned its 2008-09 season around international and local classics.
These include new productions of Erich Kastner's immortal story of a little boy who sets out to catch the thief that stole his money, better known as Emil and the Detectives; King Matya the First by Janusz Korzcak, the great educator who enshrined in this story of a little orphan king his belief in the rights and responsibilities of every child; Goren Agmon's version of L.M. Alcott's Little Women; an adaptation by Oren Yaakobi of Michal Snonit's beloved The Soul Bird, in which a little boy looks for his soul, if it exists; a revival of Itzik Weingarten's very touching Dancing with Daddy told by his little boy; an adaptation by Kobi Doron of Esther Streit-Wortzel's Letters to Sophia, a narrative on her life from her cousin; and this season's keynote production, Moonless Night, a dance theater piece by the gifted Moriah (Zusseleh) Zarhiya based on a story by Etgar Keret and Shira Geffen.
NYT plays are meant for elementary to high-school audiences.
