Early-October Kids: Theatre for teens

Norwegian TV series ‘SKAM’ gets stage version

Inspired by Lene Kaaberbøl’s ghoulish fantasy books, Vildheks follows the adventures of a girl who discovers she is a witch (sounds familiar somehow).

Suitable for children aged 9-18, this is quite a big production by a respectable theatre. See website for details.

Meanwhile, the hugely popular Norwegian TV/social media series SKAM is hitting the stage. Presumably the audience are obliged to bring a smartphone.

Suitable for children aged 15-18, something tells us the average age of the audience will be 13. Hit the website to find out more.
