A new production in Maltese for children (aged 5+) will bring the imaginative world of poet and writer Immanuel Mifsud to life through theatre and music.

Under the direction of Marta Vella, poems from Mifsud’s book Paramm Paramm: Ktieb għall-Bravi u l-Imqarbin are being adapted for the stage. The poetry is also being scored with original music by musical director Kris Spiteri.

Paramm Paramm is a collection of poems by Immanuel Mifsud. We have turned them on their head and infused them with music to create an exciting spectacle for all the family to enjoy,” Vella says.

Spiteri’s compositions, as well as Mifsud’s poetry, will be performed by three actor musicians: Philippa Naudi (from The New Victorians), Annalise Mifsud (actress and pianist, Min Imissu?) and Sean Borg (winner of the 45th edition of L-Għanja tal-Poplu). The trio will be acting, singing and playing various instruments live.

Paramm Paramm: Teatru u Mużika għall-Bravi u l-Imqarbin is being staged at Theatre Next Door in Magħtab from March 31 to April 2. Tickets can be booked from www.tnd.com.mt.

The Udjenza production is supported by Arts Council Malta, as well as APS Bank with the participation of the Aġenzija Nazzjonali tal-Litteriżmu and Klabb Kotba Maltin.
