TOI TOI, the Manoel’s Learning and Participation Programme, is presenting a fun music show that also offers an easy-to-follow introduction to classical string instruments for children aged five to eight.

Once Upon a String will provide young children and their families with the opportunity to witness their favourite songs live in an entertaining and magical performance.

The show features a vast array of well-known music performed by TOI TOI animateur and singer Michaela Agius, accompanied by the TOI TOI string quartet, whom strings expert Maria Conrad will musically direct.

Audiences will be encouraged to sing along as the performers perform music from opera (Hansel & Gretel), movies (The Never Ending Story, Pinocchio, The Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Andersen, Three Little Pigs and James Bond), TV shows (Stranger Things and the Eurovision Song Contest), video games (Super Mario), plus some Taylor Swift as well.

The show is written and directed by Kate Fenech Field, the TOI TOI Learning and Participation Programme manager. TOI TOI is a community-based project at the heart of the Manoel that aims to bring live music, dance and theatre events to audiences of all ages, from babies and toddlers to adults and senior citizens, and everyone in between.

Once Upon a String is being staged at the Studio Theatre on April 13 and 14, with performances at 4pm and 5.30pm on both days. Tickets can be purchased here or from the theatre’s box office. For more information call (+356) 21246389 or visit teatrumanoel.mt.
