The Somalatha Subasinghe Play House will present its annual theatre festival for children from December 7 to 9 at the Lionel Wendt Theatre, Colombo.


Ratmalee (Red Riding Hood) and Thoppi Velenda (The Hat Seller) written and directed by Somalatha Subasinghe will be staged on December 7 at 3.30 pm and 7 pm. “Walas Pawula” (The Three Bears and Goldilocks) written by Somalatha Subasinghe and directed by Chandana Aluthge will be staged on December 8 and 9 at 3.30 pm and 7 pm.


Based on international and fairy tales and local folk tale, these musical productions are produced with the intention of instilling in children, a sense of basic art forms and pride in our own culture. 


They also encourage them to understand the importance of family and its values. In addition, the lessons of love, humanity, responsibility, hard work and world awareness are refreshingly presented in these plays. In the adaptations, new characters and situations have been incorporated to facilitate an intellectual discourse with the Sri Lankan child while action and humour on stage are subtly mixed.
