Theatre for toddlers in Doha soon

SEPTEMBER 14 will see the launch of a novel theatrical initiative for babies and toddlers in Qatar called ‘Baby Theater Peekaboo’, a brand new concept in performing arts not only in Qatar, but in the entire Arab region.
Explaining what a baby theatre is, Tatiana Ermakova, theatre manager, said, “Imagine a theatre. Now imagine a children’s theatre. Now imagine a baby theatre! Cannot see how babies and toddlers sit still for an hour? They don’t have to!
“In our Baby Theater Peekaboo kids are active show participants, thanks to an innovative interactive theatre concept which allows the youngest audience - babies 8+ months to 5 years old - watch and play during a show!”
The premiere of the first show, ‘Ocean Mysteries’, will take place at the Pearl, Porto Arabia Tower 20.
Speaking about the benefits of the show, Ermakova said, “When at the show, families have around an hour of quality time while creating positive memories. Following a story line, kids learn about characters, their emotions and empathise with them. This is a way to start developing emotional intelligence.”
The Baby Theater Peekaboo inherited many features from a professional theatre -- sophisticated props, engaging stories adapted to each age group, irresistible music, adorable characters (hand and glove puppets, shadow theatre) and more.
The first show, ‘Ocean Mysteries’, is planned to circulate around Doha until mid-October, when the second show ‘Enchanted Forest’ will be launched. Mid-November will mark the launch of a winter show.
A performance lasts 40-50 minutes and invites a maximum of 15 kids with accompanying adults. Every show offers a free photo shoot and every child gets a souvenir gift. Along with public shows, the theatre accommodates private parties enquiries.
The theatre also invites residential compounds, nurseries, pre-schools, event planners, hotels and others for cooperation.
