Petitruskus is a nursery show that combines magic, puppetry and clowning. The play revolves around a clown who finds a small suitcase in the middle of the scene.
Curiosity pushes him to open it, but at the same time, he is scared. The kids encourage him, and when he finally opens it, what a surprise! It’s a magician’s suitcase full of amazing things.
A cute raccoon pokes its head and approaches the children, and kids caress and tickle him. The music starts: by magic, eggs, colored handkerchiefs and wands appear and disappear.
Slowly, the clown gets wrapped up in magic, puppets and music, and he finally discovers how important it is to make others happy.
In addition to entertaining, Petitruskus brings two valuable educational benefits: it stimulates children’s imagination and facilitates their first contact with performing arts.
