Vinski’s pranks brought joy


At the end of June, the children of Estonian substitute homes and safe houses were invited by the non-profit association SEB Heategevusfond to watch the summer theatre’s family-friendly play “Vinski Over the Town” in the courtyard of the Song Festival Museum. The children met the theatre director and actors, enjoyed a summer day while walking around in Tartu, taking photos, and looking at the Upside Down House.

The play was fast-paced and funny. It was thrilling for the older children and younger ones, too. While the smaller children mainly liked the songs, the older children engaged with the action and after the play also discussed the play’s educational message. Many of the children saw themselves in Vinski.

Inexperienced theatre visitors gained an indelible memory due to the chance to take pictures with the actors and ask for their autographs after the play. The families also seized the opportunity to visit the Upside Down House. Even those children who had been there before were happy to go again. All of the children enjoyed being upside down: the smallest ones were running around happily.

After seeing the play, the children discussed the actors and the theme of the play for a long time. Those who had not read the book before were pleasantly surprised to receive the book Vinski Over the Town as a gift. In the evening, they read this as their bedtime story – now one more theatre experience richer.
