Dog hairdresser Gilbert Geeli is a favorite of all dogs. The reason is a secret elixir that other dog groomers do not have. In the captivating show, the actors and funny puppet characters guarantee sweet and hilarious moments for the whole family.
Once upon a time… Or maybe right now, there lives a girl. Natalia Sakowicz’s performance delves into the world of the modern girl through well-known fairy tale princesses.

The evergreen songs make Grandma reminisce about her life from childhood to this moment. Memories pass through the heart as shadow images, winged by music. The show is speechless, but songs and music take you to the important moments of life with the help of pictures.
