Koira­kampaamo Villa Koiranen

Dog hairdresser Gilbert Geeli is a favorite of all dogs. The reason is a secret elixir that no other dog groomer has. However, the fiercely competitive hairdresser Käkkäräinen comes up with a cunning plan to snatch up the elixir. Fortunately, Mr. Geeli gets a clever little orphan dog to help him. In this captivating show, the actors and funny puppet characters guarantee sweet and hilarious moments for the whole family.

The Hevosenkenkä Theatre was founded in 1975. The Theatre uses puppets and musical theatre’s various modes of expression in a diverse manner. Throughout its entire existence, its aim has been artistic development and the all-round service of the audience. Indeed, the theatre has developed into a cultural centre, and is much loved by its audience. Its theatre building located in Juhannusmäki, Espoo – an idyllic school built in 1899 – has been renovated and extended into an ideal milieu for child audiences.
