For the 18th year, Axis Company presents this holiday show for children, an interactive production based on the classic fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. More…
Set just before the holidays on a snowy winter day, 'Seven in One Blow' tells the story of a child who kills seven flies with a single swat and makes a belt to commemorate the deed. As he travels about, most people think his belt refers to seven people—so they assign him all kinds of difficult tasks. Along the way, interesting lessons are learned by all. In this interactive production, children in the audience are encouraged to help the kid on his journey with singing and organized shout-outs. Appropriate for ages 4 and up.
