The Galli Mission

Cel­e­brat­ing Childhood
The Gal­li The­ater com­mu­ni­cates impor­tant social issues through mod­ern adap­ta­tions of fairy tales from around the world. The plays high­light their sym­bols and help to illu­mi­nate wis­dom that is high­ly rel­e­vant in today’s soci­ety. They awak­en a sense of live­li­ness in audi­ences and actors alike that can help reveal the gen­uine per­son and his inner vision and pow­er, thus cel­e­brat­ing child­hood. Gal­li achieves this mis­sion through its main­stage pro­duc­tions, edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams and its­Dr. Fairy­tale Program.

Plays and Productions

The Gal­li The­ater pro­duces per year 10 — 14 mod­ern and inno­v­a­tive adap­ta­tions of fairy tales from around the world that enter­tain and teach valu­able life lessons. Galli’s unique style is that all shows are very inter­ac­tive and with lots of improv ele­ments. Cur­rent­ly, plays are per­formed in Eng­lish, French, and German.
