About the show:
There is a mystery hidden in the play. The audience gets to know two very different worlds. Do they have anything in common? We’re going to discover that step by step.
The first part of the play takes place in Zyliria, a land where the time is measured in a specific way. The rhythm of Zylirians’ life is determined by four cyclical events: Appearance, Presence, Disappearance, and Emptiness. The Day of Appearance is a big festivity. The Big Hand arrives from heaven to bring a precious Thing (a brand new one each time) and leave it on the main square of the town for a few days. That’s what is referred to as Presence. Then the Big Hand reappears to take the Thing back. At that moment, the Time of Emptiness begins. In Zyliria we’ll get to know Ole, his parents and friends, and the Mayor. Ole, like every other kid, would like Presence to last longer than Emptiness. Will he manage to make this dream come true?
The second part of the play tells the story of a famous illusionist, Bombalini, considered by many as the best magician of all time. He dreamed of magic and spells since he was a child, but he didn’t think that his career would take an unexpected turn and that his magical tricks could go rouge. What do you reckon happened to our magical friend?
‘Oh, My Chucolate!’ is a show for young detectives, who can solve the chucolate mystery better than adults. It’s a gripping and light-hearted show, full of surprises, unexpected plot twists, fast-flowing action, songs, and humour.
