About the project
The Agada Chadasha (New Fairytale) Theater troupe was founded in 1985 to create a new way of bringing the theater to children. The group treated young audiences as perceptive and critical, and provided them with themes, characters and sets as serious, well-developed and aesthetically-pleasing as in adult productions. The group was a resident company of the Israel Festival and often performed at the Jerusalem Center for the Performing Arts (the Jerusalem Theater), including a performance commissioned by the Jerusalem Foundation for the center’s gala opening in 1986. The group also ran theater workshops for children.
