Theatre at ITV Ice Makers: The mMusicians of Bremen

January, 2024

Good morning,

Last January 5th we shared with some of you and your children a very special event: a play set to music based on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, “The Bremen Musicians”. The experience turned out to be a real life lesson for all of us, and I want to share why we decided to do it.
The story of “The Bremen Musicians” is known for its captivating plot, but more importantly, for its powerful moral. At the heart of the story, we find four animals, a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster, who, despite being shunned by their owners due to their advanced age, decide to embark on an adventure together to become Bremen musicians. As they progress on their journey, these friends discover the importance of self-acceptance and collaboration.

The play we enjoyed together reminded us how valuable it is to feel at ease with oneself, regardless of age or circumstances, and how teamwork can overcome any obstacle. The characters on stage conveyed this message in an emotional and entertaining way, leaving a deep impression on all of us.

This event was not only an opportunity for the children to immerse themselves in the magic of theatre, but also a way to instil important values such as collaboration and cooperation in their education. The story of the Bremen musicians reminded us all that sometimes in life we need to join forces and work together to achieve our goals.

We are delighted to have shared this experience with you and your families, and hope that you enjoyed the play as much as the actors and those of us who organised it. We will continue to foster this atmosphere of collaboration and mutual appreciation at ITV Ice Makers, and we hope that this lesson from “The Bremen Players” will inspire us to continue working together towards a bright future.

Thank you for being part of ITV Ice Makers and for joining us on this special day. We hope to create more memorable moments and valuable lessons together in the future.
And thanks to Yulia Vashchenko and her theatre school for making this dream come true!

Until the next adventure!

Cristina.
