The Boy Who Became a Hedgehog  3+

Based on Slovene Folk Tale / 45 min

The story of The Boy Who Became A Hedgehog would be nothing more than an ordinary story about an ordinary boy living an ordinary boyish life, if one fine day that boy had not changed into a hedgehog. Although many people might not believe it, the life of a hedgehog is anything but simple and lovely. It is difficult enough getting out of bed, not to mention crossing a street or hugging a friend. The hedgehog’s menu would not thrill any children either: only apples and pears, and on Sundays perhaps the odd worm as dessert. But this is a performance about an otherwise ordinary boy-hedgehog, who one foggy morning decides that he will never despair and that, instead of apples, he will rather look for his lucky star.
