Children's scene

The Neverending Story is the most popular novel for children and young adults by the famous German writer Michael Ende. It was written as a children's novel, but soon after its publication in 1979, it grew into a novel for all generations and achieved a sensational worldwide success.

Dear children, have you noticed that adults set a series of boring rules - "tidy up your room, go to bed on time, you can't have sweets for dinner..." What a drag! But do you know that there is a place where these rules don't apply? Now you wonder: Where is it?

WOW! / Age: 3-5

Some children are sometimes afraid of darkness, but darkness is also an ideal time and place to play - it is the world of bedtime stories, the world of dreams, scary and funny animals and monsters, the world of games played in the dark, the world of making up and imagination in which everything is possible.

THE SNOW QUEEN / Age: 6+

Once upon a time there was a magic mirror that turned everything beautiful into ugly, and everything good and happy into bad and sad. One day the magic mirror shattered into billions of tiny pieces.

CHILDREN'S ROOM / Age: 5+

Designed as a kind of “didactic tool”, made up of short musical theatre images, this performance is an ideal way to introduce the youngest audience to the world of opera. 

A cyclone carried Dorothy from Kansas to a distant land, surrounded by a huge desert to the north, a huge mountain to the south, a huge chasm to the east, a huge sea to the west. That land is called Oz. In Oz, Dorothy meets Scarecrow without a brain, Tin Woodman without a heart, and Lion without courage.

Inspired by some episodes from Jonathan Swift's famous novel "Gulliver's Travels", the authors refreshed this well-known story with a spirit of culture and art of the Far East, and used the story of a wandering sailor as a basis for dealing with the topics of peer violence,  understanding and respect for mutual differences.

CINDARELLA / Age: 5+

“Cindarella” by Aleksandar Aca Popović is one of the capital works of Serbian and Yugoslav literature for children. The decision to include this text in the repertoire of the Little Theatre “Duško Radović” has been made with the intention to dust off the forgotten classics of children's literature.

One night, Yellow Mum Cat leaves her kitten on the dock, in front of a large white ship that should sail from the port the next day. She wants her son to become a ship cat and see the world, instead of ending up as an ordinary butcher's cat. The next morning, the frightened cat is found by Violet, the captain's daughter, who names him Charlie.

THE TEMPEST / Age: 7+

The Tempest   has many layers:   romantic, metaphysical, autobiographical, philosophical, political, etc. Among all these possible  readings I find also a childlike view of the world (like in those unusual J. Cornell’s boxes with some nostalgic mini-worlds full of some childish fantasies).

“The Little School of Rock and Roll” was written some twenty years ago as a new rendition of “Rock and Roll for Children”, played in Boško Buha Theatre.

That’s right, my dear little children, it's wool. We get that wool from a soft and warm animal - sheep. Its fleece is so soft and warm like a story written by Ivo Andrić in 1953. That story is entitled “Aska and the Wolf”. This is a story about violence and how to stop it.

Dušan Radović wrote and published the text “Captain John Peoplefox” in 1953 as radio drama. In Little Theatre this play was staged for the first time in 1988 under the title “Good Morning, Captain Peoplefox”. The adaptation was done by playwright Dragoslav Simić and director Oliver Viktorović.

The show is an ode to marionette, its beauty, subtlety and expressive possibilities. Circus acts, acrobatics, dancing on the wire, assembling, disassembling, juggling, etc. are in the foreground. The story seems to be a decoration. It is a story about love and about some crazy artists, that is - all of us.

The famous Russian (Ural region) tale of damnation of those who search for treasure and wealth has been told in many ways.
