Munich: Tips for children and families in April and May – Munich

Marc-Uwe Kling, best known as the author of the “Kangaroo Chronicles”, created a delightfully idiosyncratic children’s book character five years ago: a unicorn who is initially born in the Herzwald as a “schnickeldisch-nuckelige” little animal. But even though everyone there is “purple-loving” to him and he is constantly fed with sugared lucky clover, the cute creature behaves anything but unicorn-like. It refuses all behavioral suggestions with a moaning no and breaks out of its cotton candy world as a NO horn. It hits the WATBEAR, a raccoon who doesn’t want to listen, the NaHUND, who really doesn’t give a damn about anything, and then the King’s DOOK, a princess who always talks back. The four of them form a wonderfully stubborn team that will take place from April 24th to 26th the stage of the German Theater climbs – the musical theater piece is played The Nohorn with rap and rhymes from the Junges Theater Bonn.

As the strongest girl in the world, Pippi Longstocking can easily lift her own horse, Little Uncle.

Long a classic of children’s literature, this non-conformist heroine has not lost her charm to this day. Astrid Lindgren’s heroine returns on May 1st Pippi Longstocking with a revival premiere on the stage of the Munich Theater for Children back: She makes her world the way she likes it – and sets up with her monkey Mr. Nilsson and her horse Little Uncle in Villa Kunterbunt according to her own rules. Luckily, she’s also the strongest girl in the world, so she can handle crooks and cops with ease. She also grew up on a ship with her pirate father, where she learned a lot of things, except manners. Her flying visits to school and at a coffee party are therefore still legendary appearances (May 1st, 10th and 11th).

As soon as some normality has returned to Villa Kunterbunt, Pippi sets off for new shores, or more precisely to Taka-Tuka-Land, when she receives a message in a bottle with a cry for help from her father: pirates have hijacked the Hoppetosse and taken him prisoner . It’s clear that his daughter, accompanied by her friends Tommy and Annika, sets out to free him. Pippi in Taka Tuka Land (based on motifs from the film of the same name), also an adaptation by the Junges Theater Bonn with music by Marc Schubring, will appear on May 1st at 1:45 p.m. and 4:15 p.m Taufkirchen Cultural Center.

Günter Grass’ short hero Oskar Matzerath already drummed his way through novel and film “The Tin Drum” as an anarchic character. With Anatol, the drum troll On April 21st, an equally very idiosyncratic fellow will take the stage of the Gasteig HP8 to take the young audience on a sonorous journey through the world of percussion instruments at the Mini-Musik concert (2 p.m. and 4 p.m.).

Too much noise that disrupts the regular processes? Actually, there can’t be enough of them, just think of the social experiment with devastating consequences that Morton Rhue describes in his classic youth book “The Wave”: The production by the 8th grade of the Rudolf Steiner School in Schwabing, directed by Simeon Wutte, shows from May 2nd to 5th The wave in the Theater Leo17. And it impressively shows what happens when everyone tacitly submits to authoritarian structures – and becomes unconditional yes-men.
