Seven in One Blow, or the Brave Little Kid at Axis Theatre

Seven in One Blow, or the Brave Little Kid

Adapted from the classic fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm, this festive interactive winter play with music features a blend of advanced technology and live performance. Children in the audience will be encouraged to participate in many of the Kid's challenges with singing and organized "shout outs." In Seven In One Blow, or The Brave Little Kid, a child living in the city kills seven flies with a single swat and makes a belt emblazoned with "SEVEN IN ONE BLOW" to commemorate the event. As he is traveling about, most people think his belt refers to seven people and assign the Kid all kinds of difficult tasks based on this faulty presumption. Along the way a few interesting things are learned: an Ogre finds that you don't always have to show how strong you are... sometimes it's okay just to be quiet about it; a girl realizes that when you tease people you are hurting someone who may be just like you; and a scary monster understands that because she is loved, she may not be so scary after all. In the end, the Kid ultimately discovers that a parents' love and care has no bounds.
