Octoburst! Theatre - Tailor Made
It is an Octoburst Theatre.event! Time to kick back, relax and get lost in the fantasy world of a tailor.
On a bright morning a tailor gets an unusual note with a mission for him; he has to finish sewing a coat by midnight. It said that the size wouldn’t matter but the coat must be a perfect fit. The tailor does manage to finish his task right on the strike of 12 at midnight. But he suddenly can’t believe what’s happening around when his sewing machine starts running off and his scissors start wearing a skirt.
Indulge in the tailor’s adventurous night as he tries to figure out the magic of textiles. With minimal dialogue, lovely music, magical puppetry and of course a lot of color, it would be the perfect way for you to spend the weekend. Learn more about the event here.
