It’s an exciting time for Orlęta. This Sunday, 8 October, we premier our very special production of Czerwony Kapturek- Little Red Riding Hood at the Little Theatre in Lower Hutt, before taking the whole cast to Sydney, Australia in April next year to perform it at a Polish children’s festival. With 22 children in the cast, it’s quite a mission, but it’s worth it. It gives our children tremendous confidence and a strong sense of Polish identity. They are keenly aware that they have the support, and we teach them that dreams can be realised when we work hard and support each other. Once we get back from Sydney, we have to keep going: next December 2018, some of our children will also go to Brisbane, Australia to show the Aussies how it’s done in the triannual PolArt festival, the biggest of its kind outside Poland.
