Tania has just arrived from Paris for a very special occasion, the World’s Tastiest Carrot Competition! In her leather trunk she carries her very own garden, through which a whole world is revealed… a world of Tania’s animal friends, each of them desperate for a taste of the prize carrot.

Narrated in English with the puppets speaking simple French sentences, the show is a fun and heart-warming bilingual piece of theatre, accessible to all non-French speakers.

After the show audience members – particularly the smallest ones! – are invited onto the stage to dance as well as taste real carrots, but only if they want to!

Based in Edinburgh, Le Petit Monde crafts immersive bilingual storytelling experiences that introduce young children and their adults to artistic director Tania Czajka’s native French language and culture. The company’s productions foster curiosity, expand the imagination, and tap into a child’s innate ability to learn and engage with the spoken word to jump-start their foreign language acquisition skills.

The perfect introduction to a foreign language for tiny ones. – The List
