The Red Balloon

Back by popular demand, National Children’s Theatre’s The Red Balloon tells the story of a grumpy old man celebrating his birthday alone when a magical balloon appears at his window. Initially set in his solitary ways, everything changes for him as he is compelled to share his home with this lively balloon, which playfully coaxes him out of his grumpiness. Starring the award-winning Craig Morris, the play was a Gold Ovation Award Winner at this year’s National Arts Festival.
