Fitting of its name, which means “nonsense”, the lack of structure of this improvised show makes it an absolute riot. To start, kids assist with costume selection and choose a location for the fully improvised story. As the plot thickens, artists make props, build scenery and modify costumes. Musicians let rip an improvised score and actors sing songs created on the spot. Kids are encouraged to throw out twists and turns in the plot, and even become characters themselves.
