Musical Theater Club Members Visit Benaki Toy Museum

As the Musical Theater Club prepares to put on a performance of “The Nutcracker” at this year’s Christmas Bazaar on December 7, 2019, and again on December 19 and 20, 2019 in the Latseio Theater, an optional visit to the Benaki Toy Museum was organized for members of the troupe.  The aim of the visit, which took place on Friday, November 15, 2019, was to introduce toys of yore to the children, an experience that provided inspiration and ideas for production.

 

The Benaki Toy Museum exhibits toys, books, publications, clothing and other items associated with childhood from Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas.  The core of its permanent collection is the collection of Maria Argyriadi, considered among the top ten in Europe.

 

The Director of Psychico College Elementary School, Mr. D. Siamopoulos, together with the faculty advisors of the Musical Theater Club and the Stage Construction Club, Mr. Christos Galitis, Ms. Katerina Kostakou and Ms. Vasiliki Spyrou, accompanied the children on this visit.
