The Gift Train
Grandma Nechamka and Grandpa Albert loves to give presents. For each grandchild they have a colorfully wrapped box containing a special present!
They are waiting for at the train station to visit their grandchildren who live all over the country. But when will arrive the train?
Grandpa, with the help of the audience, persuades Grandma to open and show the presents. Each time Grandma opens a box, Grandpa sings and plays a song, and a piece of magic unfolds on the stage.

From the reviews
Each gift comes with a short puppet show and song; thus does a world of poetic imagination emerge from the packages. This play is full of joie de vivre, drawn from the warm personalities of both of its creators.Shai Bar-Yaakov, Yediot Aharonot
The design is lovely, and the performance for the children is magical. It makes them excited to find out what each package holds. What a surprise!Maya Goren, Culture Coordinator, Alon Hagalil
