After more than three years of discussing possibility to do a coproduction with
The Lebanese Puppet theatre and with director Karim Dakroub we managed to
coproduce “I Have a Dream”. A Play for young people. And in this play we also
had a new actress from our young trainees to work professionally in the play.
The play was produced in Jordan and opened in Amman.
For the first time also this year our young trainees all act in the Christmas play
directed to children and tour with the play in the Bethlehem area. 6 young actors
work in the play on professional basis.
