- Famous comic characters pack Expo Centre theatre
Visitors to Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival have been mesmerised by a spectacular show featuring the famous Smurfs, the unique blue stars of stage and screen.
The production sees the Smurfs trying to save Mother Nature from the evil clutches of the play’s villain and our heroes’ nemesis, Gargamel. The story unfolds through a series of songs, dances and plenty of crowd participation, which sees the evil Gargamel wander around the audience looking for his prey – to the amusement of some and the terror of others.
The 11-day SCRF is a fun-packed, entertainment-filled festival of discovery, creativity and excitement and an interactive platform that also brings together some of the world’s best children’s authors to read their popular works to their fans. SCRF also offers an ideal platform for publishers to showcase their new titles.
