Larry T Hill :-

With a striking solo performance, Larry T Hill crafts cheeky musical tales using just voice and a looping pedal. He records layer upon layer of his voice live on stage, creating elaborate yet fun musical pieces which you might expect to hear from a small band. Performances can be energetic and animated, soulful and outrageous, witty, pretty or sometimes just silly. The sharp beats, deep bass lines and sweet harmonies will have you hooked. Singing the tunes all the way home.

Larry has gained a large following of little people and for this he is grateful. Young people around the island have enjoyed his quirky humour, energetic performances and insightful playshops.

He is thrilled when he gets to perform in schools. Most recently, students in Colombo spent a whole week with him developing the Sights, Sounds and Stories musical comedy performance at Camp Kreativ.

He is looking forward to returning to The Sooriya village, this time for his first solo live performance. Step on up to the Larry T Hill show !

Labu Gediye Thowila:-

Come and behold the tale of the magical gourd that housed a whole thowile! Brought to life by low country dancers with live music and fire dancing, this is a tale for the whole family. Join our children day celebrations with everyone young and young at heart.

Ideal for families with children aged 4-12 years. Performance will be in Sinhala and English and will approximately run for 60min.

Power of Play believes in the power of laughter and aims to delight audiences, reaching out through techniques of live performance – proven successful all throughout the world over centuries as an ageless mode of communication. Power of Play employs PUPPETS - a magic tool that attracts diverse audiences from any location. Puppets are used around the world to convey messages effectively, within a short time to large audiences. Puppets have an incredible power to connect with people – people react more positively to puppets than they react to other people. Therefore, conveying a message through a puppet is a communication form that is unbeatable by any other. Power of Play customizes a variety of performances and workshops designed to fit any purpose/audience.

Somalatha Subasinghe Play House :-

Lanka Children’s and Youth Theatre Foundation (LCYTF) or popularly known as the “Play House-Kotte” is a non-profit making organization for educating the children and youth through the medium of theatre with the vision to nurture a benevolent society. It was established in 1981 with the aim of promoting Children’s and Youth Theatre in Sri Lanka under the auspices of Mrs. Somalatha Subasinghe, veteran children’s theatre director and playwright. Since then the organization has been able to produce a repertoire of Children’s and Youth theatre and award winning mainstream theatre productions. The organisation has emerged as one of the leading training centers for performing artistes particularly in children’s and youth theatre.
