Balloonacy

The kiddos and I went to see Balloonacy at Dallas Children's Theater


"Our youngest audiences will enjoy this award-winning story of a lonely old man (played by DCT’s own Karl Schaeffer) and his friendship with a balloon. The old man is set in his solitary ways until a red balloon blows through his window and insists on becoming his friend. Sweet, inventive and packed with physical comedy, this play shows how, with a little imagination and acceptance, companionship is everywhere."








This performance was unique in that there was no spoken words. This one man production used body language and sounds of emotion to convey the storyline. The audience was instructed to use body language and verbal emotions to interact with the actor. The performance reminded me a lot of the movie, UP, and the little old man in that movie. Balance was truly a thumbs up for our crew.
