THE GREATEST THING
Theatre Fairytale

The Greatest Thing is a magical theatre fairytale for all ages and all stages that tells its touching story through live songs and the art of mime.

About the show

The Greatest Thing is a visual concert with an exclusive soundtrack, starring singer-songwriter Miss Walker and mime artist Silent Rocco. For about half an hour, the scene turns into a gateway to another world. A quiet vagabond walks into a seemingly lifeless neon fairy. The content of her golden leather pouch becomes the key to their common story and unleashes a tender musical fairytale, rife with enchanting live songs, interactive moments and captivating choreographies.
