During the days 12 and 13, 26 and 27 October; 9, 10, 23 and 24 of November, and 7 and 8 of December, Titirimundi, together with the City Council of Segovia and the collaboration of Caja Rural, will offer, through its autumn campaign, five shows of renowned theater companies of puppets aimed at children in the Julio Michel Hall of La Cárcel_Segovia Creation Center.
Tickets, at the price of 7 € will be on sale from 3 day at www.turismosegovia.com and at the 10 Visitors Center: 00 to 17: 00 from Monday to Saturday and from 10: 00 to 16: 00 Sundays. Also at the La Cárcel ticket offices, one hour before each performance.
As a novelty, Titirimundi will offer a bonus of € 30 for the entire campaign (5 shows) thanks to a Festival initiative to loyalty to the public that attends all the performances.
The weekend of the 12 and 13 of October will begin in the Julio Michel Hall of La Cárcel_Segovia Creation Center "Let's go to the theater", the children's theater campaign that from 2011, and as an extension of Titirimundi for several autumn weekends until almost the celebration of the Festival, has been created together with the City Council and the collaboration of Caja Rural. Five shows that until December will offer small traces of Titirimundi to walk on them and not forget what is important: «That the puppet is a travel companion and is rooted in the deepest part of the human being as a projection of it», says the director of the Festival , Marián Palma. "The puppets live in us and we in them are a bridge between the inner world and what we carry inside and the world of objective reality that we must interpret and re-create," he adds.
Therefore, "Let's go to the theater" is shaped as a campaign that bets on children as men and women of the future under the motto of looking at childhood, because "looking at it is looking at the growing humanity, which reflects us, that ask and trust us ».
For starters, the 12 and 13 of October the company El Retablo, one of the companies that has achieved the most successes in Titirimundi after 20 years, if we talk about the smallest spectators, will bring to Segovia its presumed Ratita.

There are rumors that something strange is happening. A girl enters the farm for secret reasons and a boy accompanies her for an adventure.
