Adam and his Captain Eve fly in their spaceship to look at the blue planet, which they can see through their telescope. On their way, they visit a red planet where monsters live. After their escape, Eve and Adam land on a green planet where they meet a giant rabbit, but Adam is rude to the rabbit and the two have to leave again. After Adam and Eve have landed on the blue planet, Adam sends the spaceship away – now they have to stay on the blue planet forever. What will they find there?


Even children that understand only very little English can easily follow this funny adventure play. During the performance, the children can learn and repeat words for e.g. colours and in a playful way.

Princess Caramella has lost her crown. The faithful knight Sir Gabalot offers to help her. Together they climb a mountain, they cross a river, they feed a dragon... and then they meet Taradiddle, the King of Thieves, and the princess must use her wits to trick him into giving back the stolen crown.


As well as providing an entertaining adventure, the play helps pupils to practice vocabulary that they meet in their first two years of learning English – colours, body parts, clothing, numbers up to ten, animals, directions, and weather.
