"One night Mick had a wonderful dream. She shared it with me, and I want to share it with all of you."

These words launch the journey that Mick – together with Tino the dwarf and father's magic spell – takes to the witch-fairy’s candy garden.

The witch wishes for a friend but doesn’t know where to find one. This journey is about dealing with our fears and even befriending them.

It is presented with delicacy and humor, offering a solution to the problem. Children are actively involved through song, simple music and the magic spell.

From the reviews

I want to thank you sincerely from the heart.  ‘The Marzipan Fairy’ exceeded all expectations, enchanting children and adults alike! We got a brief respite from our daily troubles and had a dose of pure pleasure instead.
Tair Soussana, Kibbutz Miflasim

A highly imaginative play … confronting young children’s fears of the unknown. The stage is full of surprises, and Natalia Rosenthal’s design is delightful. The children were enthralled by the story. Recommended for toddlers.

The Marzipan Fairy successfully deals with young children's fears of the unknown by describing a young girl's journey into the witch's candy garden, together with a dwarf and a magic spell. ... It’s a truly sensitive, meticulous show, beautifully designed and full of imagination.
Yoram Rotem, Iton Horim VeYeladim


The ever-changing scenery, humor, catchy tunes and gradual build-up of the character’s fear all worked together to create a sensitive, highly imaginative show recommended for children aged 3-6.
