Discovery in the Magnificent Villa Royale Gardens 

The show

37 years and still as lively as ever, TOF Theatre continues to enchant audiences of all ages with its puppet shows, infused with its unmistakable TOF Touch. Whether for theaters, public spaces, young audiences, families, or the more discerning viewer, their creations travel the world, blending humor, modesty, irreverence, and tenderness.

Gaby, Antoine, and Nadine are three retirees on holiday, determined to rediscover their carefree spirit. Their goal is clear: to forge that often elusive inter-generational bond. This warm and joyous encounter culminates on the dance floor with a frenzied round of dancing. It’s hilarious and full of charm!



In the press

A chaotic, joyful, and nostalgic show, made even more touching by Alain Moreau’s puppets, which as always emit a real scent of humanity.

  • Laurence Bertels, La Libre


[…] a show that does good: enjoyable, participatory, inclusive, exhilarating, it is a vector of pleasure, conviviality, and reflection at the same time.

  • Mathieu Dochtermann, Alternatives Théâtrales
