The Märlisunntig 2020 will be different

Due to the ongoing Corona pandemic, the Zug Märlisunntig association has come up with new and creative ideas for the 2020 programme.

In recent months, the organisers  of the Zug Märlisunntig (Fairy Tale Sunday) association have given a lot of thought to the possible implementation of this year's edition of the Zug Märlisunntig, as they write in a statement.  Working together, they have found a solution that takes account of safety regulations, on the one hand, but it is also varied and appealing on the other. A range of offers In a different setting, in and around the Theater Casino Zug, will attract the young and old, and prepare them for the Christmas season.

The federal regulations only allow a limited number of visitors in the theatre and the ballroom of the Theater Casino Zug. Advance ticket sales will run via www.theatercasino.ch, although there is a possibility of program changes due to the current situation. Protective measures, such as obligatory wearing of a face mask from the age of 12, must be followed in the Theater Casino Zug. There will be no ticket refund in case of any cancellations of the performances.

The Zug Märlisunntig will take place again this year.

Livestream into living rooms
In order to allow as many people as possible to be present, something very special has been devised: the performances will be broadcast to the living rooms and fairy tale rooms of the public In the form of a live stream. The two stage productions "Drü Insle" (Three islands)  – a story about friendship – performed by the Triplette theatre formation from Lucerne, and "Ein Kriminalfall für Musik-Kater Caruso (A Criminal Case for Music-cat Caruso)" with the Kammer Soloists Zug will provide suspense and cheerfulness. Five Märli (fairy tale) videos will be on the website of the Zug Märlisunntig at 11 a.m. from 6th December.

"We very much hope that we will be able to carry out the Zug Märlisunntig in the usual way again in 2021, and look forward to performing in the streets and the many Märlistuben (story-telling lounges)," says Nicolett Theiler, President of the Zug Märlisunntig Association.

The association is also carrying out a competition. If you send in a photo to the Märlisunntig@Home-moment showing how this year's Märlisunntig took place at home within your own four walls, you can win one of three gingerbread kits with a bit of luck.
