Little Blue and Little Yellow are the best of friends. Together, they go to school and play. One day, they embrace and become – green. They return home different, and are not recognized by their families. Little Blue and Little Yellow cry and cry—all the way to recognition. Through a dynamic interplay of colors, little and big theatregoers alike come face to face with many important questions about themselves and others. 


Leo Lionni gained extensive recognition with his picture book Little Blue and Little Yellow, published in 1959. He was the first illustrator to use collage as a fundamental technique. To celebrate the Slovenian premiere, Miš Publishing issued the picture book in Slovene as well.

Theater info

The Puppet Theatre Maribor was founded on 8th December 1973.


In the autumn of 2010, the Puppet Theatre Maribor moved into the newly renovated building of the Minorite monastery on Lent. This offered bigger rooms and state-of-the-art theatre equipment, allowing the theatre with its expanded artistic ensemble and top-notch professional team to reinvent itself and expand its program with additional support from the Municipality of Maribor.


One season brings six premieres, all linked up to form a conceptual unity. Age has been carefully factored in, as the plays do not address only children – the theatre's most numerous guests – but young people and adults as well. The repertoire constantly examines and explores the art of puppetry and fuses classical puppet technology with modern approaches.  Apart from regular productions, the theatre also offers a wide variety of additional art education activities and carries out innovative projects.


Cooperation with various institutions, independent organizations and individuals increases the quality of the proprietary program the theatre offers, brings the contents on offer to a wider audience, and further popularizes the art of puppetry. The theatre heavily invests in education and active development, thereby raising the standards in this field of activity.
