Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf
Date: 11th February 2018
Details:  Presented by Unity Theatre and Action Transport Theatre

A small figure sets off, with red cloak and hood
to grandmas they go, the other side of the woods

Do not stop to smell the flowers, or sing to the birds
or climb a tall tree, remember these words…

Do not leave the path, for you’d make a tasty treat!
For the hungriest wolf of all, who is ready to eat!

Join us for a bold and highly theatrical re-telling of the well-known classic tale packed with music, dance and song.

The production explores the thrill of adventure and unknown versus the safety and familiarity of the path and how irresistible straying can be, as well as the tension between mankind and nature. Are the wolves really the villains in a world where the woodcutter is destroying the forest? And is Grandma the trophy hunter really sick?

Twinkle Twinkle (12:30pm Performance)
Date: 29th April 2018
Details:  There are melodies that live in all of us. No one knows that more than Marty the puppy, whose songs and playtime with his Dad are the best part of his day.

But sometimes, you have to learn how to find the music inside yourself. Twinkle Twinkle is a beautiful adventure in music and light that features high quality puppetry, magical interaction and a gorgeous original score with live music-making for all.

This original tale of love, loss and light has been especially made for audiences aged 1 – 3 and its rich, near-wordless storytelling entrances toddlers and parents alike.

Developed in association with Tonic Theatre award-winner, Anna Newell, this third production for young audiences by Touched Theatre continues the company’s commitment to making emotionally literate original theatre for children.

Twinkle Twinkle takes the classic nursery rhyme and uses its ideas of melody and distance to explore resilience for the very young and the ways we can learn to carry the light of those we love inside ourselves, even when we are apart.

Doors for this event open at 12pm and the performance starts at 12:30pm.

£7/£5

Keepy Uppy (2:30pm Performance)
Date: 27th May 2018
Details:  A silent pitch, a still football.

Footie strips, shin pads, shiny boots.

A kick of the ball, it flies, it soars… it scores …….. GOAL!

Our journey begins with grass stained knees, Astro Turf and champions. Keepy Uppy tells an extraordinary tale of love, devotion and family, set in the world of all things football and undeniable team spirit.

Join tutti frutti as they celebrate the joy of the beautiful game and ignite children’s imagination with visual and physical storytelling.

Keepy Uppy is a play for the 2018 world cup year, for football fans, children and families. With few words and bold physicality, fab footie moves, flicks, sidesteps and original live music.
