Cowboys and Aliens activities for half-term
The Wild, Wild West and Space come together during February’s half-term in a series of activities put on by the children’s charity, ST-ART, in Barton and Scunthorpe
Cowboys and Aliens is the theme for the five days of activities starting on Monday, February 13, which include the Wild, Wild West Play in a Week and an alien invasion.
ST-ART project worker Janine Knight said young people had the chance to create their very own on-stage Wild West Adventure as well as hone their budding acting skills under the guidance of the Duck Egg Theatre Company.
“All the young people have to do is bring along a packed lunch and their very best cowboy accent,” she said.
The youngsters will be working hard at The Ropewalk every day between 10am and 3pm until Friday, February 17 with a performance the same evening at 7pm.
The cost of the Play in a Week is just £20 and is suitable for cowboys and girls aged between seven and 16 years.
Marc Renshaw combines the wild west and alien themes with a game of skill and speed, Loopy Lasso Round ‘em Up, with a race to save aliens from the lasso pound.
Also during the week there will be the chance to make gravity defying space mobiles, clay spaceships and model aliens as well as plan an alien invasion.
Venues being used throughout the week include The Ropewalk and the Viking Resource centre in Barton and the Westcliff Youth Centre on Dryden Road in Scunthorpe.
All activities, apart from the play, cost £1 each and under eights must be accompanied by an adult except on The Wild, Wild West Play in a Week. More details can be found on www.st-art.co.uk
