Enjoy and perform children’s theatre at The Ropewalk this Easter

By admin |

Children’s theatre both to enjoy and take part in is on offer this Easter at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall during the school holidays.

The children’s art charity ST-ART are promoting a daring new puppetry adventure, Tim and Light,  by Tucked In Productions which will be performed at Ropery Hall on Thursday, April 12 at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

“Brighton based Tucked In will be bringing their most successful play to date, Tim and Light, to Ropery Hall.  It has gained five star reviews and has already been performed at such prestigious venues and festivals, such as Glastonbury Festival, the Lowry and Latitude Festival,” said ST-ART’s project co-ordinator, Janine Knight.

Tickets to see the performance cost £3 for children and £4 for adults.

For those young people aged between seven and 16 years who would rather create a brand new play rather than be in the audience, Duck Egg Theatre, in conjunction with ST-ART, are putting on “Alice in Wonderland Play in a Week” from Tuesday, April 10 to Friday, April 13.

“Following on from the success of Duck Egg’s recent production ‘Alice by Heart’, the company are venturing into Wonderland again for a play which is just right for the Easter holidays,” said Janine.

The project will run from 10am-3pm each day with an evening performance on the Friday at 7pm.  Places are just £25 for the project and all the participants need to do is bring enthusiasm, ideas and a packed lunch each day.

To book onto the Play in a Week either email haley@duckegg.org.uk  with your name, age and contact details or call 07723 371833.
