Half-term entertainment in Barton upon Humber with ST-ART
Barton upon Humber children’s art charity ST-ART is putting on half-term entertainment for young people aged four years and over with Indigo Moon Theatre’s production of Alice and the White Rabbit.
The performance, on Saturday, October 27 at Ropery Hall, tells the rale of Alice’s magical adventure as she chases the white rabbit back in time in a journey into Wonderland meeting on her journey the Cheshire cat, a two legged dragon and the March Hare at the mediaeval Mad Hatter’s tea party.
“This production has been influenced by the gothic architecture which can be found in St Mary’s Church, Beverley,” said Janine Knight of ST-ART. “In the north choir aisle there is a carving of a rabbit dressed as a pilgrim that is said to have inspired Lewis Carroll’s White Rabbit.
“To tie in with the theatre in the afternoon there will be a puppet workshop in the morning,” Janine went on. “During this workshop those taking part will learn about light and shadows and make their own very simple puppets out of thin card and use coloured cellophane or lighting gel to create colour. “
The 50 minute long performance starts at 2pm and costs £4 for adults and £3 for under 16s while the puppet workshop, which is suitable for those aged between five and 13 years, runs from 10am to 12.30pm and costs £2 per child.
