Children’s half-term theatre at Barton’s Ropery Hall
Tucked In Productions are returning to Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall during May’s half-term holidays with their latest children’s play, The Golden Cowpat.
Brought to the Maltkiln Road venue by the children’s arts charity, ST-ART, the production is a colourful tale about a naughty cow and her magical, golden cowpats.
“The play is told through catchy original folk music and breathtaking storytelling,” said ST-ART co-ordinator Janine Knight. “It will delight both young and old alike.”
She explained the play was set on Hector’s run down farm and he and his naughtiest cow Betty are led on an adventure across the magical land of Mandari where they meet the greedy mayor, the mysterious Mackie McKee and Wise Old Mr Dude who warns them of the dangers of a great fortune.
“This is an amusing and moving tale of temptation, greed and friendship where the audience can join in with the catchy songs, bid for a Golden Cowpat in a hilarious auction and even choose the story’s ending,” Janine went on.
The play is suitable for children aged four years and over along with their families and is being staged on Friday, May 31, at 11am and 2pm in Ropery Hall. Tickets cost £4 for adults and £3 for children and can be booked by calling 01652 660380 or calling in at the Craft Gallery.
The recent production, the Noisy Oyster’s The Three Billy Pigs, which ST-ART staged during the Easter Holidays attracted an audience of nearly 80 young people and their families.
