Easter children’s theatre at Ropery Hall

By janetuplin |

David Melling’s charming children’s tale, Hugless Douglas, will be brought to life at Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall during the Easter holidays.

The Blunderbus Theatre Company will be bringing the story of the huggable, lovable young brown bear who wakes up one morning in need of a hug to the Maltkiln Road venue thanks to the children’s art charity, ST-ART.

“This is the first time that this particular theatre company has come to Ropery Hall and I am sure that they will be performing a captivating tale for both children and adults alike,” said Janine Knight, ST-ART’s Project Worker.

“The book, about a huggable, lovable young brown bear who wakes up one morning in need of a hug, must have been read in thousands of homes at bedtime and now there is the chance to see the characters brought to life in this show which combines an irresistible blend of music, puppetry and high energy storytelling,” Janine went  on.

The production, which lasts just under an hour without an interval, is being performed on Wednesday, April 8, at 11am and 2pm.  Tickets, which cost £4 for adults and £3 for children, can be bought in person from The Ropewalk’s Craft Gallery or by telephoning 01652 660380.
