Jump In! Make a Play in 3 Days

Led by Troublemaker Theatre Company

Create a play from scratch in just three days!

Explore different elements of theatre such as acting and script writing before performing your masterpiece at the end of the course.

This year's theme is The Plastic, Fur and Digital Meltdown

It’s games vs. toys, the battle for supremacy has begun. Come and help create this show from scratch. With nothing but a starting idea and a title you will devise a performance to entertain and amuse, with the guidance of professional theatre practitioners.

Could Barbie beat Mario in a celebrity wrestling match? If Paddington was stuck in the world of Minecraft would everything be made of marmalade sandwiches? Can Action-man escape from the Snakes and Ladders prison? The ideas are up to you.

Mon 9 – Wed 11 Apr
10am – 4pm (Wed 5pm)
£90 (£80 Advantage Card)

Suitable for ages 10+ years.

The Fir Tree

by Tove Jansson

From Tales in Moominvalley

The Moomin family was hibernating in the drawing room as they were wont to do. They had been sleeping for a few months already and were going to keep it up until spring… Now all at once a cold draught disturbed Moomintroll’s dreams. And someone was pulling at his quilt and shouting that he was tired and Christmas was coming.

Featuring live puppetry and music, The Fir Tree is an adventure set in the idyllic and peaceful Moominvalley. It is a gloriously unselfish take on Christmas.

Suitable for all audiences from 3 years and upwards.

Presented by Norden Farm, The Ding Foundation, Bernadette Russell and Steve Tiplady.
