The Thing That Came From Over There!, 27th to 28th January
Inspired by the movies of the 1950s, this is a fast paced rollicking ride mixing paranoia, suspense and hilariously gruesome deaths. It’s 1912 and as Scott and Amundsen begin their race across Antarctica the hapless explorer Captain Reginald Cranston has accidentally landed on the wrong side of the continent. As Cranston and his motley band set up base camp, a meteor crashed nearby. Deciding to investigate, they set out towards the crash site, unaware of the danger that awaits not just them, but the whole planet earth…
Jack and the Beans Talk, 18th March
Was it a dream, or did I hear a talking bean? Jack lives on a farm with his mum and very little to eat. He likes to talk to the birds, his cow and anyone who will listen. Imagine his surprise when he swaps his cow for some magic beans and starts to hear a whispering in the breeze and a giant rumble in the sky… This is a fresh and funny retelling of the traditional story, charming and inventive with lots of interaction, an enormous beanstalk, bags of gold and a smelly old giant. For audiences 3+.
Under My Skin, 24th March
Bella’s life is messy and difficult but at least she has Sean Barnet: Sean Barnet, the fittest, cleverest boy in the whole school. The only problem is, she’s never spoken a work to him. As Bella tries to become part of Sean’s life, she discovers things she never expected and struggles to understand.
Reviews of A Christmas Carol
4th December 2015 to 2nd January 2016.
There are reviews from the Oxford Times ("an unmissable festive treat" 4/5) and Daily Info ("included puppetry and mime interspersed with slapstick, audience participation and moments of intense drama and emotion... a production which brought tears to my eyes, and challenged me, again and again to think about the real spirit of Christmas").
