Information for Venues
This show tells the story of a boy who goes off on an adventure – and returns with knowledge and power to make his world a better place to be. Combining simple theatre and science ‘magic’, the story, characters and emotions depicted will have relevance to children’s everyday lives, and will resonate through home and school life.
The production is conceived as a 2 person small scale touring show, that is quickly set up and performed in non-theatre venues with minimal lighting. Workshops and activity packs will also be available to schools and venues alongside the production.
The following supplementary activity will be available:
•an activity pack for families and teachers.
•pre or post show family puppet and science workshops
We will encourage and enable parents, carers and children to explore the themes of the show through making and telling stories.
Support for the project:
The project is funded by Arts Council England and FEAST. The project is supported by KEAP, RIO, Cornwall Learning, Hall for Cornwall, Kneehigh and Truro Learning Academy.
The target audience for this activity are children between the ages of 5 and 11 and their parents, carers and teachers.
