Children love to pretend. They love stories. What better way is there to flare their imagination than a magical trip to the theatre? But as a parent, taking young children to a performance can be daunting – what if they don’t sit still during the performance? What if they’re loud and disrupt the actors? What if they need the toilet half way through?
Never fear! The great thing about Children’s Theatre is that they can run around, shout out, dance – they’ll be so absorbed by the sights and sounds and the best thing is they’ll be encouraged to take part! And at Wem Town Hall we have plenty on offer this summer.
Arnold’s Big Adventure is a children’s show geared towards introducing children to the splendour of theatre. Taking part in a great bell tent, Arnold’s Big Adventure features beautiful shadow puppetry, wonderful original music to sing along to and plenty of thrilling surprises along the way…
Gather under the branches for the biggest day in the woodland calendar, Drop Day! Arnold the acorn is about to drop from his tree and begin his amazing adventure in search of somewhere to put down his roots. Join Arnold as his story flies in the wind, wiggles across the land and splashes into the sea… Who will he meet along the way and will he ever find the perfect spot to call home?
This show is suitable for ages 3 – 10 years and is 30 minutes long.
“From the moment the show started, I could see my daughter was transfixed…just brilliant, so creative and engaging with the children (and the adults)…it was pitched just right. The actors did a brilliant job of making sure that every child was involved in some way.” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Whatsgoodtodo.com
“Arnold’s Big Adventure was amazing! My two Daughters absolutely loved every minute and not long after the show had finished asked when can we see Arnold again?! Thank you and please come back to Darlington to see us again soon” Audience member following a production at Darlington Civic Theatre, May 2015
