Our Current Season
Forest Forge News
Fun in the Sun
Our next Youth Theatre venture is a family theatre day on 20th July in Ringwood. Our oldest members of youth theatre are currently working hard creating 3 new performances for children. Sunshine Storytime will be a sensory piece for under 3 year olds and will take them and a teddy of their choice to the seaside using story, rhyme and movement to involve the audience. For the under 7's there will be a puppet version of Tom Thumb and Thumbelina narrated by puppets, performed by puppets in a magical piece of storytelling. And finally there is Story Quest, a promenade adventure for under 11's in which the audience get to take part and influence the story. These performances will repeat all morning so there will be plenty of opportunity to catch them all.Read More...
