Artsreach presents Squashbox Theatre: Curious Creatures
Friday 26th July 2019 at 2:30pm in Blandford Corn Exchange
The next Artsreach show in Blandford is for children right at the start of the school holidays. There’s also a puppet making workshop after the show.
Expect to meet curious creatures of all shapes and sizes: from performing fleas, skateboarding snails and gymnastic gerbils to irritable alligators, over-excited elephants, and a very intelligent orangutan! Learn about how animals evolved, how their amazing adaptations help them survive in the wild, and how animals can help us learn more about ourselves.
Using puppets, comedy and live music, plus lots of amazing natural history facts, Squashbox Theatre will uncover the mysteries of the animal kingdom. No animals were harmed in the making of this show, but several puppets were mildly traumatised!
Suitable for children 5+
Tickets £6, £5 (u18s), £20 family. Tickets available from 01258 480698 or www.artsreach.co.uk
Post-show Puppet Making Workshop 3:45pm.
Places £3 per child
Come and make puppets with Squashbox Theatre! Using simple materials and card templates, create a moving, articulated puppet to take home. Children can make one of the animals from 'Curious Creatures' or invent a new, mixed-up crazy creature! This workshop develops design skills, use of different tools and materials, and encourages thinking about shape, texture, size and scale. Places limited - booking advised. Children must be accompanied. ... See more
