AT LEEDS LIBRARY
An exciting family-friendly pop-up theatre show for ages 3-8 is all set to light up a popular Leeds Library arts-space next month.
Created by local theatre company Wrongsemble, and generously supported by Arts Council England, ‘The Princess and the Sprout’ at Leeds Central Library’s ‘Room 700’ promises to be a production that will offer no ordinary Christmas treat to its audience. Bursting with brilliant original live music, magical characters and Wrongsemble’s much-loved mischievous humour, each show will be rounded off with a free interactive ‘stay and play’ session with the cast on stage.
Directed by Wrongsemble’s Artistic Director Elvi Piper and designed by Antony Jones, the piece will be devised by the company of northern-based talent – Rosie Fox, Edith Kirkwood and Russell Richardson bringing a modern festive twist to a range of favourite fairy tales.
The show has been designed to allow a wide a range of Leeds’ families to experience this magical festive production with the company staging two Relaxed Performances, BSL Interpreted shows, and offering heavily subsidised tickets throughout the run at £5 for Children/Concessions, £7 Adults, and a family of four ticket for a mere £20.
Running from Friday 7 December until Monday 31st December 2018, the production will also offer as part of its programme to ensure that as many families as possible have the chance to enjoy the performance, two Relaxed Performances and BSL Interpreted shows.
