19 October: 4pm Poppanoodle Theatre presents ‘Two Marys, Five Jacks and One Very Big Shoe’ (suitable for 2-5yrs)

The Cornish theatre company, Poppanoodle Theatre and their latest show, ‘Two Marys, Five Jacks and One Very Big Shoe’ are coming to Calstock Arts. The show is aimed at 2 to 5 year olds and there will be two  performances (morning and afternoon), one during (1100) and one after school (1600).

The show will last about 40 minutes

Calstock Arts has contacted local schools and pre schools and it is hoped that some schools will bring their children to the school time performance, though there may be some tickets left.

The later performance (1600) is for those that will come with their family or carers.

The performance is based on a story of Wee Willie Winkie who lives with his sister Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary and his mother the Old Woman who Lived in a Shoe. Wee Willie Winkie wants to have some fun before bed one night and acts out a play to his mother with the help of his sister and the audience. Numerous nursery rhymes are recreated in this fast-paced production for children of 2 to 5 years. With laughter, music and song this piece has something for little ones and their grown-ups.

Calstock Parish Council have very kindly provided a grant towards the cost of this performance. Therefore we are able to offer tickets for £1 per child. Donations from adults appreciated but not expected.
