Fun family-friendly theatre for May half term at TBTL
It’s Hot, It’s Not by Reckless Sleepers is a brilliant 45-minute non-verbal show packed with fun, silliness and giant beach balls – it’s just right for children age 2+ who love splashing around in puddles and running around in the sunshine.
Ever found yourself being asked the big tricky questions by your little one? Things like: Why is it that sometimes I’m hot but you’re cold? Why are there puddles and sometimes not? How can it be sunny and rainy all at once and also not at all? And if it’s summer here, why is it winter there? Then bring them along to this bright and bouncy show that explores the weather in all its forms and delights in discovering the world anew. Their marvellous minds will be fizzing happily all day long!
If you’ve got older children, then there’s something wonderful on offer for them during the holidays at the Keswick theatre too, with Fettle & Fable Theatre Company’s fast-paced, uplifting Inkonjane, The Lightning Bird, for children age 6+. It’s a beautiful tale that’ll take you from Keswick to South Africa and back again, told through puppetry, music and song.
Jenna awakes one day to find the swallow that usually nests outside her bedroom window has disappeared, so she decides to find out where her little friend has got to. This takes her on a incredible adventure, following the swallow’s migration through grasslands, mountains, cities, rainforests, rivers, seas and even as far as the moon!
Inkonjane was made in collaboration with South African artists including renowned musician Eugene Skeef and featuring the voice of Zanele Ndlovu as Nolwazi. Money from the production helps to support the ongoing work and development of the Novulakuvaliwe Library based in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
