As well as the rock’n’roll pantomime, the New Wolsey Theatre will be hosting an alternative Christmas show over at their studio for younger theatre fans – THE PAPER DOLLS, from Tue 1 December 2015 to Saturday 2 January 2016
From the award-winning author of The Gruffalo Julia Donaldson, THE PAPER DOLLS is suitable for ages 3 to 7, and the New Wolsey Theatre is delighted to announce that they will be hosting a British Sign Language Interpreted performance on Friday 18 December at 2pm.
When a little girl cuts out a string of paper dolls she takes them by the hand and together they go on a fantastical adventure whirling through their home and garden. Ticky, Tacky, Jackie the Backie, Jim with two noses and Jo with the bow fly through time and tear across worlds of fun and excitement. They face the jurassic clutches of a toy dinosaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, and then a very real boy with very real scissors threatens to snip their adventure short…
“As magical a theatrical experience for children as one could wish for”
Julia Donaldson on The Paper Dolls
Adapted from the acclaimed book by Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson, this magical tale is brought to life through puppetry and music. This is a new co-production between Little Angel Theatre and Polka Theatre; reigniting an inspiring creative partnership between Peter Glanville and Lyndie Wright who last worked together to produce Macbeth, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and The Magician’s Daughter.
