Our special new festive show for children under 5 will open on 3 December. We’ve got some lovely production shots ahead of the show – take a peek!
On a dark stage, a little light begins to flicker. Soon after, a sound starts to come from the light. Not just a sound, but a voice! Soft and slow, sighing, then humming. The light soon learns how to make other sounds too! Long vowels and prickly consonants, giggles and song, as it shines on the objects around it. A sparkly disco ball starts to find its spin. And in time, other objects follow suit. Babbling and toddling, finding their voice together. Until at last, a party is born.
In this production, party objects come to life to discover their unique personalities and learn how to work in harmony to create the perfect party. Life of the Party is a show about finding your voice. It’s about learning how to navigate your body and the world. Most of all, it is about celebrating the joys (and challenges) of being part of a family and community.
Take a first look below (Greg Macvean photography).
