Due to popular demand, we’ve added another performance of Egg and Spoon on the 20 July!
This summer enjoy a charming, interactive show that has been specifically designed for young children aged between 1 and 5.
The show guides little ones through the magic of the seasons with a hands-on journey through the different stages of the year. Percy and April will be your guides as they introduce you to their friend Birdy. As the performance starts, Birdy is still hiding in his glowing egg, but come springtime he’ll find his way into the world to meet all our theatre-goers.
So come along and settle into the comfortable cushions as Percy and April take you on a journey through the rain and the falling leaves, sleeping under the snow until the sun wakes us up for the butterfly party!
The production has been adapted for stage and performed by Patrick Lynch. Patrick studied psychology at Glasgow University, before moving into dramatherapy. He has worked extensively with special-needs groups and in children’s theatre since 2003. Since 2006, he has been presenting children’s television programmes on Cbeebies.
The show has delighted children all over the world, from New York to Singapore, and now it comes to Stamford Arts Centre this summer, not once, but twice! Don’t miss this delightful piece of theatre.
“Suitable for even the shortest attention spans.” The New York Times
“Most important is the company's ability to work at a pace and with a simple directness that gains genuine responses and involvement from very young people” reviewsgate.com
The very young won’t sit still to watch a show and we don’t expect them to!
Egg and Spoon is a perfect gentle introduction to the magic of theatre.
