Following our success with Christmas One Hope last year, we are creating an interactive and inspiring production that churches can book for children in their area. As Saltmine wishes to bless our local area, this production is being offered to West Midland Bookers only.
ONCE UPON A CHRISTMAS TIME – new for 2012.
It is the night before Christmas, a time for miracles and merrymaking; magic is in the air. Two stunning stone statues, that have been gathering moss all year, are awakened to tell the story of the deep, dark woods and the monster that lives within them.
Is all really as it seems though? Is the monster really so monstrous? And are these statues really as beautiful as they first appear?
Join Saltmine Theatre Company in a unique and magical Christmas story, for primary aged children that explores where true beauty lies and gives an old fairytale a festive twist. This production can also be accompanied by a workshop that expands the themes of the play to explore the true meaning of Christmas.
Once Upon A Christmas Time will last about 50 minutes and will be ideal for church kids clubs, family services / outreach events and for primary schools (suitable for reception – year 6). It will take about 45 minutes to set up but will not require any staging, lighting or sound: our actors simply need a clear floor space in a church, a community venue or a primary school. The production can be accompanied by an interactive workshop (for a small group) that explores the themes of the play and what we celebrate at Christmas.
Touring Dates: 28th November – 21st December 2012. Ministry Gift: £250 for one performance only. £350 for one performance and one workshop. For more information or to book your date, please contact Joanna Bell on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01384 454807.
