Lovely show puts down the roots of theatre for the young

Southport Visiter - - For The Family -

HALF Moon present Leaf at The Atkin­son on Satur­day, Septem­ber 8. A leaf is born… It grows and glows in the sun­shine and the rain.

Then the wind blows and be­comes colder.

The leaf changes colour. it In the snow, the leaf falls… But when spring comes, a new leaf grows…

Join Haf Moon as they tell the life story of a very spe­cial leaf in this warm, in­ti­mate and play­ful new piece for un­der-threes in­spired by na­ture and the sea­sons.

Framed within an evoca­tive sound- scape, this is the per­fect in­tro­duc­tion to theatre for the very young.

Leaf is an­other heart-warm­ing play cre­ated by Tam Tam Theatre, whose pre­vi­ous shows for very young chil­dren in­clude Cir­cles in the Sand and Cu­ri­ous.

The com­pany’s founder, Mar­leen Ver­meulen, cre­ated Leaf in col­la­bor- ation with di­rec­tor Joy Haynes.

At the end of the per­for­mance, chil­dren are in­vited on to the stage to play among the leaves and ex­plore a land­scape cre­ated by the chang­ing sea­sons.

Per­for­mance is suit­able for ages three and un­der.

There are three per­for­mances tak- ing place at 11.30am, 1pm and 3pm on Satur­day, Septem­ber 8.

Tick­ets cost £8 (£6 chil­dren / £24 fam­ily) plus book­ing fee of £1 per ticket on­line/phone.
