The Musical Storytellers
November 13th 11:00 am
BOOKING INFORMATION: Due to the limited size of The Coach House Theatre, customers will be asked to wear face coverings beyond 19th July.
The Musical Storytellers bring well-known classical music, and the story of that music, to young audiences. With inventive, innovative and humerous presentation, children (and adults) will be entranced and entertained as they listen to the music and stories. Both educational and fun, these programmes offer an enjoyable introduction to a range of music, and numerous cross-curricular opportunities for follow-ups – drawing and colouring, creative writing, poetry, music, dance and story-telling.
Each show lasts about 30 minutes and the repertoire currently includes: Ferdinand the Bull, Peer Gynt, Carnival of the Animals, Pictures at an Exhibition, The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and more.
