The New Wolsey Theatre will be hosting an alternative Christmas show in their studio for younger theatre fans – The Paper Dolls.
From the award-winning author of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson, The Paper Dolls is suitable for ages three to seven, and the New Wolsey Theatre will also be hosting a British Sign Language Interpreted performance on Friday, December 18 at 2pm.
When a little girl cuts out a string of paper dolls she takes them by the hand and together they go on a fantastical adventure whirling through their home and garden.
Ticky, Tacky, Jackie the Backie, Jim with two noses and Jo with the bow fly through time and tear across worlds of fun and excitement. They face the Jurassic clutches of a toy dinosaur and the snapping jaws of the oven-glove crocodile, and then a very real boy with very real scissors threatens to snip their adventure short.
This magical tale is brought to life through puppetry and music and is a new co-production between Little Angel Theatre and Polka Theatre; reigniting a partnership between Peter Glanville and Lyndie Wright, whose work includes Macbeth, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and The Magician’s Daughter.
