An Inspector Calls  – for 3 dancers in 3 acts

Choreographed by Sue Lewis

Music - Edward Elgar, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Mike Oldfield

JB Priestley’s play in 3 acts is a superb example of perfect characterisation and an examination of social class.  The main characters Arthur, Sybil, Sheila, Eric, Gerald, Inspector Goode and Eva/Daisy are all played by all of our dancers.  They interchange between the characters; the neutrality of the costumes suggest no gender, the only clue to which character is played is layering and changing of the outer garments which is symbolic of their person.

The first 2 tracks of music by Elgar and Vaughan Williams are beautifully lyrical pieces of instrumental music written by British composers and portray a very evocative image of British landscape and broad rolling countryside. The third track is perhaps more well known, composed by Oldfield and brings us into the 21st Century: it rushes along and is functional and structured.

Teddy's Picnic
Tuesday 14 April11am


Teddy's Picnic

by Mike Brooks

Eddy The Teddy and his best friend Sammy Ragdoll decide that tomorrow would be just the day for a picnic.

Sammy says she'll have to organise everything because Eddy probably won't be able to. Eddy pleads for Sammy to give him a chance to help. Sammy doesn't want her friend to think she doesn't trust him so she agrees, fearing the worst.

Will she be pleasantly surprised?

The show uses many elements of theatre, mime, puppetry and songs to join in with. It's a perfect introduction to live entertainment for children who've never been to a show before, and a welcome return for Eddy the Teddy's young fans.

Suitable for children aged 3-6 years old

Treasure Island

by Robert Louis Stevenson  and adapted by Mike Brooks

Treasure Island is Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of pirates and buried treasure from Bristol to a faraway Island.

"Pieces of Eight! Pieces of eight!" yells Captain Flint, the parrot. This book is also where the phrase "You ho ho and a bottle of Rum!" comes from.

Meet Jim Hawkins, a young lad who gets himself caught up in an adventure across the seas. Follow the story as Jim meets Captain Smollett, Billy Bones and the most famous pirate of them all Long John Silver.

Barking Dog's two talented actors (with the help of a some puppets and children from the audience) present this exciting tale.

With original music and audience participation as well as use of puppetry and mime, this is ideal for any book week, projects on travel, pirates, adventure, Music or Drama.
