An excited audience of about 45 youngsters — together with their appropriate adults! — enjoyed a lively and cheerful performance of The Dragon That Hates Poetry at the Community Centre on Friday October 18th.
Performance poet Dommy B brought much laughter and some splendid joining in bits to the excited audience. With some lovely visual effects and some inspired 'instant poetry' Dommy B held his audience well.
What particularly pleased the youngsters was how willing he was to talk to them, both during the intermission and afterwards. Many members of the audience took the opportunity to purchase his recently published book of poems.
Over a drink with him afterwards — a perk of the promoter! — Dommy, otherwise known as Dominic Berry, said how much he had enjoyed coming to Tarvin. He realized that the audience was rather younger than usual, so adapted his performance by coming down from the stage to engage more directly with the young people. This also had the effect of re-focusing their attention and calming down their excitement.
Dominic has taken this piece to the Edinburgh Festival, and has since been touring with it in the North West.
Sue Hardacre said, "This was a great piece of children's theatre and we were delighted that so many people came. Once again, we are indebted to Cheshire Rural Touring Arts for helping us bring such good performers to Tarvin. We also made a modest profit, which was a pleasant bonus"
The Community Centre were especially pleased to welcome to the performance a little girl who had chosen the evening as a birthday treat and brought 14 of her friends along as well!

The next theatrical production is on Friday 1st November at 7.30pm. 6 Impossible Things . More details in another article today.
