It was a small but enthusiastic audience that enjoyed the playful and delightful Boxy and Sticky performance yesterday (Monday 27th June) Theatr Iolo's production was specifically written for little ones and its combination of colour, sound and staging drew the audience in. Children loved the idea that they were watching big people behaving like little people, like them in fact.

Sue Hardacre, promoter for the Community Centre said "I think the fact that so many of our prospective audience had been away for the day on a school trip had an effect on audience numbers. I know that if I had a tired child on my hands I might have hesitated to rush them along to another event. But I was delighted with the response from those who came and the Community Centre will continue to promote high quality children's theatre in the future. Thanks to the great support we get from families for such things like the Family Film Night, we are in a great financial position and can take artistic risks. This is about entertaining our children and not about raising funds."
Parents who missed the show can catch it again at Theatre Clwyd on Saturday August 20th as part of their Family Arts Festival. Seats can be booked now at www.theatrclwyd.com and are free as part of the festival.

There are a number of excellent children's theatre companies in the region, but the Community Centre usually takes performances subsidised by Cheshire Rural Touring Arts. The choices for the autumn season are a little more limited than usual, so the net may have to be spread a little wider. Parents who enjoy taking their children to the theatre are reminded that there will be a panto again on December 3rd, the afternoon of the Christmas Market. This year it is Sleeping Beauty who will be providing the entertainment.
