On Friday Nov 2nd at 6.00 pm the Community centre is delighted to be offering an invitation to younger Tarvin residents to come and see The Snow Queen. This timeless tale has been specially adapted for younger audiences and their grown ups by Tutti Frutti, a young, professional company who specialise in children's theatre.

Sue Hardacre explained "Some of you may remember that five years ago we had a version of this tale told in a very operatic fashion which was quite complex. Though enjoyed by most of the audience, some younger children found it a bit difficult to follow. My own 3-year-old grandson shouted out a very emphatic "no" when asked by the cast if he had enjoyed it! Tutti Frutti assure me that this version is specifically aimed at younger people — 3 is the recommended lower age — and, while the dark themes of the tale are still there, song and dance, colour and laughter, will ensure that the positive message is prominent. It should be a great show"

The Community Centre Committee have developed a tradition in offering children's theatre under the umbrella of Cheshire Rural Touring Arts. While acknowledging that there is a wealth of excellent entertainment in digital form now available, they believe that seeing creativity in the flesh, so to speak, is hugely important. The choice of shows is governed by what is on the CRTA menu, and by the spaces in the calendar, but they hope to continue offering live theatre in the future.

Sue says "Numbers are important. This is not about making a profit but about providing an audience of a sufficient size so that they, and the theatre company, can enjoy a collective experience."

Tickets are £7 for adults and £5 for children. You can buy them at the Post Office or online at They will be available on the door, but it would be of great help if you buy in advance.

The show, deliberately set at 6.00pm, the same time as the children's film night, will last for an hour, and the audience will have an opportunity to talk to the cast after the show.
