Spent nearly a week in Northampton working with a wonderful team of people and performers to premiere our stage vision and version of Julia Donaldson's great children's book, The Singing Mermaid. Our mermaid is a puppet, one of many in the show made by Lyndie Wright of The Little Angel Theatre. Our premier was on Saturday and the show runs till mid January at The Royal and Derngate Theatre in the beautiful market town of Northampton. I even liked the Travel Lodge there, our temporary home. This is a magical piece and we are all proud of it, watching the children absorb it on saturday was a treat.
for tickets. Its for children under 7 but there are all ages there. Couldn't be prouder of it and our circus family.
Next its up to Manchester to open How To Hide a Lion at The Royal Exchange there for Christmas. We made this for Polka Theatre for Christmas 2016 and it tours later next year in 2018. Its a gorgeous show and I cannot wait to see how people like it in my old home city.
