Stripey Honey is Very Yummy….

Mashi Theatre presents; Stripey Honey…is very yummy!

A Big Imagination’s commission in partnership with The Spark Arts for Children & supported by The Dukes, Lancaster.

Suitable for all adventurers aged 5+ and their grown-ups.

Stripey Honey … is very yummy! is a touching and funny story of how tigers, bees and honey collectors learn to live and play together.

Adventure into the Sunderbans, the land between India and Bangladesh, the home of the Royal Bengal Tigers and Honey Bees, as Mashi takes you on a playful journey into the jungle to discover how the tigers and honey bees struggle for survival.

As fisher-women leave their boats on the river to collect honey, they keep a look out for roaming tigers, with fierce masks on the backs of their heads as their only protection. Journeying into the jungle, they climb high into the trees to collect some honey from the giant bees …. but what happens when the tigers lend them a paw?

Mashi brings a new play to young audiences of adventure and fun with music by award-winning composer Arun Ghosh, song, dance and puppetry, exploring the lives of some of our most precious but endangered species, who unite to save their homes.

THE BOY AND THE MERMAID

 

Presented by Paper Balloon Theatre and supported by The Big Imaginations.

On the farthest edge of a wind-battered rock there sits a  small fishing town.  Sometimes it feels like the town is on the edge of the world. That’s mainly because it is.  

The Boy lives with his Grandma, forbidden from venturing beyond the shore, but the terrifying tales told of horrors in the deep only whet his appetite - he stares at the ocean and dreams. Can one unlikely friendship save the Town On The Sea from catastrophe? 

Join three abundantly be-bearded storytellers as they weave a fishy tale of musical merfolk, menacing monsters and spectacularly bad town planning. With live music, puppetry, a rapping octopus and a shifting set full of surprises – this enchanting show is fun for all the family (5+). 

Suitable for ages 5+
Showtime 12noon and 2.30pm
Astley Cheetham Gallery, Trinity St, Stalybridge, SK15 2BN
Tickets £3 per child, accompanying adult free (max 1 per child).
