Playgroup Invited to Shape Future Production

Shape of thingsBenachie Playgroup was thrilled to be asked to participate in a new project being undertaken by Starcatchers, the pioneering multi-arts organisation developing projects specifically for young children.  We were invited to be a ‘test audience’ of toddlers to help inform and shape a piece of children’s theatre currently in development.

Yesterday, our children enjoyed the wonderful experience of viewing, “The Shape of Things” – a work in progress from the collaborative team of Ailie Cohen and Marc MacLochlainn.

The show captured the children’s imagination from the very outset, with two very talented performers playing guitar and using puppetry to tell their story.  From the children’s responses to the music, puppetry, and humour in the show, it was clear that everyone involved had a fabulous time!

We’d like to thank Starcatchers, the creators, and the performers, for sharing this enchanting piece of theatre with the children of Benachie.  We hope you will come and visit us at Carnegie Hall another time!
