The theatre is coming back to Itchen Valley Country Park this summer holiday, with a programme of Live at the Park events brought to you by The Point, Eastleigh.
The summer holidays can seem a very long time when trying to think of things to keep the kids entertained, but with the Live at the Park programme of events families can enjoy watching live performances outside in the sunshine with a picnic or ice cream.
Fun and farcical family adventure King Arthur by The Last Baguette theatre company is up next on Friday 29 July at 3pm. This story of the old world, with knights, wizards, mist, and magic, is a deliberately anarchic and anachronistic re-telling of the Arthurian Legend with live music, physical comedy, and lo-fi acrobatics. Suitable for ages five and over.
Awful Auntie by David Walliams, adapted for the outdoor stage by Heartbreak Productions, is a truly thrilling tale! Owls, ghosts, chases, escapes, motorcycle rides and tiddlywinks fill Stella’s days as she evades her menacing Aunt and saves the family home. The show, which takes place on Sunday 14 August at 4pm, is suitable for ages 7 and over.
Award-winning theatre company Calf2Cow’s retelling of Kenneth Grahame’s classic story The Wind in the Willows hits the park on Friday 19 August at 3.30pm. Join Mole, Ratty and Badger in a floor-stomping, hilarious recount of this woodland adventure, suitable for all ages, as they save Toad and his shiny new motorcar from deep trouble.
Tickets for all family shows are priced £13 / £11 concessions / £41 for a family of four.
