Flying Tales Children’s theatre workshop

Saturday, 22nd June 2019

Flying Tales Drama workshops for youngsters.
The workshops are designed to encourage stories from play.
We may use a Cornish lore, a new-fangled idea or your hidden wild haired family legend as a starting point.
We will head off, twiddle with words, keeping pace with fable and stroll them into tales about stuff.
The very stuff that dreams are made of, then proceed to throw in some bright heeled tinder to catch the imagination and startle the slumbering mind’s eye.
There will be movement, possibly mime, maybe a mask and plenty of time.Saturday June 22nd 4:00 pm
The open-air theatre is situated in front of Penlee House in Penlee Park, Penzance, Cornwall.
