THE CARNIVAL OF THE ANIMALS
Presented by Finger and Thumb
Tues 4 April & Wed 5 April
Wed: 11am, 2pm
“I am in awe at how many different animals you conveyed. My son and I were both captivated.” – Natalie Rope, parent
“I was really blown away by the performance, such a lovely show. It was incredibly entertaining and the children absolutely loved it!” – Katie Sunlay, Fly Girl Films
Finger and Thumb Theatre’s new show is all about creative collaboration. When a lowly pianist and a star kazoo player step on stage to give an important recital, their shadows quickly take over to express their true feelings about each other – until the shadows show them that it is better to work together if you want to make something beautiful.
The much-loved music of Camille Saint-Saëns (played by a concert pianist) combines with the visual magic of Drew Colby’s hand shadows to create a spell-binding, hilarious and (in the words of the children at the preview performances) “amazing and mysterious” virtuoso performance.
Commissioned by Junction, Goole and funded by the Arts Council.
The Carnival of the Animals is aimed at ages 4-9.
