Theatre for kids in Lincoln this July

[tab name=’Overview’]

Kids in Lincoln have the chance to see some international theatre this July.

Beam! 2011 is a children’s arts festival, with a series of events in the city. This year’s focus is internationalism.

Italian theatre group La Barraca will perform Colours of Water at Lincoln’s Drill Hall on July 6, at £5 a ticket.

The performance, aimed at 1 to 4-year-olds, recently won Best Show for the Very Young at the International Festival of Theatre for Young People in Bucharest, Romania.

It’s described as “a play made of lights, sounds, images and movements, where words fade into the background to accompany the action.”

On July 9 at the Drill Hall, Scottish theatre group Vision Mechanics will perform the A Frog Princess, using storytelling and puppetry. Tickets are £5 and the recommended age range is 3 to 8-years-old.

Beam! 2010 Co-Director David Lambert said: “We are delighted to be promoting two high quality children’s performances, both of whom are internationally renowned for their stunning and creative work.”

Also on July 9, there will be a creative drama and craft workshop based on Hansel and Gretel with local company Storybook Days. The two-hour workshop will involve drama, craft, including making your own sweet house, games, and pebble art. It costs £7.50 per child.
