NONSENSE & STUFF

Mad Alice presents a wonderful new  play for children KS2 (ages 7yrs and over) & family audiences.

Inspired by the much loved nonsense verse & poetry of such Greats as Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, Roald Dahl, Ivor Cutler & Lennon!  It tells the story of an eccentric lady, Gertie, who meets an equally absurd ukulele playing scarecrow, George, on her way to the supermarket and the frolicking foray of folly and fun that ensues! Enjoy their encounters with a friendly ‘Porcupine’, join them in a dance with ‘The Man in The Moon’, share in a slice of  ‘Frivolous Cake’, and, perhaps it may even be ‘You Who Are A Walrus?!’.

A hilarious, whacky show,  full of audience participation pitched for children 7yrs and over and their families, 7yrs and over as these children get more out of the poetry BUT younger siblings also enjoy the show just as much as the songs, slaptick humour, and general silliness keeps them entertained!  Through the fun and laughter children realise just how entertaining poetry can be and are inspire to read more and indeed write their own poetry.

 

Curriculum links: DRAMA, ENGLISH, MUSIC, PSHE, CITIZENSHIP.

Performance duration: approx. 50mins (no interval).

Available for both indoor and outdoor touring.
