About this event -
Birthdays are special, they are seen as one of the most anticipated and celebrated days of the year for children and adults alike, but do your little ones count down the days to their celebration or dread the thought of being in the spotlight?
Especially on Birthdays follows a pair of 5-year-old twins in the lead up to their sixth birthday. While they share a lot of things, their opinion of birthdays is not one of them. One twin can’t wait for their big day while the other despairs at the thought of it. Living in the shadow of his twin sister is a comfortable place for Stephen to be, so when circumstances threaten to place him in the limelight, he wants out!
Created by one of the country’s leading children’s theatre producers, Dave Brown (former Artistic Director of Patch Theatre Company) in association with The PaperBoats Project, this intimate visual-theatre experience for children aged from 3 – 10 years recreates the ups, downs, roundabouts and fun of birthdays.
Performed in an intimate setting the show invites participation from children, evoking an inclusive party environment. Several children are invited to participate in parts of the show and the atmosphere onstage ensures they feel special and included, whilst recreating all the excitement of the most anticipated day of the year.
Part performance, part game, part celebration, the performance engages children in deeply human stories of friendship, play, giving, receiving, sharing and understanding.
