Encore Youth Theatre’s twisted fairy tales

Round & About

Join the youngsters of Encore Youth Theatre and journey into A Forest Full of Fairy Tales

Remember the rules of the woods’ as you enter A Forest Full of Fairy Tales in the company of Encore, the youth theatre of Sinodun Players at the Corn Exchange on June 28th and 29th.

Following 2022’s acclaimed production of Shakespeare Shake Up, the young actors will once again take to the stage at the Corn Exchange with their interpretation of some of our best-loved fairtytales.

The forest is home to a world of adventures as Little Red Riding Hood fights off wolves, a Frog Prince tries to marry a Princess, Snow White is chased by an Evil Queen, four skilled sisters recuse a Prince, Cinderella goes from rags to riches and Rapunzel hears all of these stories in secret!

Join Footlights group (year 3-5), Limelights (year 6-8) and Spotlights (year 8-10) as they delve in to the world of these extraordinary characters. As always with the talented young people they will be putting their own spin on things… don’t expect feeble Princesses and traditional tales!

Tickets £8, under 18s £6. Book online at cornexchange.org.uk

Alongside regular weekly Encore classes, there are holiday workshops where children work together every day for a week to create a play which is performed to an invited audience on the Friday. During the week students make props, gather costumes, create characters, learn lines and make friends. It is a brilliant opportunity for children to experience the work of the theatre as well as the technical side. Another huge bonus in joining is the chance to be part of the Sinodun Players’ pantomime.
