In collaboration with the Bromsgrove Artrix and the Arts Council of England, Snail Tales brings you another chance to enjoy a collection of stories you won't find anywhere else — because every crazy character and potty plot has been born from the endlessly imaginative minds of children from UK primary schools. Genies in teapots and hat-munching squirrels are just a few of the characters joining boys and girls like you on fantastical exploits and daring quests.
Each story is brought to life with brand new puppets, original songs, and more opportunities to jump on stage and join in. Families with children aged 3-11 years will collect more fond memories at the hands of our magic-spinning storytellers.
Sometimes moral, sometimes delightfully absurd, but always colourful, curious, and fun... Journey through a creative world made for children, by the people who know them best — children!
In A Bird In Your Ear, you are in the show the moment you step through the theatre doors! Be prepared to find clues to stories above, behind and around you.
Not only that, but our storytellers will create a brand new fairy tale with you, live on stage, that they will then share with future audiences! You will help us to make and share the stories people will be telling hundreds of years from now, in the same way that tales like Cinderella have gone on and on — making you a little piece of history...!
Snail Tales gratefully acknowledge the support of the Worcestershire-based theatre in providing us with rooms for rehearsing and building our set. They've been fantastic!
