Leading health organisations agree that theatre is good for mental and physical wellbeing – especially for children and young people. Which is why the new theatre season at The Garage in Norwich is packed with family shows.
Globe-trotting comedy magician and Bestival favourite Seska will be Cooking Up Fun for ages two-plus. Choogh Choogh is a dance, theatre, and play fueled train trip through India.
Olivier Award-winning Little Bulb celebrates the wonder and weirdness of nature in Four Seasons. Hermit is an interactive show about the importance of home told by a very tall man who lives in a teeny-weeny house. Comedy gameshow Wi-Fi Wars returns too.
Adam Taylor is The Garage Trust’s CEO, he said: “These are really high-quality, joyful, shows using innovative staging and performance techniques to captivate audiences. Some are educational in the best sense, dealing with important issues like climate change and cultural diversity.
“There’s plenty more joy in the season with comedy, drama for adults, and chances to see performances by our young class participants. We can’t wait to once again host NT Connections, bringing together hundreds of East Anglia’s young theatre-makers staging work by the country’s newest playwriting talent.”
Laughs for adults come from stars of The Comedy Network including Dana Alexandra, Danny Clives, Morgan Rees, Pierre Novellie, Heidi Regan, Justin Panks, Travis Jay and others. Ed Night visits with his debut tour. Steve Bugeja, Red Richardson and Carl Hutchinson return with new shows too.
Theatre includes On Track, about how a simple bicycle becomes one woman’s vehicle to freedom during lockdown. It’s back to school with singing teacher James Partridge for a trip down memory lane nineties style in Primary School Assembly Bangers Live!
