  • Milton Jones in Milton: Impossible – Warm Up Show

    14 October 2019 8:00pm

    One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really.

    Milton reveals the truth about being an international spy, before being given a disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock the Week and Live at the Apollo.

    But this is also a love story with the twist, or at least a really bad sprain.

    Just gloriously daft nonsense or is there a deeper meaning? Every man has his price. Sainsburys, where good food costs less.

    “He’s fast, absurd and very Funny”  Radio Times

    “No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride”  The Guardian

  • Up, Up and Away

    23 October 2019 1:30pm – 7:00pm

    Written by Mark Worth

    Dramaturg- Nikky Smedley, How to Speak Child Productions

    Director- Sarah Worth

    Up, Up and Away for audiences of children and their families.  

    Jo is mis-understood… by nearly everyone, friends (if he had any), teachers, even mum and dad… Everyone keeps telling Jo that he is just… ‘different’… that he doesn’t fit in. So, when a mysterious red balloon floats by, Jo is given the chance to fly away into the sky above and he doesn’t think twice about going.

    Once in the clouds, Jo meets a host of colourful, strange and intriguing characters, who are the most ‘different’ kind of people he’s ever met. Together they embark on a cloud hopping, star jumping, stratospheric adventure and teach Jo that sometimes being ‘different’ is the best thing in the world.

    Like so many children with special educational needs, Jo struggles to find a place for himself in everyday life. Exploring communication, social interaction and feelings of isolation, Up, Up and Away is a story for all children who perceive the world though their own frame.

    “Leaving every child feeling treasured and with a beautiful moral to the story, it will awaken the magic in everyone.”  ★★★★★ The Reviews Hub

    Using a mix of inspiring movement focused theatre, aerial dance and innovative design, the performance is an engaging experience for audiences, with exciting interactive elements.

    The performance draws on Highly Sprung’s extensive experience of working with children, using movement and drama to engage audiences in more immersive, creative experiences. Up, Up and Away is designed to engage children through a positive, engaging and high quality ‘first’ arts experience, that promotes the joy of the arts.

    Up, Up and Away creates a sense of magic, beauty and intrigue for the children who see it. They associate with the story of Jo, who doesn’t fit in, who is different. Through Jo’s journey ‘into the clouds and down again’ children learn how to celebrate each person’s individuality, uniqueness and diversity.
