Prokofiev, Peter and the perfect puppets

Peter & The Wolf
Peter & The Wolf

THEATRE 4 Kids presents Peter & The Wolf at Stantonbury Campus this Saturday afternoon.

Audience members will travel with Rob and his suitcase full of surprises as they delve into deepest, darkest Russia and to the house in the woods...and you know who lives there: the big (and very hungry) Wolf!

Prokofiev’s wonderful tale of courage and compassion introduces you to young Peter and his Grandfather, the supercilious cat, the silly duck (who is a little bit quackers!), quick witted Redbird, Ivan and Boris the blundering hunters, and the aforementioned Wolf.

This show is bursting at those suitcase seams with creative puppets, terrific storytelling and an altogether famous score.

‘A little bit of magic for all the family and the perfect way to begin the exciting build up to Christmas day,’ say those behind the event, and really, we’d be hard pushed to disagree.

The energetic, fun adaptation is being played out by Sea Legs Puppet Theatre, and will go live at 2.30pm.

The show lasts for 45 minutes, with a further quarter of an hour for enchanted children to meet the puppets.

Peter & The Wolf is suitable for little mites aged three years old and up.

Tickets are £5.50 for children under 12 years, £8 for adults, or take a family ticket for £23.

To book your seats, or for further information call MK 324422.

> On Sunday the James Goff Big Band hosts its annual concert at Stantonbury.
The show, which again features the vocals of Jeannie Dee, will be brimming with familiar melodies and seasonal songs, and as all proceeds from the concert, in association with the MK Stony Stratford Lions Club are given to help local charities, you get double the amount of feelgood factor.

Tickets are £12 and £10, or plump for a pit seat for £6.
