Children’s theatre and story telling combine for an afternoon performance of The Fire Catcher at Henhayes Centre on Saturday October 19th, beginning at 2 pm. The fast and fun packed family show, performed by professional actors Angela Laverick and David Reakes of Tor Theatre, boasts “bags of opportunities for the audience to howl along to.” Presented by Take Art, it is suitable for children three plus and upwards accompanied by an adult. Star character Coyote is fast, fearless, cunning and kind. There are two things she doesn’t like – being cold and narrators, because they’re a “bit y’know boring.” Coyote decides to steal fire and give it to the world but imagine her surprise when she finds a narrator telling her story. Tickets cost £6 per adult and £4 per child and are available by phoning 07967301747 or visiting www.wegottickets.com
