After a very tricky year, The North Wall is delighted to offer families the chance to experience the magic of live theatre again in a way that’s safe and comfortable.
Join the award-winning M6 Theatre Company as they present Little Gift, an optimistic tale of finding friendship in the most unusual places when it comes to the Summertown theatre from Dec 19 – 23.
“Little Gift is such a special play, with a message of warmth and hope that we hope will bring people a little bit of joy,” North Wall’s co-director Ria Parry says.
The North Wall auditorium has been transformed to allow for social-distancing, with each family having plenty of space to sit in separate family bubbles.
Little Gift tells the story of Ted, a lonely old soul, living all alone in the big city. One morning his life is changed forever when a mysterious helping hand steps in and disrupts his quiet routine. This playful production presents Ted’s tale with a heart-warming mix of puppetry, live music and song.
Artistic Director of M6, Gilly Baskeyfield, who created the show with Andy Manley, said it was inspired by A Christmas Carol’s idea of redemption and gifting presents.
“Giving a gift is a lovely thing for both parties. It’s a way of noticing somebody and saying ‘I remember you’,” she says.
Little Gift is performed by actor Guy Hargreaves, whom audiences love: “We knew we needed a very special actor to bring Little Gift to life and we saw a number of performers for the role. Guy’s wonderful attitude, alongside his top notch clowning, dancing and musical skills make him the perfect fit,” Gilly says.
Little Gift is recommended for ages 3-7. Tickets at the The North Wall box office on 01865 319450 or visit www.thenorthwall.com
