Shiny -Magical Children’s Theatre for the under 4’s!

What’s in the bag? What’s that peeping out? Can you look inside and find out? It looks very bright and magical and shiny…

Join dancers from Turned on its Head for their new interactive show for children aged under four years at The Atkinson on Saturday 29 June.

Watch with amazement as all that glitters, shines and sparkles unfolds before your very eyes. Shiny is a new piece of dance theatre for children under 4 and their parents/carers. It’s the beginning of a new show by the brilliant Liz Clark and Oksana Tyminska of Turned On its Head and we invite you and your children into a world where they can explore, dance, go on an imaginary journey or just be their unique selves.

Shiny from Turned On Its Head is a world where children can explore, dance and discover all that glitters, shines and sparkles. Set in the 1940’s their journey takes us from a dusty cinema storeroom to the dazzling world of the movie stars… to a place where everything shines and sparkles. Watch with amazement as all that glitters unfolds before your very eyes.

Emma Lloyd, Performing Arts, Marketing & Visitor Services Manager said: “This is our first show for really young children. It is best suitable for babies and children up to 4 years of age and it is a truly magical hour for the audience.

It is important that young children have the opportunity to access this type of event as it truly engages with their imaginations. It can be a really moving experience for the parents too. We are delighted to have it at The Atkinson as it represents the level of quality and artistic vision we have for future children’s theatre.”
