    4 March - 10 April 2010

    Bear and Chicken are back! They are getting ready to go to a new school. But moving from their familiar school to a new one is scary. Together Bear and Chicken decide to join the Circus. Wouldn't it be fun to be the circus clown, acrobat or even the lion tamer?

    What entails is a charming discovery that not all lessons in life are learnt in a classroom and perhaps the circus isn't all fun and games after all. This play illustrates how sometimes our fears can be blown out of proportion but with a good friend at your side; you can overcome a potentially daunting situation like the first day of school. Perhaps school can even be fun!

    Bear and Chicken Get Ready for Schoolis the third of a highly successful original series that began with When I Grow Up and Bear and Chicken Go Camping. You'll get to meet the lovable Bear in his circus costumes, and Chicken who is all set for school!

    Recommended for 2-6 year-olds.

  • Blackbird

     

    Blackbird

    Presented by SRT
    DBS Arts Centre - Home of SRT
    16 Sep - 2 Oct 2010


    Former lovers Una and Ray meet face-to-face for the first time in 15 years. A chance picture in a magazine has led her back to him. But is it for answers, reconciliation or revenge?

    What follows is a tightly-plotted series of twists and turns that will have you at the edge of your seat. Wielding words like a scalpel, Harrower peels away the layers to expose the conflicting emotions that lie at the core of our human hearts.

    From the time of Adam and Eve, we have been fascinated by that which is forbidden - and nothing more so than forbidden love. Blackbird mixes guilt, desire and bitterness into a potent brew that will be unlike anything you have seen before on stage, in the tradition of Lolita, or even more recently An Education.

    Scottish playwright David Harrower has written a riveting play about a sexual relationship that transforms, paralyses and destroys the lives of both the parties involved. A modern day love story ? or is it? This gripping psychodrama makes you question the very nature of love. As with every country in which it has been performed, you will be talking about the controversy it generates for days after watching it.

    A Laurence Olivier Award winner for 'Best Play' in 2007.

    Upstairs in the Sky

    A tale about friendship, adventure and creativity

    Presented by SRT's The Little Company
    DBS Arts Centre - Home of SRT
    5 Aug - 11 Sep 2010

    Upstairs in the Sky is a story of adventure, friendship and loss. Two delivery people arrive with a box addressed to the audience - a Make-It-Yourself Story Kit! At first they can't agree on what story to tell.

    With the audiences help they take us on an imaginary journey up a tall, tall tower to a beautiful magical cloudscape. Their story of Princess Veronica and her search for grandfather King Jim is a gentle, heart-warming reassurance of family love.

    Enriching creativity through open-ended play: The show is performed with open ended play materials - boxes, cloths, tubes and household objects which the children can play with after the show. When children play with things that have no prescribed play value they stretch their imaginations and share their ideas with other children in order for the 'playing' to continue.

    Recommended for 3 - 6 year-olds.
