    Chores @ The Montgomery

    Fri 31st May at 1pm 60 minutes Presented by The Montgomery and Hoopla Clique and Cluster Arts For children aged 3+ Two excitable brothers are definitely, probably, maybe, just about to, almost, at some stage, going to do the chores their mother has asked them to do… A generous serving of comedy and chaotic acrobatics accompanies every attempt at cleaning their room and doing their chores. Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, the side-splitting duo of Chores is coming your way. With highlights of skilled stunts and uproarious, interactive gags, and with very little spoken dialogue, children and adults alike will find themselves on the edge of their seats and giggling until the chores are done. This performance is accompanied by Monty's Circus Workshop. Please note there is no disabled access at present.

    Stella @ The Montgomery

    Sat 23 March at 2pm. 60 Minutes Presented by The Montgomery and Filskit Theatre Company For children aged 3 - 6 ‘Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet’ - Stephen Hawking Stella is a Star Engineer. From her home on the Moon she keeps the stars shining bright for when we need them most, to make a wish or find our way back home. But down on Earth things are changing. The world is becoming bright, busy and people aren’t looking up. The stars are burning out and it’s up to Stella to save them - but she can’t do it alone. Using projection, playful performance and aerial circus, we want to talk about our sky and how sometimes it is important to turn out the lights and wish upon a star. Stella has been commissioned by ARC, Stockton and The Barnsley Civic. This piece has been created using research from the International Dark Sky Association and text gathered during workshops with local schools. Please note that there is no disabled access.

  6. Sat 2nd March. 11am and 2pm 50 minutes Presented by The Montgomery, Tessa Bide Productions and Soap Soup Theatre For children aged 3+ Inspired by the touching children’s story ‘The Selfish Giant’ by Oscar Wilde, Bristol's two leading family theatre experts are combining forces to explore an unusual friendship, and how even the grumpiest giant’s heart can melt when Spring finally comes. Grinter is a giant. She lives happily alone in her huge cold house, surrounded by her huge snowy gardens, enclosed by her high, frost-covered walls. She shuts out the world, because long ago, the world shut her out, and so she hides, safe and quiet in her peaceful, icy home. Outside the towering walls of her enormous garden, the world has been changing and there is very little green left. One day, the children - tired of playing on hard roads and grey rooftops - find a chink in the giant's wall and climb through, changing the course of the children’s and Grinter's lives forever. Powerful storytelling, captivating puppetry, beautiful design, enchanting music and a sprinkling of magic sums up this very special show.
