Following a sell-out run at The REP last year, Knees & Toes Theatre are delighted to give young audiences another chance to see their enchanting production Mr Silly Pancake & the Land of Cake & Biscuits as it comes to Midlands Arts Centre on 26th & 27th May 2018.
Mr Silly Pancake has a dream. He longs to be the first pancake on the moon. But to get there, he needs help from children with big ideas and big imaginations… With original music, puppetry and a stunning set, this interactive show will transport young audiences to the Land of Cake and Biscuits, where everything is edible, yet mustn’t be eaten, where we meet Mr Silly Pancake, the Gingerbread man & a daredevil custard cream. Intimate audiences will navigate the tactile set, visiting Jelly Fields, Marshmallow Castle & Milkshake River, before helping Mr Silly Pancake overcome his problems and become the first pancake in space.
Written & performed by Toni Midlane and directed by Peter Wynne-Willson, Mr Silly Pancake is an engaging production full of music and movement, bubbles and play, which promises a magical first theatre experience for under 6’s. Toni Midlane, said: “After many years of running Toni’s Tots Drama workshops for pre-school children I was inspired by the brilliant ideas the children came up with and wanted to develop some of their imagined adventures into a full production.
The development of the show was an amazing process; working with a talented team of artists as well as numerous young collaborators at Ladywood Children’s Centres. The production has been a huge hit with young children and their families and I look forward to welcoming more audiences into the Land of Cake & Biscuits later this month... But remember: Don’t Eat Anything!” Performances are at 11am, 2pm & 4pm on Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th May 2018 at Midlands Arts Centre, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, B12 9QH. Tickets: £9.50/ £7.50.
