Jack and the Beans Talk

Smallhythe, Tenterden, TN30 7NG
Performance by Garlic Theatre (Individual)
15:30 - 16:30
May 2020

Was it a dream or did I hear a talking bean?

Jack lives on a small farm with his mum and very little to eat. He likes to talk to the birds, his cow and anyone who will listen. Imagine his surprise when he swops his cow for some magic beans and starts to hear a whispering in the breeze and a giant rumble in the sky...

Charming and inventive with plenty of interaction, an enormous beanstalk, bags of gold and a smelly old giant. Jack and the Beans Talk is a cautionary tale about what might happen if you throw things out of the window!

From the company that brought you Shoe Kangaroo and the Big Bad Boot, Billy Goats Gruff and There's A Monster in My Piano.

A fresh and funny retelling of the traditional story and an ideal gentle introduction to theatre. For ages 3-7

Adult: £12.00 | Child: £9.50

A Midsummer Night's Dream (Open-air)

Smallhythe, Tenterden, TN30 7NG
Performance by Changeling Theatre Company (Group)
18:30 - 20:30
Jul 2020

“The course of true love never did run smooth”
On Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves in an enchanted and mysterious forest, ruled by prying pixies and feuding fairies. The Fairy King and Queen are at war and keen but clueless amateur actors Bottom, Quince and friends are putting on a play. Mischievous fairy Puck is up to no good, playing tricks on them all in a magical comic tale where the course of true love is well and truly scuppered…

Think gothic fantasy meets RuPaul‘s Drag Race,  A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be another unmissable Changeling production. A funny, fantastical feast for the senses that will delight all ages.

Adult: £16.00 | Child: £10.00
