Magical children’s theatre at Skipton Town Hall

Fun family show Where’s My Igloo Gone? is set to delight families at Skipton Town Hall on Thursday April 26.

The play is set in the Arctic, in a dazzling, icy world of soaring snow geese and starry nights, and tells the story of a girl called Oolik, who discovers one day that her igloo home is melting, and so goes off on an adventure to find help.

On her way, she meets some exciting friends – including the audience!

Where’s My Igloo Gone? is an interactive show, where everyone gets involved - ideal for children and adults to enjoy together. It’s a hopeful tale about caring for our world and for each other.

Danielle Daglan, Programming & Venue Development Manager at Craven District Council, said: “This is an enchanting production with live music and song, and a host of engaging characters – it’s a fun, magical experience for the whole family.”

The show’s visual style also makes it accessible to deaf and hard of hearing audiences (without the need for a signer or captions) as well as non-English speakers.

This is the latest touring production from The Bone Ensemble, who have collaborated with environmental experts, Professor David Hannah from the University of Birmingham and Dr Nick Mount from the University of Nottingham, to weave scientific knowledge into a compelling narrative with dynamic interactive activities, engaging audiences with the environment and climate change in a positive, refreshing new way.

Audiences can also look forward to playing the super-sized Climate Change puzzle that uses facts and figures about how the world is changing to create a fun, learning experience for all involved before and after the show.

The performance is at 4pm on Thursday April 26, with tickets at £10 for adults and £7.50 for under-18s including a buffet tea. It is suitable for children aged five and over and tickets can be booked online at www.cravendc.gov.uk/skipton-town-hall or via the Box Office: 01756 792 809.
