Lincoln Performing Arts Centre is such an inspiring place for children to visit, especially if it is their first experience of theatre.
And it’s not just in the theatre itself that the magic happens; at this year’s POP OUT Festival, taking place 11th September to 1st October, family shows and urban arts activities are popping up all over the place!
In addition to the return of the much loved Roundabout by Paines Plough, POP OUT Festival 2017 will establish a new performance space inside the Waterside Shopping Centre. A vacant shop unit will be transformed into the Waterside Pop Out Theatre, with a vibrant and fun foyer full of activities for families and a small studio space, which will host professional performances from UK touring companies alongside special community events.
Lincoln Performing Arts Centre has a well-established reputation for bringing big names and top quality family theatre entertainment to the region and this season is no exception. From the producers of The Hairy Maclary Show, join Timothy and his Elvis loving Dad on their adventures in this fun-filled family musical based on all three of Nick Sharratt’s award-winning Shark in the Park books. When Timothy Pope receives a brand new telescope for his birthday, boy is he excited to test it out at the park! But wait...is that really a shark he can see?
Given that 2017 celebrates 800 years since the Charter of the Forest, what better story to tell this Christmas than that of The Adventures of Robin Hood and Maid Marian: Winter in Sherwood!
The in-house production sees this familiar tale masterfully reimagined in a snow-covered forest, alive with magic and adventure. The boy-king Henry III rules an England in civil war and the Sheriff of Nottingham sees his chance to seize control. The people need a hero but who will step forward and fight for them? This wintery quest is suitable for families and children aged six up.
The creative team behind last year’s sell-out winter show for younger children are bringing another heart-warming tale to life in the studio with The Winter Whale. Two friends, the adventurous Anja and her best friend Karl find themselves cast adrift on an epic journey.
Through rolling waves and frozen seas the children search for the magical Winter Whale to help guide them safely home. Due to popular demand this production will run right through the Christmas period up to New Year’s Eve.
