Half Moon Theatre has teamed up with Rose Bruford College for a third year running to create a new children’s show about growing up in 2014.
Colour, which is suitable for children aged between seven and 11-years-old, will play at the Half Moon Theatre for a week of performances from 5 to 11 March.
Featuring a 12-strong cast of second year acting students at the Sidcup college, Colour will explore the lives of young people as they navigate the colourful spectrum and grey areas of family and friendship.
Half Moon’s Director Chris Elwell, who will direct the forthcoming production, promises that the show will be “both entertaining and stimulating” as it takes audiences through a series of stories using live music.
Before Colour’s run next month, pupils at Arnhem Wharf Primary School will help develop the show. Students from Rose Bruford College will visit the year 5 class at the Tower Hamlets school to explore the idea of emotions being linked to different colours.
The upcoming production of Colour follows 2012’s Scrub A Dub and last year’s Dig And Delve, which were both created in collaboration with Rose Bruford College and Arnhem Wharf Primary School.
