WHY SHOULD YOU PROGRAM THIS WORK?
The performance is an introduction to theatre for our very youngest audience members and also reminds parents and other adults of the joy of theatre. PLAY PLAY is a low tech show that can be installed and removed from a venue within 2 hours. The performances are programmed during the day leaving the venue available to be programmed during the evening.
The production is currently in further development until November 2019. After which this production will be packaged as a Buy Now with a fee for a performance week. One week includes 6 performance days at 1 venue and a maximum of 18 performances per performance week. Maximum of 3 performances per day. Small bespoke runs can be arranged.
