St Ives Community Play - Make and Create

St Ives Community Play - Make and Create for Children

This year’s St Ives Community Play is The Merry Wives of Windsor. Rough Coast Community Arts is producing the play and they are looking for fairies and little devils for the closing scene.

In preparation, they’ll be hosting a ‘Make and Create’ afternoon and inviting children aged 5 to 11 to participate on  Sunday 6th May, from 2.00 pm to 3.30 pm.

The afternoon will be run by artists from the local area. Children will leave with an item of costume that they create in the workshop – a scary little devil mask or a pair of fairy wings.

Local children’s author Liz Kessler will also be at the workshop to present a child friendly version of the story she has written, leaving out Shakespeare’s bawdy bits!

Attending the workshop doesn’t mean that children have to be in the play, but the Rough Coast team hope they will want to get involved and make good use of their costumes!

The Merry Wives of Windsor is an outdoor production that will play on The Island St Ives in August and September 2012.  Director Sarah Lincoln said: “Children won’t need to commit to all of the eight shows, but we hope they’ll have so much fun they’ll want to take part in a few!

So if parents have any little devils or fairies in their household who’d like to join in please contact Rough Coast on 07861 718 652.

Or just turn up to the Make and Create session at the Island Centre. Rough Coast is asking for a £2.00 donation per child just to cover the cost of materials.
