Fish And Game
Live Art and Theatre for children and others
by Eilidh MacAskill and her collaborators
We’re very excited to be presenting our show, How To Be A Christmas Tree at the Macrobert Arts Centre near Stirling this festive season. We first created this show for under 5s at Cumbernauld Theatre last year, so it’s great to have the chance to bring it back for a new audience.
The show was devised by the creative team including performers Becki Gerrard and Fiona Manson, composer Greg Sinclair, designer Claire Halleran and lighting designer Kate Bonney.
This year we welcome two new Trees, Michael Dylan and Kirstin McLean and we can’t wait to share it with the macrobert audiences. Macrobert commissioned us to create The Polar Bears Go Wild! as their early years Christmas show in 2012, so it’s wonderful to be back in the Playhouse.
Tickets are selling fast, but you can still snap some up here: Macrobert Arts Centre
We’re very pleased that our latest children’s show, The Polar Bears Go Up!, has been selected to be part of the IPAY International Showcase event in Madison, Winsconsin in January 2017. Our trip is being supported by Creative Scotland and we hope that this trip will lead to further international touring, particularly in North America.
To enable this, we’re also very excited that we are now being represented by Kid’s Entertainment in North America. Please contact Cheryle Henson on firstname.lastname@example.org in you’re in the US or Sarah Gray on email@example.com for elsewhere.
We’re also looking to tour in the UK next spring, so it’s all go for the Polar Bears!
Our Polar Bears had a great two weeks at the lovely Unicorn Theatre. We were very well supported and had some lovely audiences, most of which were sold out. And we’ve had some great 4-star reviews too:
★★★★ ‘Charm, wit and a sense of wonder’ The Stage
★★★★ ‘Concise and engaging enough to keep the whole audience engrossed’ The Upcoming
★★★★ ‘A sense of joyful discovery runs throughout this delightful piece’ The Londonist
Now they’re heading back up North for a tour that takes in Perth, Aberdeen, Easterhouse, Falkirk, Cumbernauld, Dunfermline, Belfast and Edinburgh! Full tour details are on our Polar Bear page.
And here’s some lovely production shots to whet your appetite! Images by Richard Davenport taken at Unicorn Theatre, London.
We’re very excited to be in week two of rehearsals for our new show, The Polar Bears Go Up! It’s a co-production between Fish And Game and the outstanding Unicorn Theatre in London where we had a great three-week run last year with The Polar Bears Go Wild!
We open on the 17th of April at the Unicorn and after two weeks come back up to Scotland for to tour in May and June.
Details of the tour are available on our Polar Bear Page HERE
In the meantime, here’s some pictures we took of the bears’ balloon having a jaunt around London last year in our R&D time…
