Students from Exeter House perform new play at Salisbury Playhouse
Students from Exeter House School will perform From Little Acorns... which has been inspired by their ideas about nature, in The Salberg at Salisbury Playhouse on Tuesday 7 March.
The students are part of the Exeter House branch of Salisbury Playhouse’s Stage 65 Youth Theatre and meet weekly for drama workshops with Youth Theatre Director Dave Orme.
For this performance they have been collaborating with Treecreeper Theatre CIC, a Hampshire-based theatre company that specialises in community based theatre projects.
This production has been inspired by nature and, using puppetry and movement sequences, journeys through the seasons.
“It’s hard to believe that something so small can achieve such great things and influence so many others… for from little acorns do big oak trees grow.”
Alongside the performance there will also be an exhibition of artwork created by students from Exeter House displayed in the Salisbury Playhouse foyer.
Salisbury Playhouse’s Youth Theatre Director, Dave Orme, says “This is a really fantastic example of the work Exeter House School does with young people and a testament to the talent of the students. We are delighted to be working with them and Treecreeper Theatre who have a great track record of working with a variety of different community groups.”
This production has been generously supported by The D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust. The performance will take place on Tuesday 7 March at 7pm and tickets are available from the Salisbury Playhouse Ticket Office on 01722 320333 or via the show page.
