Image Theatre for Years 1 – 6 ‘The Selfish Giant’
3rd May | 1:00 pm - 3:15 pm
Oscar Wilde’s short story was magically brought to life by Image Musical Theatre. It was a beautiful and moving tale of a giant’s selfish ways, culminating in a moment of realisation and his final redemption. The show was a wonderful tool to remind all of the audience of the importance of kindness and generosity. The cast of young professional actors were full of energy and their enthusiasm was thoroughly appreciated by the children.
The show required the participation of the whole audience as the chorus who were taught several songs with actions. An additional ten children were selected by the actors to play small parts throughout the show.
With realistic costumes, amazing puppetry, an ingenious set and mesmerising music by Robert Hyman this production was thoroughly enjoyed by all the children in Reception – Year 6 and we look forward to welcoming the company back again next year.
