Book, music and lyrics by David Wood, directed by Linda Swann
Whilst the 'Big Ones' are asleep plenty of activity takes place on the kitchen dresser. The cuckoo clock has lost his voice and could be threatened with the dustbin in the morning. The efforts of the gingerbread man, salt cellar and pepper mill to help him regain his voice involve a confrontation with the Old Tea Bag. However, danger threatens in the guise of a voracious mouse and, surprisingly enough, the 'Big Ones'.
Join us for this musical play for all the family and see what really happens when we are asleep!
Profits from the first night's show will go to the Devizes Mayoral Appeal for local charities
To all members and supporters of the Wharf Theatre:
The Theatre is run entirely by volunteers and, if you don't fancy acting on stage, there are always lots of opportunities for you to help out with vital and rewarding responsibilities off the stage, both behind the scenes and in the Front of House. Each performance requires normally around eleven volunteers to help run the box office, bar and refreshments, manage the stage, props and actors, run the lighting and sound effects required and carry out the essential duties of perfomance licencee. In addition, there are numerous opportunites to help design, build and decorate sets, as well as to compose publicity material and help with the distribution and management of publicity material (including the content of this website).
If you enjoy theatre but do not want to appear on stage, why not double your enjoyment by joining one of our off-stage teams to help provide critical supporting skills that the Theatre needs. Training is provided for these responsibilities, and you will not only meet similarly enthusiastic people but also become a valuable part of the Theatre family.
You do not need to be a member to come and have a look and to try out these tasks, although if you wish to pursue technical and back-stage work for productions you will ultimately require membership. To find out more, please e-mail the Chairman or any of the Management team via the Contacts page.
