About the event
Join two very different characters on a messy movement adventure to discover why it’s important to help things grow. Wilhelmina (Will) loves to grow things but doesn’t quite know how. She’s willing to do anything to make sure her plants are safe and happy. Wendy (When) just doesn’t have the time to help. She is impatient and finds the garden dull and boring.
Will and When need the support of the audience to make sure they can make their garden grow, and so they can learn to appreciate their environment. With an original sound score, dazzling dance and old fashioned humour the audience will enjoy a fun and lively interactive performance.
Two extremely large plant pots – with trampettes hidden in each – will set the scene, surrounded by a dainty picket fence and colourful flower beds. The young audiences will be led down the sensory garden path (which will have different outdoor textures to feel under their feet as they enter the garden). Once in, they will sit on the spongey grass and be greeted by Will and When to help this non-verbal story unfold.
From tap-dancing-wellie-boots to umbrellas with holes in, this dancing duo will have the audience splashing, planting, giggling and dancing throughout the show. And at the end of the performance each young audience member will take away a sunflower seed and a special thank-you note from Will and When, so they too can learn how to grow things back home.
The age range is for 3-7 years but other family members will enjoy the performance too. Running time is likely to be about 30 minutes with audience interaction at the end.
