What’s on in Stratford: The Spiderwick Chronicles at the Bear Pit Theatre
STRATFORD Youth Theatre (SYT) are performing the very first stage adaptation of The Spiderwick Chronicles at the Bear Pit Theatre later this month.
With over 1.5 million copies in print in the UK alone, the book by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black has been beloved by kids and their parents for more than 20 years.
A group of young people from SYT have been meeting to rehearse every weekend since Christmas in preparation for this show. They have been busy learning lines, puppetry and stage combat, not to mention how to act like goblins and elves. The cast of 20 will bring the Spiderwick characters to life to create a magical show that will leave the audience spellbound.
“We are delighted to adapt the very first production of The Spiderwick Chronicles and very grateful to Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black for trusting us with this amazing project and to share it with audiences in our home town of Stratford-upon-Avon” said Sarah Plowright, founder and director of SYT.
The project is supported by a grant from Stratford Town Trust. The show runs from 14th to 17th February. Early booking is recommended via the Bear Pit website: www.thebearpit.org.uk
