We're running a competition to celebrate Monday's Child's part in the Yorkshire Festival! We have two family tickets to give away (for a family of 4) one for our Leeds leg of the tour at The Howard Assembly Rooms for the performance on Saturday 24th May at 11am and one for our Cambridge leg at The Mumford Theatre, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, on Wednesday 30th of May for either the 11.30 or 2.30 performances.

Monday’s Child in rehearsal
Everyone was 'fair of face' last Monday when 'Monday's Child' went into production at York Theatre Royal!
Cast members Josie Cerise and Erika Poole with Stage Manager Joanne Davies were joined by writer Brendan Murray in York, where they'll be in rehearsal until the show opens on the Wednesday 9th of April. Brendan said writing the play had, 'taken its time…Still here it is – the result of a lot of reading and talking and sharing ideas – the story of two people, discovering and remembering with (thankfully) lots of room for music and movement.' Full tour details can be found here
Monday's Child is part of the Peloton programme for the Yorkshire Festival which runs from 27 March – 6 July 2014. As the first cultural programme to accompany the Tour de France in its 111 year history, we are proud to have been chosen as one of 47 companies, role on Thursday's launch!

tutti frutti and the Yorkshire Festival
It promises to be a very exciting 2014 here at tutti frutti, so we wanted to share our news!
2014 seems to be the year of travel with two international tours and a visit to Poland for the Assitej World Congress of Children's Theatre. As we speak The Boy Who Cried Wolf is in Hong Kong and Singapore as part of KidsFest2014 – a month-long festival of world-class theatre for young people. Then in April Rapunzel heads for Warsaw in Poland where we will be performing as part of the Assitej World Congress of Children’s Theatre 2014. The Congress is the biggest and most important meeting for children's theatre practioners internationally and is held every three years. As the only UK company performing, we are incredibly honoured and excited to have been selected. Rapunzel will travel from Assitej to Hong Kong to perform in May as part of an ongoing programme throughout the year of children's theatre.
Back in the UK our Spring production Monday’s Child written by Brendan Murray has been chosen as part of the Peloton programme for the Yorkshire Festival! We're delighted to be part of what promises to be an amazing cultural festival which runs from 27 April – 6 July 2014. As the first cultural programme to accompany the Tour de France in its 111 year history, we are proud to have been chosen as one of 47 companies and had great fun at the launch yesterday hearing some of the plans for the next few months. Monday's Child will open on 9 April before running at York Theatre Royal on Tuesday 22 April and then touring until June 2014.
To complete a fantastic, and busy, year we will be collaborating with York Theatre Royal to produce the biennial Little Feet Festival of Children's Theatre running from 10 – 14 June 2014 and presenting the best work available for children age 0-12 and their families. And finally … our Autumn tour will be Princess and the Pea, written by Mike Kenny (more details coming very soon but do get in touch if you would like to book!)
All in all a lively and exciting year ahead!
