Under the Parasol

5th Jul 2010 to 30th Jul 2010

Thanks to funding received from Find Your Talent, we are delighted to be able to remount Under the Parasol – a performed reading of Hue Boy by Rita Phillips Mitchell (30 mins) and associated workshop (1 hour). The tour encompasses Morley Schools and a couple of free public performances – Harehills Festival, Morley Library and Rothwell Library.

Be transported to a Caribbean village through this heart-warming storytelling performance.  tutti frutti’s most experienced performer Stewart Thomas will bring to life the Smarties prize winning book Hue Boy to children aged 4-7.

Hue Boy may be the smallest boy in his village but he is big news.
Pumpkin soup and exercise… just some of the suggestions to make him grow.

Set in a beautiful environment, the children will be invited to sit in the story telling zone and enjoy this unique interactive experience.
