Arad Goch, the theatre that creates exciting and relevant performances for children and young people visits the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven on Wednesday, 5 July with its bilingual interactive show of Do I Have To Wake Up/ Oes Rhaid I Mi Ddeffro?
With music, dance, flying, dreams, a magical world where socks turn into breakfast… and a lot of fun, the show is ideally suited for children age two to eight years and their families and is a feast for the imagination!
During the performance the audience gets a chance to build their own pictures, dreams and stories where the stage is an enormous imaginative bed, decorated with a lot of material, cushions and bedding. The production touches on themes such as sharing, creating and friends and is a treat to behold by mixing the contemporary choreography of Eddie Ladd (from near Cardigan) with traditional Welsh music from the 18th century.
Do I Have To Wake Up? toured around a few of Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire’s schools back in January 2016. It was a short tour, and since then the production has been performed in festivals in Europe and was recently nominated for the award of Best Production for Children and Young People at the Wales Theatre Awards.
Arad Goch visited Roch School in Pembrokeshire and the children thoroughly enjoyed the performance:
“Every child was engaged, involved and enthused! In the technology driven world we now live in it was lovely to go back and be reminded of using imagination and being creative! The way the children’s faces lit up when socks turned into food, sheets turned into snakes and the ‘surprise’ of people hiding under the sheets was just wonderful to see! Thank you again! Look forward to the next one!” said a spokesperson on behalf of Roch School.
Do I Have To Wake Up will be performed on Wednesday, 5 July at 11am in Welsh and at 1.30pm in English / bilingual). Tickets are £5.
