Watermans Christmas show The Little Red Hen
21st Century Chicken uses her Loaf!
A chainsaw wielding chicken is the star of a fabulously updated traditional nursery tale for Watermans’ Christmas Show this year for children aged 3-7 years and their parents.
LITTLE RED HEN is the hit family friendly puppet show from Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company performed by Helen Day and Adam Fuller and directed by Marc Parrett.
Featuring a Pig with an IPod, a Rat with a mobile phone and a lazy Cow with a fake tan, the star is a hardworking Red Hen who wants to make her own bread but can’t get anyone to help her. Cutting the corn is a particularly big task for such a small bird and she has to use a variety of amazing tools, including a pair of garden shears and a crazy puppet chainsaw to achieve her goal.
The hugely loveable puppets are created and directed by puppet maestro Marc Parrett who has worked with Bristol Old Vic, Aardman Animations and The RSC. Stuff and Nonsense theatre company has teamed up with leading early-years performance expert Niki McCretton to create an enormously entertaining show featuring live music, ingenious puppets and a fantastically eccentric threshing machine. The show also uses simple British Sign Language.
THE LITTLE RED HEN is a co-production with support from Halton Borough Council and The Brew house Theatre & Arts centre for 2010 restaging. Previous tour funding from Arts Council England.
