A wonderful family production is running at Bristol Old Vic this festive seasonPosted on: 08 Dec 2023
Opening last week at The Weston Studio, Four Seasons is a theatrical love letter to nature aimed at children and their families.
Four Seasons runs at Bristol Old Vic’s The Weston Studio until Sunday 7 January 2024.
From the Olivier Award-winning team behind Hibernation, CBEEBIES’ The Nutcracker, this is an enchanting and innovative theatre piece featuring theatre ensemble Little Bulb’s signature brand of puppetry, dance and clowning fun.
The story begins in Winter with frost crunching underfoot, icy winds blowing and snow falling softly all around. Much of the natural world appears to be asleep, but somewhere, preparations for something truly magical are underway.
Join an intrepid team of magical gardeners as they tend to the marvellous menagerie of flora and fauna at each and every stage of nature’s miraculous journey. Four Seasons is a magical celebration and the wonder and weirdness of nature and human’s place within it, all set to an exciting score of seasonally inspired tracks including – of course – Vivaldi’s iconic piece.
This isn’t the only festive piece planned for the festive period at Bristol Old Vic; running until Saturday 6 November, Arabian Nights is an exciting retelling of the classic tale featuring a daring heroine, captivating songs and a timeless story of wonder and hope. Find out more here.
Four Seasons runs at Bristol Old Vic’s The Weston Studio until Sunday 7 January 2024 with tickets available for £8 for children, £10 for adults and £8.50 for groups of 6+. The age recommendation for the show is 3 and above – secure your tickets, HERE.
