Sandgrown Tails is a collection of familiar stories retold in unfamiliar ways by our Community Theatre Company; Th’ESPs.
A place where mermaids, whales and man-eating lions get washed up.
This piece of theatre features an ensemble cast of 16 local players who, through poetry, puppetry and storytelling, retell a selection of well-known tales in surprising, funny and memorable ways.
The show lasts around 70-minutes and is suitable for families with children over 7 years old.
“We flock like pilgrims
To the jewel of the North
On the road to Mecca Bingo
Our numbers spew forth”
At it’s core, Th’ESP’s is a relaxed, supportive environment for acting, movement, masks, puppetry, script work and games where everyone is given the opportunity to get involved, contribute ideas, and (most importantly) have fun.
Th’ESP’s and Sandgrown Tails has been funded by the Big Lottery Fund, we are grateful for their support and that of the creative community in Blackpool for their contributions to this project.
