Early Years Music Theatre

Spring 2018

Wonderful Beast is currently planning to revive Orla and the Sun along with Orla’s Moon , both magical shows for 0-3 years in May 2018. The need is such that we feel compelled to continue to provide families, babies and toddlers with a rich live performance experience which so many are craving and can’t get enough of. The purpose is for parents, carers and the children to share in a transformative experience through accessible, beautiful and creative ways inspired by the performance. They will be offered a CD of the music from both shows that they can sing along to in the car and at home.


“It's absolutely amazing! We've listened to the CD 4 times since we saw the performance yesterday - she just loves the beautiful sounds and voices!”



Storm of Stories

12 - 14 October 2018

Wonderful Beast’s 4th arts festival of theatre, music, fairy tales and stories in a feast of shape - shifting  delights is currently being programmed.


A highlight will be a new music theatre production featuring She’koyokh, the internationally acclaimed Klezmer and Balkan band,  local schools,  Aldeburgh Young Musician students from Snape Maltings,  the Wonderful Beast Singers (last seen in the Return of the Wildman tour this autumn) and a professional cast of actors. The production will be inspired by ‘Sharing Our Stories’ a project with young people from mainly Eastern Europe, working locally in the hospitality industry. School children will learn dances and songs from such countries as Hungary and Romania, and professional actors will animate folk and fairy tales that resonate with the poignant and exciting themes of leaving home, seeking ones fortune and adventure.
