13- 21 June Orla's Moon for families, babies and infants...
Orla's Moon is a new immersive music theatre production for 0-3 years and their carers on tour this June. It's composed, written and directed by the same team that brought you Orla and the Sun in 2015- 2016.
Step into a beautiful moonlit world of dappled light, shimmering stars and tinkling bells and join us on Orla’s night adventure with her faithful dog, Silver, leading the way. Our welcoming cast will tell an enchanting story through song, dance and sensory props, inviting children to interact and immerse themselves in the joy of play.

Sharing Our Stories – in development
This pilot project involves mainly Eastern Europeans working in local hotels and restaurants in Aldeburgh and Thorpeness, who have been telling a group of Wonderful Beast volunteers their stories in informal gatherings over food and wine. We have recorded some amazing tales and had tremendous fun. The aim is two-fold, to extend a welcoming hand to the foreign workers into our community, and to explore ways of co-creating a new piece of theatre inspired by their personal stories and fairy tales.
A very positive outcome of these meetings is that a volunteer from Wonderful Beast has offered to give free weekly English lessons to hotel staff keen to improve their language skills. This is a fruitful partnership that has been developed with the hotels training and management team.
Thanks to Thorpeness and Aldeburgh Hotels for their tremendous support and hospitality
