The Last Woodwose @ Aldeburgh Jubilee Hall

Storm of Stories 2019
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 autumn 2017) 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.
