Orla Tour: 8 - 25 May 2018


Orla's Moon -  Step into an enchanting moonlit world and join orla's night time adventure with her faithful dog, Silver, leading the way.


Orla and The Sun - Orla wants to know why the sun keeps following her. She sings and dances with the sun to find the answer, and together they create an immersive paradise of silken sun-rays, a forest, bees and a silver pond.


We are delighted to have joined forces with Suffolk Library service and Creative Futures to bring this tour to you.


We are grateful to Arts Council England, the Lowestoft Cultural Education Partnership, Fitton Trust and all our Crowd Funder donators for their generous support.

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.
