Expect music, magic and mayhem at Pocklington Arts Centre (PAC) this summer holidays when children’s theatre show Mr Shell’s Seaside Spells comes to town.
Brought to you by PAC favourites, Hull’s Magic Carpet Theatre Company, children aged 3-11 and their families can discover the story of Sandy Shell and Charlie who need help to save their Pier from the evil council inspector Hector Fludd.
This hilarious five-star hit show has toured to great acclaim from Rome to Galway, and now it comes to PAC on Wednesday 7 August, at 2.30pm.
PAC director Janet Farmer said: “We love having Magic Carpet Theatre at PAC because we know every show they do has our young audiences clapping, cheering and filling our auditorium with laughter! This promises to be a fun, family friendly show filled with funny stories, magic tricks, juggling, comedy and audience participation that is sure to keep children and grown-ups entertained. Our children’s theatre shows usually sell-out, I would highly recommend advance booking.”
The show draws on traditions of Victorian ‘hiss and boo’ melodrama, Punch and Judy, conjuring, illusion and slapstick.
And in true Magic Carpet Theatre style, there promises to be lots of audience participation in this colourful, exciting production, which is sure to entertain fans of comedy, magic and good old-fashioned family fun alike.
