Details of the season have been unveiled, with the theatre preparing to turn 60 in November.
On the 24th November, the Little Angel Theatre will turn 60 years old and it has now confirmed details of its upcoming season, which will see the theatre marking the occasion.
The upcoming season is set to include a production of There’s a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom and Other Stories which will play at the theatre from the 10th October until the 7th November. The show was inspired by the Greenpeace campaign films There’s a Rang-Tan in My Bedroom and There’s a Monster in My Kitchen created by Mother and written by James Sellick.
Meanwhile, from the 13th November until the 23rd January, the theatre will present There May be a Castle which is based on the book by Piers Torday. It is a story of about love, loss and the power of the imagination and follows the story of Mouse Mallory, who embarks on a magical adventure.
Elsewhere at Little Angel Studios from the 9th to the 26th September, The Wishing Tree is inspired by Joseph Coelho poem, incorporating ideas from local Islington school children coming out of the pandemic and highlights the importance of friendship and helping those in need.
This will then be followed by The Storm Whale which will play at the Little Angel Studios from the 20th November until the 30th January. Based on the books by Benji Davies, the story follows that of Noi who rescues a whale that washed up on the beach during a storm.
Talking about the news Samantha Lane and Peta Swindall said: “As we emerge from the pandemic and welcome live audiences back to Little Angel Theatre after such a challenging time, we are proud to announce a live/digital hybrid season of bold and ambitious new work including two major new shows that don’t shy away from big issues. ‘There’s a Rang-Tan in my Bedroom and Other Stories’ is a beautiful new show featuring a voiceover by Emma Thompson, and supporting Greenpeace and Meat Free Monday, that introduces children to the idea that no-one is too small to make a difference. There will also be accompanying digital content for those who are unable to
make it to the theatre in person, or who would like to explore the issues raised in the show around sustainability and climate change in more depth. A new adaptation of Piers Torday’s remarkable novel ‘There May be a Castle’ willenchant audiences over Christmas with its magical world of monsters, knights and wizards. While running in Little Angel Studios is Benji Davies’ tender and heart-warming tale ‘The Storm Whale’, a co-production with York Theatre Royal, The Marlowe Theatre and Engine House.”
