Mumblecrust Theatre, The Tale of The Cockatrice
On Wednesday 6th November, 3:45pm
FREE after school show at St Paul's school
Deep in the vaults of an ancient priory a hideous creature awakens. A deadly cockatrice is born! Bold knights flee in terror… Can a humble nun defeat the beast?
Award-Winning Mumblecrust Theatre present two muddle-headed storytellers, an obscure British legend, breathtaking puppetry and spine-tingling live music in this dark and winding fable for monster-lovers young and old. The Tale of the Cockatrice is based on a legend from British Folklore. Combining myth and history, sophisticated puppetry, object theatre and live original music in a dramatic tale aimed at ages 7-11 years.
