Arts: Winning band coming to town
Apr 10 2009 Huddersfield Daily Examiner
COMICAL characters Frank and Daphne bring their mysterious market stall to the Lawrence Batley Theatre next weekend.
So what do they stock on this stall like no other? Tall tales from around the world created by using bric-a-brac, costumes and musical instruments.
See for yourself in this family show pitched at four to eight year olds and grown-ups with lots of imagination.
Tale Traders – Magic Story Stall is brought to the LBT on April 18 courtesy of Slaithwaite-based Satellite Arts.
Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and magician Andy Burton plays Frank while singer, puppeteer and trombonist Gill Bond, is Daphne.
Together they use conjuring, puppetry, live music and songs to create a story about a cheeky chicken who wants to meet the Queen of Spain and a comic caper about a king with very smelly feet.
All you need to join them is a touch of imagination – and a ticket. Performances are at 11am and 2pm. Box office is on 01484 430528.
