WHAT happens when reams of paper collide?

Find out in a dazzling new play which will delight under fives (an d mums and dads too).

If you are looking for a half term outing for the younger members of the family, then why not consider Rip, Fold and Scrunch?

It is at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield on June 3 and features a white paper world in which three friends, Rip, Fold and Scrunch, learn all about friendship and how to play.

Ripping, folding, scrunching and using their imagination, they create a host of toys and puppets from the paper lying around them.

But in their excitement the trio rip up the white paper floor revealing a wonderful, colourful surprise!

The story is told using traditional Indian Kathak dance, drama, a cello player and of course, lots of white paper.

After the performance, the audience get their chance to rip, fold and scrunch their own paper creations.

Rip, Fold, Scrunch aims to inspire people to be creative and to remember just how much fun you can have with simple items like bits of paper.

The show is staged by Half Moon, a theatre company which specialises in creating theatre for young people.

They have more than a decade of experience in creating shows for the very young.

See one of their performances and you will be enchanted.

This new show is directed by Half Moon’s Director, Chris Elwell, the creative spirit behind many successful shows including Baa Moo Yellow Dog.

The show is in the LBT’s Cellar theatre on Friday June 3 with performances at 11.00am & 2.00pm.
