Creepy half term fun at The Epstein

THIS February half term The Epstein Theatre is presenting a fun, spooky, musical adventure for the whole family, when Crafty’s Creepy Castle comes to the stage on Saturday 10 February.

Brought to audiences by Honalee Media, help Crafty the Crow and Sally the Scarecrow solve the mystery of the castle’s ghostly goings on, hunt for the hidden treasure and find out why Pirate Harry is making things go bump in the night.

There will also be an opportunity after the show for a Meet and Greet with the cast, and every child will receive a special present from puppet star Crafty the Cow.

The team from Honalee Media have a proven track record in top quality children’s entertainment.  Marty MacDonald’s Farm has been a huge hit for almost five years of national tours and features the voice of CBeebies’ Justin Fletcher AKA Mr Tumble as one of the farm’s puppet characters Pongo the Pig.  There has also been Easter Bunny’s Eggs-ellent Adventure, and their sell out Santa Shows.

Writer Martin Parsons explains: “Crafty’s Creepy Castle is an interactive musical mystery for all the family, especially 2-7 years old, with the emphasis on spooky fun rather than proper scares – our castle may be creepy but it’s more funny than scary and it’s great to be writing the further adventures of the characters from Marty MacDonald’s Farm. This time they’re joined by Pirate Harry, so children who love a swashbuckling pirate story won’t be disappointed”

Producer Kate Ashmead is also looking forward to seeing some of the audience dressed up: “Children love fancy dress, so if they (and the grown-ups!) want to come in their most frightening costumes we would love to see them – in fact, they can help scare away Pirate Harry in the story too!”

The music for the production is written by acclaimed children’s composer Barrie Bignold (Justin’s House, Gigglebiz, The Sooty Show) and includes children’s favourites Ghostbusters; Dingle, Dangle Scarecrow; The Hokey Cokey; Hickory Dickory Dock; Row, Row, Row Your Boat; I Hear Thunder; and many more.

Audiences are in store for some (not very!) frightening fun – in this happy, action packed adventure.
