Yak Pack Theatre Project
The Black Cherry!
We are delighted to announce that new local venue The Black Cherry is supporting The Yak Pack Theatre Project. Its a fabulous new studio theatre in the heart of Boscombe, with an eclectic line up of live comedy, improv, music, stand up and theatre. Add to that classes in theatre, dance, art, and even a choir!
Last month they donated the proceeds of Treehouse Theatre's 'Superhero Machine' performance, taking us another £60 closer to our goals!
And on Sunday 26th June, at 3pm, they are hosting our very last fundraising event, a performance of 'Little Red Riding Hood' ! They are very kindly offering us use of their theatre, and donating every penny of the ticket sales too. That means every person who comes along is enabling a child in India to have the same experience as them. Which is exactly what this project is all about!
We're also going to be running our Yak Pack Workshops at The Black Cherry. For an hour you can join in with creating props for the show using recycled rubbish. You can have a part in the show too if you like, and we definitely need some dancers to learn a routine! We'll even teach you Himalayan Circle dancing, just as its done in Spiti. And if thats all a bit too energetic, you can curl up in our book corner and let a Yak Pack member read you a story - just as we'll be doing with youngsters in India too.
In Spiti, these workshops will be shared with school children and villagers before the show, to allow as many people as possible to join in with performances and get the most out of our visits. We'll also be donating books to the libraries and book corners wherever we go. You can bring donated books to our events - please read WE NEED BOOKS so you know what we can take - thank you!
