On 1 November we were thrilled to welcome to the Market House tutti frutti, a national touring theatre company from Leeds, who performed ‘Snow Child’, an enchanting tale adapted by Olivier nominated playwright, Emma Reeves.
Tutti frutti has been delighting children aged 3 and over for more than 23 years and tours nationally, putting on performances in schools, arts centres, village halls and other venues.
The performance thrilled a full house of all ages and is the first of a number of productions that the Management Committee hopes to bring to the Market House via AIR in G, a Gloucestershire-wide organisation run by Arts in Rural Gloucestershire. The scheme offers financial and practical support to individuals or organisations who wish to host performances at their local village hall, community centre or school.
