Darlington Civic Theatre Starlight press release

2017 Civic Theatre season opens with a touch of Starlight

The 2017 season for Darlington Civic Theatre kicks off with Starlight, from storyteller Chris Bostock, with two performances on Saturday 28 January in the Crown Street Art Gallery at Darlington’s Crown Street Library.

Chris Bostock is a professional storyteller and theatre worker with a background in teaching, theatre and theatre in education. He tells traditional tales from many different cultures, to listeners of all ages.

His stories are chosen to entertain, excite and encourage listeners to dream with open eyes…. and then to become storytellers themselves. His work in schools complements national curriculum attainment targets and supports teachers’ creative and linguistic requirements for their pupils.

Starlight is the story of little possum, who lived in a cave with his mother. One night he went outside and saw bright stars shining in the sky. They were so beautiful, that he collected some to take home. The next day his mother was ill and little possum was told he had to find his own food. Although he was very afraid of going out alone, his mother told him he was very brave…and then his journey began. He learned many things along the way – about friendship, science and nature – and he was able to find his way home with the help of his own starlight.

Starlight is perfect for children between 2 and 6 years old with their families.

Please note these performances take place at Crown Street Art Gallery, Crown Street Library, Darlington.

Starlight is on Saturday 28 January 11.30am & 2.30pm. Tickets £4, family ticket £14 (4 people, minimum 1 adult). To book or for further information contact the Box Office on 01325 486 555 or visit www.darlingtoncivic.co.uk
