Burnham-On-Sea theatre set to host 'captivating play' today

Award-winning drama group AsOne Theatre Company are set to perform 'a captivating twist on an original tale' in Burnham-On-Sea today (Thursday).

Powerful storytelling, puppetry, shadow play and animated imagery, plus live, original music and song all combine in the show at The Princess Theatre at 3pm.

The play gives a classic Hans Christian Andersen tale an illuminating Jurassic Coast twist, with added heart and soul plus humour.

The performance will also feature local children enjoying the opportunity to take part in professional theatre.

Tickets are priced at £10 for standard entry, concessions £6.50 and families £30 via the box office on 01278 784464.

AsOne Theatre Company’s Artistic Director Jane McKell said: "We wanted to bring a contemporary, magical piece of theatre to the stage that unites the extended family, and has them leaving the theatre talking about what has just engaged and excited them."

"Tinderbox is a thrilling story with strong, colourful yet vulnerable characters, and themes of adventure, love, loss, and lessons learned. The multi-media way we tell it; the combination of puppets, life music, animated image and talented physical performance adds up to magic for all the family."
