That’s the promise in store for children and parents who attend acclaimed childrens’ theatre company Licketyspit‘s new production at the Brunton Theatre in Musselburgh this week.
With performances for nursery & primary children from Wed 8th – Fri 10th September (10.30am & 1.30pm), followed by public performances on Sat 11th September (1pm and 3pm), Magic Spaghetti aims to educate as well as entertain, with a food-filled and action-packed tale of greed, magic and cultural diversity.
Written and directed by Virginia Radcliffe, Magic Spaghetti concerns the tale of Mayor MacBerto, who has Scotaly in his greedy grasp after convincing the inhabitants to stop growing & cooking food of their own and only buy his MacBerto pies. When the Mayor’s son Tony sees Strega Nona create some delicious-looking spaghetti from her magical pot, he delights the townspeople by doing the same – only he doesn’t know the secret of making it stop…
Part of a Scottish tour, Magic Spaghetti’s dates at the Brunton Theatre will be accompanied by a hands-on exhibition for children, featuring three market carts full of fun facts and information all about food.
So head along to the Brunton Theatre this week for a fun-packed parable of pasta and culinary conjuring with Licketyspit’s Magic Spaghetti.
Ticket prices: £6, £22 family of 4, £1 under 18months, £5 for nurseries (£4.50 for ELC nurseries), free teachers ticket for every 10 children’s tickets purchased.
