FAMILY-FRIENDLY FUN 

SUMMER 2024

Adapted by Scoot Theatre

Directed by Nel Crouch

Co-Produced by Farnham Maltings and supported by Arts Parnership Surrey

"WHAT THIS BIKE NEEDS...," saYS mrs armitage

Stars twinkle b

If you could change anything on your bicycle, what would it be? A comfy new saddle?

An ice cream maker? Rocket boosters?! 

When Mrs Armitage goes out for a ride with her trusty dog Breakspear, she decides her bicycle needs improvement. With a new horn, a picnic hamper…and a sail, will Mrs Armitage be able to keep her bicycle in one piece or will her crazy contraption prove too much to handle?

Adapted from Quentin Blake’s classic tale, Mrs Armitage on Wheels, Scoot Theatre present a 40-minute interactive, energetic show, celebrating the joy of getting outdoors and being active. Scoot Theatre’s adaptation is a fun, family show suitable for aged 3+ and particularly enjoyable to primary-aged children, featuring live music, puppetry and physical comedy, Mrs Armitage on Wheels celebrates the power of imagination, the importance of resilience and the joy of embracing the great outdoors.

Partnering with Farnham Maltings and Arts Partnership Surrey, Scoot Theatre have developed Mrs Armitage on Wheels as a touring production through collaborative theatre workshops in several Surrey schools and nurseries. Developing the story with early years and primary children has created a highly physical, almost non-verbal performance, drawing heavily on clowning and playfulness. The piece is accessible on many levels, with wide audience appeal.

 

We will be out on the road with Mrs Armitage in July and August 2024,

with tickets available soon!

And we’re still booking our tour so if you know of a suitable venue then get in touch!
