SPARE PARTS BACK IN FREMANTLE

Posted in children, city of fremantle, culture, theatre, Uncategorized by freoview on December 27, 2017

 

Good news for Freo’s children and grown-ups who love puppetry. The SPARE PARTS PUPPET THEATRE company is coming back home to Fremantle, after a short stint at UWA for building renovations of their Short Street premises

They are performing the World Premiere of Roald Dahl’s very irreverent classic, The Twits, the jumpswiffling comedy of two grizzly old grunions is a super high energy combination of storytelling, puppetry and physical theatre.
 
The Twits takes you into the world of grumpy old couple, Mrs and Mrs Twit who haven’t had a good thought or done a kind thing in years. They like nothing more than dreaming up terrible tricks to play on each other. They are bound to put a grizzly grin on your face!

The Twits is a ringbeller adventure of scrottiness and goodness, rebellion and justice. The show’s gloriumptious blend of comedy and puppetry is the perfect way to have a whoopsy wiffling time this summer with the whole family.

The world premiere season of The Twits runs from January 8 to 27 with daytime and special twilight performances scheduled throughout the run. For performance times and tickets for The Twits, as well as the company’s School of Puppetry holiday workshops and many other programs and activities, visit http://www.sppt.asn.au or call 08 9335 5044.

NEW FREMANTLE PERFORMING ARTISTS

 

Fremantle Performing Artists

 

There is a new community theatre company with a difference. They don’t just perform stage plays, and don’t just concentrate on traditional theatre.

Fremantle Performing Artists is a new community group which is looking for new members.

If you or somebody you know is interested in the performing arts, regardless of experience level, send an email to brenton.foale@outlook.com or contact Brenton Foale on 0457447333.

At the moment FPA are asking for expressions of interest, while they build the group. In the coming weeks they will be holding a welcome event.

The Fremantle Performing Artists will be open to two different age groups, with separate sessions for each group. For members aged 13 to 18, and aged 19 & over.

Experience in the performing arts is not necessary, you will develop these skills and experience through continued workshops with industry professionals.

Workshops will include traditional theatre, street theatre, filmmaking, and more. Through workshops you will build confidence, develop new skills and expand on existing skills.

Each year the Fremantle Performing Artists plan to perform a minimum of two stage productions.

Organiser, Brenton Foale, has in excess of 35 years experience in the entertainment industry, including stage, screen, and television.

FREO SCHOOL HOLIDAY FUN

Spare Parts EYP

It is really good to see how popular the Fremantle ESPLANADE YOUTH PLAZA is. The place was packed today with kids and families, doing all sorts of activities, and a couple of police officers also keeping an eye on it. But it is a very peaceful and respectful environment at the EYP and that is one of the best things of it all.

At the Spare Parts Theatre the FARM play is on but also the School of Puppetry doing workshops for kids, and outside in Pioneer Park there are big colourful figures made by the people of the wheatbelt town of Merredin.
