Firefly’s busy Autumn term is under way, and we are already up to our ears in workshops, projects and events. Highlights include:
Firefly’s winter show is now in rehearsal. Join us for pre-Christmas fun and magic with four performances, 4th, 5th and 6th December.
We’re delighted to be working with a talented young cast from Pinewood School, who will be performing at the Shakespeare Schools Festival at Platform on Tuesday 17th November. Directed by Kirsty Byers, there will be a home show in Blackburn on Friday 13th November – so appropriate!
Firefly are nurturing our own clan of Eco-Warriers through this new project in collaboration with Creative Carbon Scotland. With international climate-change talks in Paris at the end of November, the group are devising a series of site-specific pieces for linked climate-change events across Scotland.
MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE
Following the success of last year’s smoking cessation film project, Firefly are once again working with Falla Hill Primary’s enthusiastic young performers and film-makers. This time to raise greater awareness of alcohol-related issues. Supported by West Lothian Drug and Alcohol Services, and led by the children themselves, we seem to be on track for another kid-wise and thoughtful community resource.
A WORD IN YOUR EAR
