"Once upon a time, at the very beginning of time, there was a big BANG! Then, there were stars [Do stars make a sound?]. Around the stars spun planets. And one of the planets was called ‘Earth’. Don’t believe me? You’re sitting on it right now. And if you’re not sitting, then sit down immediately, because the story is about to begin. This is the story of the Three Little Mammoths."
Three Little Mammoths is a interactive spoken-word play for children of primary-school age featuring live music by The Marsyas Trio and narration by Eoin McLaughlin, author of the original text, well-known for his best-selling children's book, 'The Hug'.
Exploring themes of kindness, generosity and tolerance, the story centres around the migration of the main characters to far-off lands, where everything is different from their home.
With a musical score by award-winning composer Robin Haigh, the play is also designed to be an exciting first experience of chamber music with music for flute/piccolo, 'cello and piano. The hour-long performance will include interactive introductions to these musical instruments and an audience sing-along!
