What can you expect when you get yourself to Cirencester for the Barn Theatre's critically acclaimed new actor-musician revival of Stiles and Drewe's JUST SO? Watch this brilliant new trailer and check out what critics have been saying...
The Barn Theatre in Cirencester ends its hugely successful first year with Kirk Jameson's actor-muso production of Stiles and Drewe's Just So, which has opened to another round of top reviews for the new Cirencester powerhouse - which is also celebrating a nomination for Fringe Theatre of the Year in the prestigious Stage Awards.
In Just So, five of Rudyard Kipling's short stories are woven together into a wondrous tale of personal courage, individuality and friendship. The Eldest Magician is creating all the animals. Everything is Just So until Pau Amma the Crab starts playing with the ocean, which causes the land to flood, putting the other animals in danger. While the rest of the animals accept their sad fate, Elephant’s Child embarks on a journey to challenge and overcome the disobedient crab. Along the way, he meets other creatures and discovers how they came to be the way they are.
Matthew Kelly provides The Voice of Pau Amma The Crab. Onstage Lewis Cornay (asElephant's Child), Molly Lynch (Kolokolo Bird) and Duncan Drury (Eldest Magician) star alongside Dylan Wynford, Evie Rose Lane, Grant Urquhart, Imogen Halsey, Kiran Patel, Michaela Stern and Rosalind Ford. Orchestrations by Christopher Jahnke, new orchestrations by Nick Barstow, choreography by Joanna Goodwin and set design by Ryan Dawson Laight. John Clancy is associate orchestrator.
