Dance show set to tell a folk tale

A DANCE company will bring a classic folk tale to life at Barnsley’s Civic Theatre next month.

Springs Dance Company will perform The Magic Paintbrush at the venue as part of a tour of the production across the country.

The show has a quirky urban soundtrack and tells the tale of a young person given a paintbrush that magically brings paintings to life.

Choreographed by Darren Ellis, The Magic Paintbrush has been created for audiences aged three plus.

The cast of Naomi Cook, Hannah Rochelle, Charles Washington and Emily Yong will be at the Civic on Sunday, May 14, starting at 3pm.

Tickets cost £8, £6 for concessions and £5 for children.

Director Nathan Stickley said: “The Magic Paintbrush is a modern retelling of an old folk tale, a girl who is given a magic paintbrush brings joy and hope to a bleak world.

“We’ve created an imaginative production that keeps on inspiring both children and adults long after coming to see the show. Our audiences haven’t stopped talking about the show’s magic and surprises.”
