making mischief is such fun for young theatre goers

Children of all ages will be making merry at Nottingham Playhouse later this month as the theatre hosts a night of sheer Mischief. It's a new dance show specially created for young people. Children's theatre specialists Theatre-Rites and rising choreographer Arthur Pita have combined their talents to make Mischief, a mix of dance moves with visual art, clowning, puppetry, music and song. The show is described as "bursting with energy, creative play and magical silliness" and is aimed at children aged between three and 12 and their families.

After travelling the country and gaining rave reviews, including five stars in The Times, Mischief concludes its tour at Nottingham Playhouse on Thursday with a child-friendly start time of 7pm. In the show, the cast inhabits a rainbow world of weird shapes and forms in which visual artist Sophia Clist has transformed simple materials like foam into jaunty characters and mythological creatures; dark forests and magic caves; and much more besides. Feats of theatre and puppetry are interspersed with dancing and forays into the audience.

Composer and musician Charlie Winston accompanies the dancing with all manner of music, songs and sound effects live on stage. The support act on Peter Gabriel's tour earlier this year, Winston is an outstanding one-man band in his own right and marries sound to the visuals in engaging fashion. Mischief is the brainchild of Sadler's Wells and innovative producers Dance Touring Partnership. For both, this is the first commission specially created for children and families where contemporary dance is firmly at the heart of the theatrical experience.

Tickets are £12 (£10 concessions). Family ticket are £36 (two adults and two children). To book, call the box office on 0115 941 9419 or visit
