Book tickets now for Theatre Peckham’s 2014 Christmas show, The Magic Paintbrush, featuring Theatre Peckham’s talented students.
Long ago in ancient China there was a very poor village where even the children had to work in the fields. The poor people had half their crops taken from them. Half of everything they made had to be given to the King. This King was very selfish and wanted to keep everything for himself, especially anything bright and beautiful, so he forbade all the ordinary people to wear bright, colourful clothing. Anyone found wearing colourful clothes would be punished!
In the village was a young girl called Ling. Ling was a lively girl, and more than anything Ling loved to draw. She would draw with a stick in sand, with chalk on a wall, and as she drew she would think of all the things she could make for people, if only her drawings were real. One day she was given a MAGIC PAINTBRUSH. Ling’s drawings were bright, colourful and MAGICAL!
In this colourful, exciting production of an old Chinese tale, the talented children of Theatre Peckham’s performing arts programme join with professional actors to produce a marvellous, musical tale of magic, with very many surprises! Come and find out how Ling was given the magic paintbrush, how she used it to help many people and to overcome those who wanted to steal her MAGIC PAINTBRUSH.
We will be advertising for 2 new INTERNS in late August please look out for further details coming soon
