Oldham Coliseum Theatre Open Day 2011

Filed under: circus skills, Community, Stilts, Walkabout — alltheskills @ 7:19 pm

  It was a gloriously sunny day as

members of the public arrived to find out just what

exactly takes place inside the doors of Oldham Coliseum

Theatre, one of England’s few remaining producing theatres.

Naomi returned to her former place of work bringing Sean with her to entertain the crowds with a little circus magic. The day began with meet and greet, visitors were welcomed by a very tall pink lady and a Gingerbread man (the Coliseum’s very own Peter Wakefield).

Run run as fast as you can—will you catch Peter the Gingerbread man?

 

Families were then able to try their hand at juggling, diabolo, plate spinning and flower stick. Congratulations to Alex who learnt to juggle today- well done and keep going!!!!!!!

Sean also produced over 100 balloon animlas, flowers and ray guns.

It was fantastic to see the theatre so full of people and hopefully visitors saw that the Coliseum really does offer something for everyone. As well as watching a production there is the opportunity to be in one yourself or perhaps you are more interested in doing something hands on backstage? There are also playreading and writing groups and an activity group Full Circle for those over 50. Busy parents can leave their children having fun in a creative drama workshop while they go to Sainsburys and the annual pantomime offers fun for all the family.

Hope to see you all next year!!!!!
