Rehearsals Start 05

By Open Air Theatre

RW

Rehearsals have now under way for Running Wild, which launches the 2016 season on 13 May.

The part of Will is shared between three young performers, Joshua Fernandes, Tyler Osborne and Ava Potter, who previously appeared as Scout in To Kill a Mockingbird. Also cast are Hattie Ladbury, who played Miss Maudie Atkinson in To Kill a Mockingbird, and Okorie Chukwu, who appeared in last year’s Olivier Award-nominated Peter Pan.

Joining the cast of 17 is an ensemble of 57 young performers from the local community, aged between 9 and 19, alternating performances in two groups, making this our largest ever production.

We are also delighted to welcome, within the 8 puppeteers breathing life into Finn Caldwell and Toby Olié’s orang-utans, tiger, crocodile and elephant, Fred Davis and Romina Hytten who make their professional debuts having been part of the Chichester Festival Youth Theatre production in 2015.

PUPPETS GONE WILD

During half term discover how Gyre & Gimble, the team behind the puppetry, created such lifelike animal characters in a hands-on workshop for families. Make your own prototype puppet inspired by the show, and explore the different techniques they used to bring the cast of animals to life. Each workshop is limited to 20 children (ages 8+), and public booking opens at 11am on Friday 8 April.
