This is an exciting, unique, project for Guernsey that is an imaginative retelling of a familiar story written and directed by Oliver Bailey-Davies with a cast of professionally trained, local performers; Ruby Tapp, Rhys Ashcroft, Dan Le Friec and Troy Le Page.
In June 1940 we meet Victoria, Charles and Timothy as they are evacuated from Guernsey ten days before the German occupation. The three siblings are heading to the north of England to their safety, little do they know their adventure is just about to begin and that they are travelling towards danger and not away from it. The three children soon find themselves embroiled in a battle to save the mystical land of Sarnia from the icy grip of Guerzille, the Ice Queen. Guerzille has ruled Sarnia with fear and oppression since banishing EtaiAne the true protector of this small island.
Tin Whistle specialise in immersive, educational experiences where they challenge the audiences and hope to leave them altered and enlightened.
The show also contains new songs especially written by Apocalypse Studios, supported by the School of Popular Music, in our continued pledge to work collaboratively across the Arts sector. As the resident theatre company at the PRCPA, we will also be working in partnership with the Guernsey College of Further Education to provide vocational experience for students across a range of courses.
This production is supported by Art For Guernsey, The States of Guernsey and Guernsey College of Further Education.
