SRT's The Little Company brings you a refreshing new take on Hans Christian Andersen's well-loved fairy tale. Directed by Kate Golledge (Red Riding Hood, 2013), The Nightingale is a joyful burst of song that reminds us all to appreciate and value the world around us.
Enchanted by the lilting birdsong of the plain-looking, brown Nightingale, the little Emperor of China captures and keeps her in a gilded cage for his daily entertainment. But soon, along with her freedom, the beautiful voice of the Nightingale is lost and a singing mechanical bird replaces her.
Will she survive her days in captivity? Will she ever fly freely again? Join the Nightingale and friends in their quest for her freedom. With catchy rhymes, beautiful music and clever dialogue, it is a 'trill-ing' show that will definitely captivate young audiences!
