Polka Theatre Announces 2023 Spring Season

Polka Theatre has announced a new season of children's theatre from February 2023 - May 2023.

The season opens with Polka's new production Jack V Giant, a contemporary adaptation of the fairytale classic Jack and The Beanstalk for 4-8 year olds. It is adapted by Polka's Artistic Director Peter Glanville and acclaimed singer and songwriter Barb Jungr, following their successful collaborations on We're Going on A Bear Hunt and How to Hide a Lion.

Polka will also be creating a new production for Early Years children next spring. Let's Build! is an interactive performance for 2-5 year olds, directed by Trina Halder, co-director of the Spark Festival, with design by Verity Quinn. The production is created as a coproduction with Mapping, a European project supported by the Creative Europe programme.

The season culminates with a new musical adaptation of The Lost Spells, adapted from the popular book by Robert Macfarlene and Jackie Morris, about a girl who finds a book of spells that can conjure up an entirely new world. This is a Goblin, Watford Palace Theatre, Polka Theatre & Theatre by the Lake co-production.

Polka also welcomes a range of exceptional visiting companies during the season.

Artistic Director of Polka Theatre, Peter Glanville said today: "We are delighted to be presenting Polka's new season which includes Jack v Giant, an exciting new musical version of the classic fairytale, alongside a compelling adaptation of Robert Macfarlane's The Lost Spells and Let's Build! a show for younger children which invites them to build and play together.

The past year since we reopened after our redevelopment has flown by and it has been a complete joy to welcome so many audiences back to Polka. We hope to see you soon for what promises to be an inspirational season."
