On Monday 16th March the government announced that unnecessary social contact should be avoided, and that theatres (along with other public spaces) should be avoided. The safety of our customers, volunteers and staff is paramount, and in light of this announcement it is with a heavy heart that we have closed the Fisher Theatre with immediate effect, until we receive further instruction that it is safe to reopen.
All shows in March and April have been cancelled or postponed and customers who have already booked tickets will be contacted.
The situation regarding shows in May will be monitored and updates posted on our Website and Facebook pages.
Thank you for your support of the Fisher Theatre and your understanding at this difficult time.
This tells the story of a family of tiny people who live beneath the floors of a deteriorating English country home. Pod and Homily Clock care for themselves and their adventurous daughter, Arrietty, by borrowing what they need and a little more, from the human “beans” who live up above.
In writing we noticed how Arrietty resembles the young Anne Frank, keeping a diary of her restricted life under the floorboards, and dearly wishing to escape into a more expansive and exciting world, though full of dangers of a less deliberately malicious kind than Anne faced, in the shape of animals, insects, lack of shelter and food and inclement weather. The Clock family become refugees, facing great danger to find a safe place to live.
FYTG have created and adapted the story into a script from the novel, suitable for our young Nestling performers. Their second solo show as a new group.
