Kazzum presents The Boy, The Bees and The Blizzard, a mysterious, light and playful mission for children aged 6+ and their families. Heidi Vaughan directs Rose-Marie Christian (Bee Fee, Guard and Nanny McBee), Darrie Gardner (Secretary and DJ), Dean Logan (Ben and the King) and Stevie Thompson (Mum). The production opens at Shoreditch Town Hall on 11 November and runs until 18 November.
Ben got lost in a beehive. Bee brave and help to get him out! Wearing headphones to guide you along the way, you will dive into the heart of the hive, where a miserable new leader is hosting a party that no one wants to attend. Can you help send out the invitations, make the food and choose the music to get the dance floor buzzing? If you don’t come up with the goods we will all be in trouble!
Heidi Vaughn directs. She is currently the Artistic Producer at Travelling Light and was previously Artistic Director for Kazzum and Dot and Ethel Theatre Co, Head of Learning at Oxford Playhouse and Director of Young People’s Theatre at The Point, Eastleigh.
