Fizzy Finn – Primary School Film

Fizzy Finn – on film for Primary Schools

Nov 22 – Jan 8

Many young children have found recent lockdowns and absences from friends and family very stressful, causing anxieties they find hard to articulate.  Riding Lights has created this wonderfully insightful Christmas show to address some of these problems in a gentle, fun way.  Through the character of Finn and his discovery of Tink the cobbler and her amazing story-telling Shoe Shop, we jump right into tales of bravery, fear and finding your feet in a stormy world.

Episode 1 – Tink the Cobbler’s Story Shop
Confused and anxious, Fizzy Finn arrives on Christmas Eve, escaping from a thunderstorm that has been chasing him for weeks. After advising him to ‘Blotzsh the Glim’, Tink hopes he will learn from the surprising story of poor Suzy Pettiskew.

Episode 2 – Barney Box and the Expanding Dog
Crackling electricity from the storm outside keeps Finn sheltering in the shop. He gets caught up in the world of Barney Box and his Expanding Dog – a problem which grows bigger and bigger, the longer Barney tries to keep it secret.

Episode 3 – Fizzy Finn Finds His Feet
We discover that Tink, too, has a remarkable shoe story of her own to tell and sharing it with Finn gives courage to them both. Finn finds his feet as he begins to understand why, this year, the prospect of having ‘two Christmases’ has been making him feel so strangely ‘fizzy’.

Fizzy Finn – Friargate Theatre Shows

Fizzy Finn Finds His Feet at Friargate Theatre December 18 – December 23

With its magical blend of vivid story-telling, original music and creative
puppetry, you’re in for a treat!  

Finn is a fidget. His brain is ablaze with an unbreakable buzz that fizzes to his
fingers and tickles his toes…or it would do if he could only find his
feet.  ‘Electricity ripples like thunder in my chest and lightning in my brain. I can’t
escape!’

Christmas brings surprises and not all of them are nice. It’s a crackling mix of hopes
and fears and they’re definitely getting closer.  So Finn is on the run. Can stories
help to untangle things? If only someone would listen to Suzy Pettiskew before she
bursts. Or stop Barney Box’s dog from growing bigger night by night. And can
anyone really ‘blotzch the Glim’?

Join Finn and the curious cobbler live at Friargate Theatre in York in the run-
up to Christmas

Rent The Selfish Giant for a week for just £7!

The Giant is angry. He’s been away for a long time and returns to find children – children! – playing in his beautiful garden!

Every day after school, they come and run about, laughing and playing games under the blossom on his peach trees, listening to the delightful songs of the birds. So, he puts up a big wall and an even bigger KEEP OUT notice to put a stop to all that. Then winter seizes the garden in its icy fingers…  

Will its grip ever be broken?

Pericles, Prince of Tyre

 

Shakespeare’s PERICLES, Prince of Tyre

In a stunning, stripped-back version of a rarely performed adventure, Pericles is reborn, full of passion and laced with comedy.  Brilliantly designed, brought to life and shot in an innovative theatre-on-film style born out of the necessities of our times. Catch this astonishing 80 minutes of highly accessible story-telling : Pericles as you’ve never seen it before.

Riding Lights, a York company with a reputation for breathing fresh energy into Shakespeare’s later comedies, has clearly been on a creative voyage themselves to deliver this captivating re-telling.
