Scoot Youth Theatre Presents: The Selfish Giant - Riverhouse Barn Christmas Production

Charlie and LG are best friends. Charlie loves animals. LG loves dancing.
One day they discover a beautiful garden which quickly becomes their favourite place in the world, even though they know it belongs to a terrifying giant.  But when the giant comes home and finds them both in his garden, he is furious, and he throws them out. He even builds a wall to stop them ever coming back. Without the children there to look after it, the garden stays covered in snow, forever winter.

The giant can’t understand why spring won’t visit him. It’s up to Charlie and LG to save the garden before it is altered permanently - but can they make the giant change his ways?

Scoot Theatre’s new adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s rebirth tale focuses on young people's power to change the world. Charlie and LG must learn to face their fears to save the garden they love so much. But can they lead the miserable old giant back to his inner child and make him understand the damage he is causing to his environment?

Scoot’s 45-minute production, full of original music by musician Phil King and stunning puppetry, is suitable for children and giants alike but is particularly aimed at ages 4-10.
It will be performed by Scoot’s own youth theatre, Scoot Youth, who have been an ensemble for over one year now, meeting every Saturday morning at the Riverhouse Barn.
