What’s on at Z-Arts

  • 1 April – 1 May (Musical)
    11 – 13 April & 17 – 18 April (Imaginative Worlds)

    Witness the entire production and performance of a musical unfold live in our galleries.

    Community groups from Liverpool and Lancashire will work with artist Christopher Kline to produce a musical based on his hometown of Kinderhook. The gallery spaces will then be turned into a working set as they meet, rehearse and prepare for the show.

    Over the Easter holidays, be inspired by the display and drop-in to our free family workshop, Imaginative Worlds, where your little one’s can dress up and create their very own puppet, mask or theatrical prop to display on our stage!

Once upon a time, as darkness falls, four children from different corners of the world meet in dreamtime. By the flickering firelight, up the spiral staircase of his crumbling library, the Story Giant waits for them. He is older than memory, older than time and for generations he has collected stories like falling stars. But now he waits. He waits for their stories, for their imaginations and for the one tale in all the world that can save him.

Adapted by Lindsay Rodden from the book by Brian Patten this is a family adventure into the magic of storytelling.
