Award winning children’s theatre is coming to Fleetwood

Published: Wednesday, 21 May 2014


Award winning theatre company Inspector Sands is bringing a delightful show ’Rock Pool’ to Marine Hall, Fleetwood on Friday 6 June as part of their nationwide tour – perfect for kids age 3 and over.

The production will take children to the heart of Prawn and Crab’s rock pool, providing a funny, tender, exuberant and partially submerged theatre experience – best described as Samuel Beckett for kids with loud music and splashy dancing!  

When a big storm whips up the sea, two creatures are left stranded in a lonely rock pool. Prawn and Crab could not be more different. They look different, act different, and when Crab gets hungry - about every 5 minutes - it’s all Prawn can do to stop being eaten. But as the sun beats down and their little pool starts to drain away, they don’t have long to find a way of getting on and getting home.

Rock Pool marks the company’s first foray into creating work for young people. Inspector Sands’ Lucinka Eisler, who directs the production, comments, “Rock Pool is the company’s first show for this age group. We’re extremely excited to have crossed over into this field. It’s been a long-term ambition for Inspector Sands to create a high quality, innovative and accessible project specifically for young children and their families.

“In 2012, the company was fortunate to be awarded the Sprout! Commission, which enabled us to develop the show and tour it to Children’s Centres. This year, we’re redeveloping the project for a whole new audience in studio theatres across the country.”

Rock Pool comes to Marine Hall on Friday 6 June at 2pm. Tickets are just £5 and include a creative workshop with a professional artist at Rossall Point Observation Tower from 11am. For more information and to book your place call 01253 887693 or click here
