WHAT THE LADYBIRD HEARD TAKES OVER THE LOWRY FOR SCHOOL SUMMER HOLIDAYS

What's On Guide

This summer holiday the best-selling picture book 'What The Ladybird Heard' comes to The Lowry stage Wed 1 – Sun 26 August.

Written by Julia Donaldson and illustrations by Lydia Monks, Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len have a cunning plan to steal the farmer’s fine prize cow. But they reckon without the tiniest, quietest creature of all: the Ladybird has a plan of her own!

Cast member Emma Carroll said,

Quote

"I get to play Lily who works on the farm and the Ladybird! The Ladybird is the smallest and quietest creature on the farm but she is also the smartest. She leads the animals and they work together to foil the robbers plan to steal the fine prize cow. It shows you don’t need to be loud or big and tall to be valuable and important. I was attracted to the role because I love being part of an ensemble cast."


Join the woolly sheep, the hairy hog, the fat red hen and the dainty dog as they take on the villains in this hit musical stage adaptation of What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, published by Macmillan Children’s Books.

This action-packed 55-minute adventure has original songs, live music, puppetry, plenty of audience participation and lots of laughs, making it the perfect treat for families with children aged three and up.

The writer of the picture book Julia Donaldson said,

Quote

“I love the songs, the farmer’s song at the beginning is wonderful and the lovely, lively acting set against Lydia’s [Monks] farmyard is a joy”.


What The Ladybird Heard is presented by Kenny Wax Family Entertainment in association with Matthew Gregory.

      Shelagh Delaney’s remarkable taboo-breaking 1950s play, which was first produced in the Lyttelton Theatre in 2014, is directed by Bijan Sheibani and designed by Hildegard Bechtler, re-conceived in an exciting new production featuring a live on stage band.

      Jodie Prenger (Oliver!, Shirley Valentine, Abigail’s Party UK tour), leads the cast as Helen. Joining her are Gemma Dobson as Jo, Durone Stokes as Jimmie, Stuart Thompson as Geoffrey, and Tom Varey as Peter.
      They are joined by understudies Liam Bessell, Katy Clayton, Claire Eden, and Marcel White.

      Written by Salford's very own Shelagh Delaney when she was nineteen, A Taste of Honey offers an explosive celebration of the vulnerabilities and strengths of the female spirit in a deprived and restless world.

      When her mother Helen runs off with a car salesman, feisty teenager Jo takes up with Jimmy, a sailor who promises to marry her, before he heads for the seas.
      Art student Geoff moves in and assumes the role of surrogate parent until, misguidedly, he sends for Helen and their unconventional setup unravels.

      Hacienda legend DJ Paulette will swap the turntables for an art installation titled ‘Homebird’ at The Lowry Sat 22 September – Sun 14 October.
       
      ‘Homebird’ by DJ Paulette is the third in The Lowry’s Edit series of gallery projects and collaborations. Legendary Manchester DJ Paulette will be taking over a gallery at the Salford arts venue and turning it into an immersive mood board of her life and the influences that have shaped her as a person and a performer. 
       
      DJ Paulette has worked alongside big names of the Dance music world from Gilles Peterson and David Guetta, to Moodymanc and Mr Scruff. She has DJ'd at some of the world's most famous clubs including Hacienda, Space Ibiza, Privilege, and had a residency at IBIZA ROCKS (PIKES HOTEL) in 2015. In 2001 she was in DJ MAGAZINE's 150 TOP DJS and had her own coveted Radio 1 Essential Mix in 1998
       
      Addressing race, sexuality, gender, art and music, DJ Paulette’s installation is a joyous but provocative glimpse into different aspects of her life and career – from the “Sheroes” who have inspired her, to the obstacles she has had to overcome. 
       
      Visitors to the installation will journey through a specially constructed maze of ideas, experiences, memories and influences, providing a lens through which they can orientate their own lives.  The heart of the maze will be filled with music.
       
      Paulette says of Homebird:
      In July 2014, The Lowry galleries were renamed The Andrew and Zoe Law Galleries in recognition of the couple’s £1m donation to the arts centre, which is a registered charity.
