Nice Again

Shows listed under "For Families" in the Fringe programme are sometimes passed by by people who haven't got young children. A great shame, then, if you've overlooked Turned Out Nice Again which is at the Buxton Methodist Church - final performances on 24th July.

Opening on the 21st is The Clock Master which looks promising.
Don’t listen to stories, they’re dangerous tender… for who wants a life of mystery and adventure?

When a stubborn young girl enters a shop of clockwork wonders looking to sell her pocket watch she soon finds herself taken on a magical journey by trickster-storyteller, the Clock Master. Stories of minstrels and monkeys! Of clockwork girls and paper birds! Yet there is a real twist in the tail when she discovers the true nature of her mysterious trinket. What will she decide to do?

”…a real treat… I really hope to see more from this multi-talented troop of actors, storytellers, puppeteers and musicians. Enchanting.”
Lady in The Dark, Oct 2009 - Julia Rank, Theatre and literary critic

“Wonderfully enchanting storytelling and puppetry… One not to be missed.”
***** Five Stars Eirini Kartsaki for Remotegoat, June 2010
Very different - but also opening on 21st July at the Marquee, Poole's Cavern is Hotel Europa

Europe : 3 families, 3 countries … many stories
Following their sell-out performance at London’s BAC as part of The Accidental Festival 2010, inprocess collective, a group of international artists from Portugal, the Czech Republic and UK, will be appearing in The Buxton Festival Fringe at Nice Venues Marquee at Poole’s Cavern Grounds with their new adaptation of HOTEL EUROPA from 21st to 24th July at 5:45pm. The group have appeared previously at Surge 2.0 in London, on tour in the Czech Republic, at the Arnolfini in Bristol and to critical acclaim on the Brighton Festival Fringe in May this year.
“three skilled performers … push away any comfort zones – emotionally and physically – to make us really think (and feel), and they succeeded. Thought-provoking, innovative and important, Inprocess Collective is one to watch.”
- Monica Perdoni, The Latest

Sitting between theatre and live art, inprocess collective offer their audiences, immersive, experimental, intimate and truthful entertainment which touches the intellect and the heart.
“the perfect balance of skill and passion, risk and structure”
- Anna Furse, theatre maker and academic

Finally, for now, opening in the Pauper's Pit on 20th July is The Morning After The Night Before
More than a third of British adults drink over the safe daily alcohol limit,” - The Guardian
You’re sixteen and invincible. Your exams are over. Your school days up and tonight…
There’s going to be a party.
One night to do the things you never dared, one night to let it all go, one night to make it count.
Tonight, is going to be messy.

After a successful tour to local Nottingham schools performing their previous show CBA, Craft Theatre Company would like you to join us in celebrating our 1st anniversary you at the Buxton Fringe.

It’s Keith’s sixteenth birthday and tomorrow he receives his GCSE results. Too old now for balloons and cake his loving parents, who are attending a wedding for the weekend, leave Keith home alone.

TMATNB tells the story of a group of teens at a summer house party. Expect booze, flirting, fighting, jumping, smashing, sicking, falling, peeing and in-your-face excitement. After all the mess and confusion, at some point we all have to learn. Even if you cross your fingers. Even if you say you’re sorry. Even if you didn’t mean it. Some hangovers never go away.

I don’t know about you, but teenagers scare the s**t out of me

Craft Theatre Company is a youth theatre with a difference. The group made up of 15-16 year olds make totally ensemble modern theatre of which they have complete ownership. The kids delight in learning new skills and ways of presenting their ideas on stage. Craft is a place where everyone is free to express their feelings, questions and opinions artistically.

Craft gives you something you cannot learn in school.

Craft was set up by two Hull University graduates in July 2009 with the intention to make honest youth theatre about relevant, funny and cutting issues that challenge our perception of our society. We are incredibly excited about bringing Craft to the Buxton experience.
