***PLEASE NOTE: CHANGE OF DATE FOR AUDITION WEEKEND ***
Discover the extraordinary hidden within the ordinary as you follow the story of the beautiful Willow Pattern design.
From its origins in the romantic fable set in a traditional Chinese garden and coming to life in a modern day pottery factory, this wistful account of how the Willow Pattern came to be is retold with adventure, humour and intrigue. The show is packed with delightful songs and original choreography. There are parts galore for youth aged 8-17 years, with both challenging lead roles many substantial support roles and large ensemble work. Throw in a Chinese dragon dance, shadow puppets (a show-within-a-show-within-a-show!), a fiery kiln, a psychic tea -lady and a cast of thousands...well almost!
