Help us to develop our latest show, Rocket Girl!
Ditto Theatre Company are an award-winning family theatre ensemble with a passion for puppetry, storytelling and movement, with an aim to educate and inspire. Our debut show, Ingo's War, was nominated for an Eddies Award, the LET Award and, was a winner of the 2017 Reviews Hub: Beyond the Fringe Award. We toured Ingo's War across the UK, including both Brighton and Edinburgh Fringes. However none of this would have been at all possible if it wasn't for you, the public!
Once again, we are in the midst of developing a new show, Rocket Girl, the story of a little girl with not so little dreams...
"The year is 1969 and the world is changing. Beehives and miniskirts are all the rage; Everyone is listening to The Beatles; Where a bag of fish and chips would cost you 25p. And NASA has just put the first man on the moon. The world is transfixed and everyone is watching, including eight-year-old Maisie Robinson. From the very moment she saw man on the moon, Maisie knew that she was destined to be an astronaut. In her dreams she travelled beyond the earth’s atmosphere and flew amongst the brightest of stars. But unknown to Maisie, people had other plans about her future. After all, girls don’t do science, do they?
Using an amalgamation of storytelling, puppetry and movement with an original score, Ditto Theatre Company invites you to join us in making the impossible possible as one girl battles to become…Rocket Girl!"
From renting a rehearsal space, to sourcing props, costumes and puppet materials...it all begins to add up! This is where we need your help...
If you are able to donate anything from as little as £5, it would mean the absolute world to us. We are extremely passionate about Rocket Girl and the life of the show and hope to eventually tour this nationally.
