Spend Half-Term in the world of Harry Potter
Young people living in the Barton upon Humber and surrounding area will have the chance to spend the forthcoming half-term holiday in a wizarding world thanks to the children’s charity ST-ART and Harry Potter!
In a tribute to the young wizard Potter and his friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, there is a host of wizard opportunities aimed at young people aged between five and 19 years.
One of the highlights of Wizard Week is Duck Egg Theatre Company’s quest to produce “A Very Potter Musical” by arrangement with Star Kid Productions in just five days starting on Tuesday May 31 and culminating in a performance at Ropery Hall on Sunday, June 5.
“Only 20 places are available for this quest and so far 16 places have been taken,” said ST-ART project worker Janine Knight.
“The musical is open to anyone of any ability but those taking part must be willing to put in extra work outside of rehearsal sessions, held at The Ropewalk, and learn lines, songs and cues as the script will only be available seven days before rehearsals start.”
However Janine pointed out that for those who would be happier “behind scenes” there was the chance to make props for the musical alongside artist Michael Scrimshaw.
“Michael will be making the props on May 31 and June 1 at The Ropewalk and these will include giant pillars, wands, dragons and a sorting hat puppet,” Janine went on.
There is plenty of opportunities to enjoy other wizardry including making potion jars and exploding potions at the Westcliff Youth Centre in Scunthorpe and the Viking Resource Centre in Barton; Messenger Owls at Barnetby Village Hall and The Ropewalk Print Room; Spell Books and Wooden Wands at Barrow Village Hall and Clay Castles at Worlaby Village Hall and again at The Ropewalk Print Room.
And if you just want to sit back and watch the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 then there are two screenings at Ropery Hall on June 1 at 2.30pm and 6.30pm. At both these screenings children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
