Due to popular demand, SRT’s The Little Company brings you its refreshing take on Hans Christian Andersen’s well-loved fairy tale. Directed by Kate Golledge (Chicken Little, Treasure Island, Red Riding Hood), The Nightingale is a joyful burst of song that reminds us to appreciate and value the world around us.
Enchanted by the lilting birdsong of the plain-looking, brown Nightingale, the Emperor of China captures and keeps her in a gilded cage for his daily entertainment.
But soon, along with her freedom, the beautiful voice of the Nightingale is lost and she is replaced by a singing mechanical bird.
Will she survive her days in captivity? Will she ever fly freely again? What happens when the mechanical bird fails? Join the Emperor and the Nightingale as they discover true friendship.
With catchy rhymes and clever dialogue, it is a ‘trill-ing’ show that will definitely captivate young audiences!
