A magical light-up world comes to Unity Theatre later this month in the form of The Poetry Joe Show. Created for children aged 3+ and their families, it is a fun-packed, interactive family show using elements of magic lanterns, shadow puppetry and fabulous original poetry, described as “the perfect fun introduction to poetry and spoken word for the very young”.
Poetry Joe, poet extraordinaire (aka award-winning performer Joseph Coleho), will be armed with a mega-mix of quirky and beautiful pop-ups, props and pictures. The show takes us on a poetic adventure to make new friends, including a naughty but nice hamster, a cheating cheetah and a friendly family made out of paper and light. The children will have the opportunity to create their own poem at the end of the show.
Catch The Poetry Joe Show at the Unity on Saturday, November 21, when there will be shows at 11am and 2pm. For more info, visit the theatre’s website.
