Audiences support Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity families

This festive season The Berry Theatre is continuing their association with Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity, which supports families caring for a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.  The venue is asking audiences to purchase additional tickets to the festive run of STICK MAN so that a family supported by Rainbow Trust, can share in the magic this Christmas and attend a performance.

Presented by renowned children’s theatre company Freckle Production’s, this delightful adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s STICK MAN is packed with puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves – making it a madcap Christmas treat for the whole family.

What starts off as a morning jog becomes quite the misadventure for Stick Man in this five star family show by a trio of top actors.

“Providing tickets for these shows gives the families an opportunity for them to come together as a family for maybe the first time in months.

“These shows provide the family with a fun filled memory away from the day to day hospital visits and treatments and it’s an opportunity for the whole family to be together or maybe just the opportunity for parents to do something with the siblings away from the hospital.” - Dawn Pond, Rainbow Trust Southampton Family Support Manager

STICK MAN runs from 13-31 December at The Berry Theatre in Hedge End and tickets cost £14 with £12 concessions and £10 for groups of ten or more.

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides bespoke emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. The charity has nine care teams of Family Support Workers across England, including Southampton, supporting families at home, in hospital and in the community to help make life a little easier.
