Theatre, maths and robots will combine in a show for youngsters at the Lichfield Garrick.
Suitable for children aged between eight an 11, We’re Stuck! kicks off a national tour when it visits the city between March 22 and 25.
The show will take audiences on a tour of Volcano Industries where cutting edge scientists are struggling with some unusual and extremely tricky problems in their top-secret research laboratory.
Writer and director, Sarah Punshon, said: “We’re thrilled to get the chance to bring We’re Stuck! to loads more children across the country.
“It means we can bring our vital nonsense to kids who might think theatre isn’t for them, that maths isn’t for them, that they shouldn’t set their aspirations sky-high – and maybe make a difference to their future.”
The show was developed through workshops with the help of Maths on Toast, a charity founded to tackle the lack of opportunities for families to have fun doing maths in their local communities.
Tim Ford, artistic director at the Lichfield Garrick, said: “We’re delighted to be giving local audiences the chance to see this imaginative and engaging show.
“We’re Stuck! teaches weird and wonderful facts and problem solving, but in such a creative way that it’s accessible and really fun for everyone.
“We hope schools groups and families will take up the opportunity to help the cast get unstuck this March.”
