The Arts Centre

Tutti Frutti and York Theatre Royal present Hare and Tortoise at the Rose Theatre. A story about racing, winning, losing, opposites, time and friendship. Suitable for aged 2 years upwards.

Tickets £4.50 all

The stop watch is set; we hear the ‘tick, tick, tick’
Are you ready?  Are you steady?
Geared up and raring to go, Hare is in training, stood at the starting line, alert… waiting…

Who is the fastest, the best, the most athletic…?

The old clock chimes; we hear ‘the tick and the tock’
Slowly does it, taking it easy,
Tortoise is planning his winter hibernation, poised with pen and paper, pondering… resting zzz

Steady as you go, steady as you go…

Meet our two competing friends in this new fantastic adaptation of Aesop’s fable; a story about racing, winning, losing, opposites, time and friendship. Tutti Frutti takes you on a journey through the seasons; from sun-shining spring to snow-falling winter telling this much loved story brimming with ideas, characters, live music and wonderful physicality.
