Woodend Barn welcomes Aladdin

After Wee Stories’ brilliantly funny ‘Arthur, the Story of a King’, at 7pm tonight (Thursday), comes another classic children’s tale, this time from Arabia.

Indigo Moon Theatre’s production of Aladdin comes to Banchory’s Woodend Barn, at 2pm on Wednesday, October 12, to delight the over fours and their parents.

Taken from 1001 Tales of Arabian Nights, Aladdin is told using giant shadow puppets and a little light and magic with original music by Haviel Perdana. Shadow puppetry has been around since the Han dynasty in China and is considered to be the original form of animation. After the show, people can stick around and Indigo Moon will also reveal to families how to create their own shadow theatre.

This year’s Sound Festival kicks off at 7.30pm on Saturday, October 22. at Woodend Barn with Red Note Ensemble, in association with National Theatre Scotland, performing Philip Glass’ 1000 Airplanes on the Roof.

This is pure Glass - ethereal, hypnotic and dramatic - combined with the recollections of a mysterious man and his encounters with extra-terrestrial life, or is he just on the verge of a breakdown?

People can get close and feel those terrific bass notes from the ensemble as the story unfolds.

Tickets for all three are available at Woodend Barn Box Office on (01330) 825431 or www.woodendbarn.co.uk
