Licketyspit goes to Philadelphia!

On 15th January 2019, Virginia will be part of a Scottish Children’s Theatre delegation to the IPAY International Showcase. International Performing Arts for Youth (IPAY) brings together specialist children’s theatre companies and venues from around the world.

Licketyspit is being supported by Imaginate and Creative Scotland to participate in the conference and explore possibilities for touring our shows in America.

Our featured show is Hare & Tortoise, Virginia Radcliffe and Deborah Arnott’s fantastic adaptation of Aesop’s fable. Featuring the Bun Brothers, Mrs Doodah and the Spooky Wood! With original music by Tim Brinkhurst and unforgettable songs by Virginia and Deborah, Hare & Tortoise is a universally loved show for the whole family.
