M6 Theatre Company’s Mission…Save the World!

The Carriageworks in Leeds is the place and 30 October is the date.  The time is either 11 a.m. or 2 p.m.  The audience?  Children over 5 and their families.

Mission…Save the World! is M6 Theatre Company’s new production.  It’s energetic and highly visual and all about the rivalry between two superheroes; their strengths and weaknesses.  They do share one significant problem – Mission Control – voiced by Sue Johnston OBE.

Captain Clever is good at breaking codes and solving problems, and Captain Conker is super-fast and not scared of anything.  Well, maybe spelling.  When they engage in a tadpole catching competition, they work as a team, overcoming their differences in order to save the world.

Gilly Baskeyfield, who created the story and is the Company’s Artistic Director, said:

Mission…Save the World! is an original M6 piece that awakens the inner superhero in all of us and explores the ways in which working together can make a big difference.  It’s wonderful to see how mesmerised children are when watching the show – especially the excitement around whether the tadpoles on stage are real!

 It has been a real privilege to work with our patron, Sue Johnston OBE, on this project. Sue has such a long running history with us at M6, having acted in productions during the 1970s and 1980s and remained a constant supporter of our company and its work.”

 M6 Theatre Company was founded in 1977 and is based in Rochdale.  The Company specialises in theatre for young audiences.

Tickets cost £10.50 (Concessions £9.50) and are available from the Carriageworks Theatre box office on 0113 376 0318 or online at www.carriageworkstheatre.co.uk.
