Help select The Emperor's New Perfume at Exeter Phoenix
11:58am Thursday 28th June 2012 in Devon
SMELLY fun for children is coming to Exeter Phoenix in the form of The Emperor’s New Perfume from December 12 to January 5.
The famous parfumier of the town of Sniffniff creates the best scent in the land. One day the Emperor, hearing of his smelly skills, demands that he create a new perfume, a perfume never smelt before, a perfume fit for a king, or else there will be trouble.
The parfumier now needs your help to create the perfect pong. Together with his assistant, he needs to mix some special ingredients, and work out which scents are best.
Which perfume will please the Emperor? What creates the perfect smell? What happens if the sniff isn’t up to scratch?
This will be the tenth year that Exeter Phoenix has collaborated with Quirk Theatre for its family winter show.
Quirk Theatre is renowned for its ingenious theatrical devises, freshness of interpretation and simple but stunning costume and set design.
Children are also invited to play with different smells and create bathbombs with special ingredients from Lush! Workshops cost £1.50 and can be booked with a ticket to the show.
The show is suitable for ages five and above.
Tickets cost £6.50 for children, £9.50 for adults (£6.50 concessions) and £6 for schools, available on 01392-667080 and online at www.exeterphoenix.org.uk
