|Despite high production values; funny actors, puppets, projection and a dragon, this is going to fit into your space with a four hour get-in and an hour and a half out. It is light enough to play alongside other performances.
There is an acting company of four plus a stage manager.
If you've seen our Edinburgh version, You'll appreciate that we had to cut the set, stage furniture and props to the barest minimum. In the touring version there's a bit more stuff., new costumes, a new puppet and a bit of staging were added for the Brighton performances at the Theare Royal.
The play will be in two halves of approximately 35 minutes with an interval, the first half will be Noggin & the King; the second, Noggin & the Ice Dragon.
For those who saw the 1 hour Edinburgh version, there is an element of repetition in the action as Act II begins in the same way as Act I with the story being reprised as it was in the tv films and there is a longer build up to the story of the Ice dragon and another song and a new puppet!
A playing area of 6m x 6m seems a reasonable minimum although the piece is designed to play a larger stage. We have kept the design flexible in order to fit into pretty much any space. We do need to play in front of our back projection; we will have a self supporting scaff structure to hold the screen, projector & mirror and indeed to hide the dragon.
If your's is a non theatre venue, then worry not, we can always work out our best staging options. The projections look better in the dark but we have a powerful projector and a black out is not necessary.
