The Enchanted Cinema presents


...My Neighbour Totoro and Where the Wild Things Are

Join The Enchanted Cinema for this delightful double-bill.  Using your hands, your voice & instruments including xylophones, join the “FX Crew” to create sound FX to scenes from My Neighbour Totoro and to bring to life Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are.

Sound effects include a creaking porch, feet jumping through the snow, a river, magical chimes for a giant tree, a tinkling bell for Totoro’s whiskers, the roars, and eyeballs of Sendak’s Wild Things and much more. The grown-ups will be asked to help too.

Every child gets a chance to be involved if they choose to, with older kids rising to the challenge of playing the xylophone or narrating the Wild Things animation live and younger ones delighting in the “cicada” shakers or “tree-frog” guiros.

With an inclusive and light-hearted atmosphere throughout, each show also features a live musical score by Kieron and Gareth, aka The Enchanted Cinema.

After the show take a tour of the Benbow Arts Space, try your hand at stop-frame animation; create a zoetrope; and design a magic lantern slide to become part of our community artwork. 

Part of the Benbow Arts Space Open House.
