A new children's show based around the uses of dough in everyday cooking and how the mundanity of a beige culinary lifestyle can be broken with a bit of exploration is coming to Burnley.

“Dough!”, from Olivia Furber and Creative Scene, will be performed at Burnley Library on Thursday, 6th April at 2.30pm, as part of Spot On Lancashire’s spring season of touring, taking professional arts events to village halls and libraries across the county.

In the show, we help Frankie resolve the chaos in her kitchen by journeying to an unfamiliar place where everything tastes, smells, and feels different and where she meets Azad, a baker who shows her how fantastic things can be done with the dough that makes our everyday loaves, naan bread, croissants, dumplings, and chapattis.

Tickets for the show, which is suitable for children aged 3-8 and their grown ups, can be booked directly from each venue, with Creative Scene’s Vicky Holliday saying: "Children under eight and their grown ups too will delight in the chaos and the beauty as Azad and Frankie try to make the food.

“We really enjoy bringing the show to libraries and village halls as the audience are able to get much closer to the action and there's even opportunity for them to stay and play at then end,” she added.

The Lancashire shows have been subsidised by Big Imaginations, a region-wide group of venues and promoters dedicated to bringing brilliant children’s theatre to the north west.
