Moon Capers

Performance film for ages 4 – 9 to enjoy at home from 22 March

Although The Brunton cannot open its doors at the moment, they are working with partners to provide a range of arts and cultural options to experience online. The latest of these is the streaming of Shaper/Caper’s film, Moon Capers, an interactive performance film from for ages 4-9 and their adults, designed to be enjoyed at home. The film will be available from 22 March at 10am and can be viewed multiple times for a week, costing £5 plus a booking fee.

Shaper/Caper invite young people to take a trip to space to help rescue the cow who jumped over the moon, in Moon Capers, a fabulous creative and interactive performance film that is 30 minutes long and can be enjoyed from living rooms.

Moon Capers is programmed with support from the Scottish Government’s Performing Arts Venue Relief Fund through Creative Scotland.

Following the success of The Brunton’s online pantomime Rapunzel, The Brunton Theatre Trust are keen to continue offering audiences a chance to enjoy cultural experiences from home, whilst the venue remains unable to open. A spokesperson for the Theatre Trust said:

“Arts experiences play an important role in our wellbeing. Sadly The Brunton is currently unable to welcome people into the building, so we very much want to provide our audiences with the same kind of high quality digital arts and entertainment that they would expect to enjoy at The Brunton. This performance film from Shaper/Caper is a fun, interactive experience for children and their families to enjoy at home together.”

As The Brunton currently remains closed, the Trust are appealing for donors to help support them to survive, thrive and continue to bring a programme of arts and entertainment to East Lothian and beyond. Donations can be made via The Brunton’s website .
