Find magic in a tale of Two Little Boys this Christmas at Lakeside Arts Centre


Looking for something different to the usual beanstalks and glass slippers this year? Perhaps you’d like to hear the story of Two Little Boys?
Award winning playwright Mike Kenny, has adapted the song made famous by Rolf Harris into heart-warming story of courage and friendship, currently showing at Lakeside Arts Centre.

The enchanting tale follows two unlikely friends, Joe and Jack, as they reminisce about their friendship over the years. Join them as they return to a time when they were just two little boys playing with their wooden horses, right through to serving in the war during adulthood and finally as dear old friends.

The play is suitable for all ages; it provides delightful humorous scenes to engage the little ones, and draws in an older audience with fond memories of their own past friendships.

A charming set provides the perfect backdrop to the performance, and playful sound effects add another dimension. A creative imagination helps bring the play to life, and of course you’re encouraged to sing-a-long to a wonderful rendition of the classic song ‘Two Little Boys’

Look out for the magical ending too, it is sure to get you into the festive spirit.

“It tells a great story, a universal story, of boys making friends, growing up and marching off to war”.
Mike Kenny. Playwright.

The play can be enjoyed up until 30 December. Tickets are £8 each. For information or for tickets please call please call 0115 846 7777
