Lily and the Albatross

Lily and the Albatross

Combining a unique style of puppetry, live music and visual performance, 'Lily and the Albatross' is a heartfelt story about achieving the unachievable and never letting go of your childhood dreams.


Far out in the wild and remote ocean is a small family on an old fishing boat who pass the time with exciting stories and merry music. The whims of the water control their daily routine but Lily finds herself gazing upwards, where birds swim weightlessly above her head before stealing the precious fish from the fishing nets. With the threat of the nightly storm and its whipping winds, the family must pull together, take a leap of faith and look beyond what they have always known to get themselves and their old boat moving again. Discover the legend of Great Captain Markham, join the family as they battle the elements and meet a gliding albatross, who flies in the face of the storm and gives Lily the nudge she needs to truly stretch her wings.


A tale of wild weather, wild birds and wild ambitions for ages 5+ (but younger welcome)

Hefted

Hefted

Hefted is a new play by David Lane - a story in nine scenes which hurtles through 600 years of life in Devon.


Leaping through landscapes and racing through eras from 1475 to 2075, Hefted will take you on an extraordinary journey through North Devon. From Dolton in 1780 you'll come to the Tarka Line in 1861, via the walking wind turbines in Bradworthy in 2005 and on to an imagined future at Lundy Island.


Inspired by conversations and interviews with people across Devon, David Lane has written a new play about the connection that we have to our land, the pull of our past and what it means for our future.


Following the sell out success of the play when performed by a community cast last year, this is a rare opportunity to see a touring studio version performed by a small professional cast including North Devon theatre company, multi story theatre.


This show is brought to the Beehive through Villages in Action, the rural touring scheme which brings exceptional quality performances to Devon.


"Incredible...I learnt so much about Devon and watching this, I felt really moved" - Audience Member


To accompany the show we are delighted to be able to host an exhibition of the work of James Ravilious, famous photographer of the Devon rural landscape, courtesy of the Beaford Archive. This will be in the Gallery.


Tickets: Adults £9, U16 £7 (Unallocated seating)

Includes 30p per ticket booking charge.

Accessible seating available by contacting the Box Office.

Dick Whittington

Dick Whittington

Following the sell-out success of Cinderella (February 2019), Honiton Community Theatre Company returns to The Beehive with one of the oldest (600 years) and most loved pantomimes of all time.


This traditional pantomime story by Gail Lowe follows the adventures of Dick and his friends as they travel from London to Morocco in search of fame and fortune with entertaining new characters as well as traditional favourites like Kitty, Sarah the Cook, King Rat and the Sultan.


Alderman Fitwarren and his motley crew are sailing for Morocco when King Rat manages to sink the ship on the shores of the Sultan’s private beach. There follows a misguided escape attempt by our heroes culminating in an exciting showdown in King Rat’s Lair.


A fun-filled panto from start to finish: a cat, a camel and lots of laughs.
