Bedford School Creative Arts Festival & Ditto Theatre Company present

Rocket Girl

Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd June, 2.30pm (+11am on 23rd June)

From the makers of Ingo’s War.

The year is 1969 and the world is changing. Beehives and miniskirts are all the rage; Everyone is listening to The Beatles; Where a bag of fish and chips would cost you 25p. And NASA has just put the first man on the moon. The world is transfixed and everyone is watching, including eight-year-old Maisie Robinson. From the very moment she saw man on the moon, Maisie knew that she was destined to be an astronaut. In her dreams she travelled beyond the earth’s atmosphere and flew amongst the brightest of stars. But unknown to Maisie, people had other plans about her future. After all, girls don’t do science, do they?

Using an amalgamation of storytelling, puppetry and movement with an original score, Ditto Theatre Company invites you to join us in making the impossible possible as one girl battles to become…Rocket Girl!

Rocket Girl was developed in association with the National Theatre of Scotland as part of their 2018 Exchange Programme.

BSL Interpretation: We are excited to announce that the 2.30pm performance on Sunday will have BSL interpretation!
