Mini Mission - The Jingle Dress show for under-5s

This vibrant live performance is a rare chance for pre-school children to enjoy inspiring theatre.

Jingle DressTheatre company State of Emergency presents a brand new children’s production touring nationally this autumn which pulls in themes about giving to others, understanding differences and simply enjoying the colour of dance and song. From Nottingham to London, Swansea to Cumbria, it’s  a show especially designer for under-5s – an audience who rarely get to see live arts just for them.

What Mini Mission – The Jingle Dress is all about

Inspired by Native American beliefs Mini Mission – The Jingle Dress is choreographed by award winning choreographer Adesola Akinleye. The title originates from a traditional Native American dress that when worn for dancing, makes a sound via movement.  In The Jingle Dress, a girl called Rayleen has been left such a dress by her grandmother but needs to find her own signature dance to make the dress jingle.

This is an interactive and atmospheric show that will get the young audience joining in through movement and song, not only in accompanying workshops but during the show itself – perfect for 3- to 5-year-olds.
