Morpurgo play for young people at Buxton

toro!imageToro! Toro! (written by the children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo) will be brought to the Buxton Opera House stage on Monday November 25, by Poonamallee Productions (the creators of the smash hit Private Peaceful stage show).

Young Antonito lives an idyllic life on his parents’ cattle farm in southern Spain, when the peace is shattered at the realisation that his favourite bull-calf, brave Paco, is destined to fight in the bullring.

Taking both their destinies into his own hands and risking the lives and love of his family, Antonito hatches a daring plan.

His dream will take enormous courage – because this is 1936, and the drums of civil war are echoing across the Spanish plains.

Originally produced by Salisbury Playhouse and nominated for the TMA Award for Best Show for Young People, Toro! Toro! captures the passion and drama of rapidly growing up in the heat of war.

Recommended for eight years and up, the show has been described by the Sunday Times as ‘a tale of another country and another time that resonates with the here and now’…

The show starts at 7pm and tickets for Toro! Toro! are priced at £12 and discounts are available.
