SALISBURY Playhouse has a variety of plays and activities in its Salberg studio to keep families entertained during half-term.

On Tuesday 17th February audiences can join fearless orphan Daniel Dorey in Grisly Tales from Tumblewater. Based on the deliciously dark novel by Bruno Vincent, this is a high-energy adventure full of laughs, frights and live music for 8s and over.

Adapted from the classic Hans Christian Andersen story, The Snow Queen is a musical play set in a fairytale world of magical beings – a world where strange things can happen to anybody. Suitable for ages four and over, The Snow Queen is in the Salberg on Thursday 20th February.

In the stage adaptation of Anne Fine’s Care of Henry, Hugo must choose who to stay with whilst his mother is having a baby. There are a lot of things to consider, such as who will allow the best TV, the deepest baths, the best food. And most importantly, there’s Hugo’s dog, Henry. Care of Henry will be in Salisbury on Friday 21 February and is aimed four to eight-year-olds.

For those who fancy taking to the stage themselves, Plays in a Day offer young people the chance to work with directors and technicians to make a special show. Children aged 5 to 7 can explore Dinosaur Island on Monday 17th February while 8 to 10-year-olds can take part in Pirate Adventure on Wednesday 19th February.
