Journey of the Magi: Presented by Springs Dance company at Great Walstead School on Saturday 10th December at 7.30pm. This show which is an inspirational evening of dance, music and theatre has been the Company’s most popular performance to date. Inspired by the poem by T.S.Eliot the performance helps audiences to reflect not only on the famous journey the wise men made following the star to Jesus but also the journey each of us makes every year in preparing for Xmas Day. The show is an ingenious mix of dance and theatre enjoyed by children and adults alike. A mix of laugh-out-loud funny, moving and entertaining scenes explore images in the poem to bring the Xmas story to life. The show not only entertains but also provokes consideration for change.
