Rojo Carnival: Character building
Family Day at Theatre Royal, Bury St Edmunds
How to take part
Turn up at the theatre anytime between 11am and 3pm and make your way to the Greene Room. We’ll be there to meet you.
Step One: Delve into our Lucky Dip to find ideas for your carnival character.
Step Two: Make your character mask with the help of our costume artists.
Step Three: Get into character, put on your mask and leave your autograph and unique hand drawing on the wall of fame. Don’t forget to pose for the paparazzi as you head towards the stage door.
Step Four: Make your way onto the theatre stage. Our dresser will help you find a costume to complete your look.
Step Five: You will be greeted by our carnival animateur who will help you develop your character’s own dance move. While you’re on stage, look for the appearance of your giant masked photo on the backdrop.
Then suddenly it’s carnival time! House lights dim; stage lights on; cue music, dancing and a carnival procession around the theatre.
Carnival processions will take place at 12, 1, 2 and 3pm. Arrive earlier to get ready.
