Ernie And The Sea Of Ice
Relaxed Performance

Relaxed performance: An informal environment where everyone can relax and enjoy the show without having to worry about making a noise or moving around. For audiences including, but not exclusive to, children and adults with an Autistic Spectrum Condition or learning disability.

SIGNED PEFORMANCE: A BSL sign language interpreted performance will also be available on Thu 22 Dec at 2pm.

‘We all had a fantastic time, and both our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  I spent a lot of the performance just watching their faces because they were so animated and engaged!  Being a relaxed performance definitely helped a great deal as well – we felt under no pressure to make our son conform to the ‘norms’ of theatre going, and having the actors introduce themselves at the start was a good way of demystifying the experience.’

We know things don’t always go to plan on the day, so we’ve set up an offer designed to take the pressure off. Book in advance and we’ll refund you the cost of your tickets if you can’t make the show on the day, or are unable to stay for the performance. Our only condition is that you ring us before the start of the performance if you can’t make it.

Quirk Theatre & Exeter Phoenix Present

Ernie And The Sea Of Ice

Suitable for adventurers over 5

Following the rip-roaring success of The King With Donkey’s Ears, Quirk Theatre and Exeter Phoenix present their fourteenth annual Christmas show, bringing original music and innovative and highly entertaining live theatre to nearly four thousand people at Christmas time.

Join us, 100 years after Ernest Shackleton’s famous expedition, and follow in the great man’s footsteps with a wonderfully silly and exceptionally inventive tale for all the family.

Setting off on the good ship Endurance with a brave crew, Ernie’s dream comes true – an adventure across the ice to the frozen world of Antarctica. Battling through huge seas and snow storms until…CRACK! The ship gets stuck in the ice. An unbelievable tale of derring-do, pure determination, penguins and Great British spirit!
