Four Treasures is a theatre production by Prism Arts Studio Theatre.
Four Treasures is made up of four stories, The Princess and the Sun, Birdsong, Golden Ocean and The Lotus Flower. Each story centres on one of four themes (faith, trust, honesty and truth), and explores what makes them ‘treasures.’ Influenced by Indian culture and folk tales it is an entrancing performance which uses live acting, puppetry and live music.
“The puppets, scenery and all props were brilliant. The musicians and narrators very professional and a great story. I truly wonderful afternoon. A very moving performance by truly wonderful talented people with great passion for their work. Well done!!!” – Audience member at Old Fire Station
Prism Arts Studio Theatre toured this theatre production to the Old Fire Station, Carlisle and Theatre by the Lake, Keswick in Feb 2019.
Prism Arts Studio Theatre, based in Carlisle, is an integrated company where adults with learning disabilities and professional artists work in partnership.
They create their productions in their entirety with the process taking about a year. They begin with research, then design and create the sets, puppets and costumes. They then write the script, add music and rehearse before finally taking it on tour.
“It is great to share a year’s hard work with the public.” – Jonathan, Prism Arts Studio Theatre member.
