Ophelia and The Mushjangler fish will be visiting Wintertide festival this year to tell festival goers the tale of ‘The Rime of The Submerged Forest.
This new folk tale and song was devised for Waterfront Festival by the Young People of the ‘Stand Together’ group who meet at Throston Youth Club with Hartlepool youth Services. The young people were mentored by a group of local artists, brought together by Jack of Hearts CIC. The artists involved in developing the story, characters and song are; Over The Winks, Mandascat, Michael Turnbull & Brian Barnes.
The Roles of Ophelia, protector of the Submerged Forest and The Mushjangler fish are played by Vicky Jackson and Paul Sanders.
