Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service, a member of the West Midlands Arson Task Force, have commissioned the Zip Theatre company from Wolverhampton to perform their very successful arson play "Sparx" in the region.
This successful production aimed at year 8 children is designed to raise awareness of the dangers of malicious fires and the importance of fire safety for young people.
The hard-hitting 45 minute play is followed by a 30 minute workshop, providing an opportunity for students to discuss fire safety issues. The messages of Sparx! are reinforced with contemporary music and original songs and young people are encouraged to take a responsible attitude towards fire safety.
The Zip Theatre Company will start a new tour across the West Midlands on 18th October 2010, visiting 10 schools in Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire.
