Le Mystère de St Denis rehearsals
TSF's latest French language schools' production is a spine-chilling adventure for 12-15 year olds, set on the fictional French-speaking Caribbean island of St Denis. This video was taken when the show was presented to a local school after just one week of development so the production is very much work in progress. Rehearsals will continue at the beginning of January with the show touring schools in the north east of England 27 January through to 14 February 2014.

Le Moulin Magique
Excerpts from Le Moulin Magique, TSF's adaptation of Breton folk tales told in simple French. The Mill does not turn. The Land is barren. The dastardly landlord demands rent. Jean-Pierre, the poor miller, appeals to the Wind and the Rain for help. A fantastical journey, strange weather, magic and mischief ensue. A fable for our times of resilience and generosity overcoming greed and the bad guy getting his just desserts! Very visual with lots of comedy and live music. Suitable for children aged 8-12 years, their families, friends, teachers and anyone just learning French. Makes a great family show!
