Captain Safety Roadshow
BEDFORD BOROUGH COUNCIL ARE
PROUD TO PRESENT: THE CAPTAIN SAFETY ROAD SHOW 2011
Captain Safety and his band of merry helpers will be in residence
at the Civic Theatre, Bedford for the week commencing 24th January
Performing to hundreds of local school children throughout the
week, Captain Safety will be capturing children’s interest and
imagination while delivering important road safety messages.
Captain Safety is a superhero, who is woken from his sleep to
help children learn how to deal with crossing the road. Joining him
in this crusade is Billy, a young boy who didn’t heed the warnings
of busy roads and has been injured; his message is a simple one,
“Don’t be like me – always remember the Green Cross Code.”
The show runs twice a day from Monday 24th – Friday 28th January
at 11am and 1pm. Every lower school in the borough has been invited
with transport provided meaning hundreds of 7-9 year olds will be
able to join in with the Captain Safety Road Show 2011.
Councillor Charles Royden, Portfolio Holder for Transport, said:
“The Captain Safety Road Show teaches extremely important messages
but in a way children can relate to and get involved with. It uses
special effects, music and encourages the audience to get involved
with the show.
“Road safety is a vitally important message and this fun and
energetic show will help us to encourage our young people to take a
safe and responsible attitude towards road safety.”
Audience participation is an integral part of the show and
encourages the children to take the safety messages on board. They
are taught a road safety rap and also encouraged to stomp, clap and
make plenty of noise!
They will also get to meet the show’s baddie, Jimmy White Board,
a magical marker board that comes to life as well as Jemima the
ostrich who has plenty of fun messages.
