Families are in for a treat over the next month with three fabulous shows designed to introduce young children to the delights of live theatre.
First on stage is Cardboard Joe and The Book of Mysteries on Saturday 24 September at 2pm. This new, fun-filled family from 154 Collective follows the adventures of thicker-than-paper but thinner-than-wood hero Joe (pictured) and his friends. Every show will be different as the young audience and Joe make up the story together; then they will get to see all their ideas brought to life using real-time live animation.
The second event is Penguin! Elephant! on Sunday 2 October at 2pm. With original songs, hilarious physical comedy and dance, this new show from Goblin Theatre Company is about celebrating differences. It includes a rap about fish fingers, some food-based mess and a magical balloon ride that will have children aged 3 and upwards jumping for joy.
Last of the trio is Little Frankenstein on Saturday 22 October at 2pm. This little horror for little horrors from Lempen Puppet Theatre Company will tickle the imagination of everyone from 5 years and above. Taking inspiration from the scientist Dr Frankenstein, puppeteer Frank Stein - with the help of the audience - creates a new, real-life puppet that is destined to change his life forever.
Tickets for all three shows are £10 each (includes £1 restoration levy) and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via the online booking service on this website.
