The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton (approx. 50 mins)
Enid Blyton’s favourite and much-loved stories come to life on stage. When Jo, Fanny and Bessie move to the country they’re amazed to find an enormous tree with many strange lands inhabited by magical characters such as Dame Washalot, Saucepan Man and Moon-face. Pulling from the various books in THE FARAWAY TREE series, you and your children will love this magical show.

The Twits by Roald Dahl (approx. 50 mins)
The delicious creation of Roald Dahl. Mr and Mrs Twit love playing tricks on each other. But then Mr Twit turns his attentions to creating the World’s First Upside-Down Monkey Circus. This mad-cap show encourages the audience to help play their part in freeing Muggle-Wump, the monkey.

TERM THREE 2020 – Greedy Cat by Joy Cowley (approx. 50 mins)
“Greedy Cat sat by the big fridge door. Meow! Meow! Meow! He wanted more.” New Zealand’s most famous cat appears live on stage in a delightful, funny and furry show. Based on many of Joy Cowley’s much-loved early reader books. “Tim Bray and team bring to life author Joy Cowley and illustrator Robin Belton’s Greedy Cat with a production that celebrates feline curiosities and fun; creating a hugely enjoyable (and far more affordable) kids alternative to Lloyd-Webber’s global hit, Cats.” Theatreview review.

TERM FOUR 2020 – The Santa Claus Show ’20 by Tim Bray (approx. 70 mins)
Kelly and Alana are best friends and decide to write to Santa Claus. But Kelly sends the longest list of things that a child wants for Christmas that Santa has ever seen. Santa flies Kelly to the North Pole so she can learn for herself the true meaning of Christmas. Now in it’s 18th year – a magical, traditional Christmas treat.

These shows are aimed at children aged 3 to 8 years but enjoyed by children and adults of all ages!
