A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad)

There are no scheduled instances of A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad). You can view similar events below.

Presented by Silent Uproar.

A hilarious cabaret musical about depression that explains, sings and throws glitter about how it’s OK not to be OK. Sally’s a happy person. She doesn’t let little things get her down and she almost never cries. But she’s got an illness. It makes her feel like she isn’t the person she wants to be, but she doesn’t want anyone to know about it.

It’s joyful, buoyant, gleeful, slightly silly, sugar coated, unrelenting and completely super happy! (Except for all the bits about depression).

Written by Jon Brittain (Olivier Award-winning Rotterdam), with music by Frisky and Mannish’s Matthew Floyd Jones. Winner of a 2017 Fringe First and the Musical Theatre Review Best Musical.

Suitable for ages 14+ years.

One Snowy Night

A Tale from Percy’s Park by Nick Butterworth.

One winter's night it was so cold it began to snow
Great big snowflakes fell past the window of Percy's hut…


Percy the Park keeper always feeds the animals in the park where he lives. But one cold winter’s night Percy finds his little friends shivering on the doorstep – they need more than food and he must find a way to help them…

A snuggly, fun and heart-warming story, with songs to sing along to and furry friends to meet.

‘Magical – an ideal introduction to the theatre for children’ ★★★★★ The Stage

Created by Slot Machine, the company that brought the hit Christmas shows Miki and Kipper's Snowy Day to Norden Farm.
