Miki

Christmas 2017

Miki, Polar Bear and Penguin live in a very far away place. It’s an icy world where nothing ever grows. One midwinter eve, they make a wish, and Miki embarks on a magical adventure…in search of a star.

Based on the book by Stephen Mackey, Miki is an inspiring story about friendship, courage and adventure. It features amazing underwater creatures, songs to sing along to and extraordinary puppetry.

'Young audiences giggle with delight, totally transfixed' The Stage

This hit show returns to the Courtyard Theatre stage after its debut at Norden Farm for Christmas 2011. Miki is created by Slot Machine, the company that have previously brought enchanting Christmas shows One Snowy Night and Kipper's Snowy Day to our stage.

Suitable for ages 3+ years.

£13.50 (£11.50 Under 16s)
Family & Friends (4 people) £46

Earlybird offer: £40 Family & Friends ticket if booked before Thursday 31 August

Presented by Norden Farm and Slot Machine in association with Fresh Glory Productions.

The Regina Monologues

by Rebecca Russell and Jenny Wafer.

‘Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived...’
The six wives of Henry VIII are brought into the 21st century when six very different women also marry the same man. Miscarriage, love affairs and betrayal ensue - and a shared loathing of all things ginger!

“…extremely funny and tear to the eye poignant, changing in the space of seconds ... I found it to be a thoroughly entertaining evening that just "works" - Katy Lewis, BBC


WHY? The plight of these women reflects the experiences their sixteenth century counterparts and is portrayed with humour, pathos and a great deal of wine!

£12 (£10 conc)

Presented by Maidenhead Drama Guild
