The Elves and the Shoemaker

Elvis Schumacher, cobbler and craftsman, has worked all his life creating the most beautiful footwear.

Jack and the Beanstalk

Fee Fi Fo Fum! It’s a giant of a show, we’d love you to come!

This classic fairytale now gets the Lyngo treatment so expect lots of surprises and beautiful images as Patrick Lynch (from Cbeebies) tells the gripping story of Jack who sells his cow for 5 magic beans and finds himself in the land above the clouds. It’s a show for the over 3’s (and their giants) with something for everyone – enormous shoes, tiny houses, showers of silver and gold and a big, leafy explosion!

The Amazing Bubble Man

Louis Pearl has been thrilling audiences around the world for over 30 years with the art, magic, science and fun of bubbles. He is a favorite at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he has enjoyed twelve years of sell-out success.

Louis explores the breath-taking dynamics of bubbles, combining comedy and artistry with audience participation and enough spellbinding bubble tricks to keep everyone mesmerized. From square bubbles, bubbles inside bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, giant bubbles, bubble volcanoes, tornados and trampolines to people inside bubbles, the Amazing Bubble Man conjures shrieks of laughter and gasps of amazement from all ages. 

Most shows will also feature multi instrumentalist Jet Black Pearl accompanying Louis with bubbly music to double your pleasure.

Greatest bubble show on Earth SFGate.com

 It's a fantastic show. Louis Pearl playfully forms bubbles beyond imagination, and engages the audience with his easygoing nonverbal slapstick

Louis Pearl - aka The Amazing Bubble Man - truly deserves his title. Most of the show is accompanied by gasps and awes...and that's just the adults. Kids can be heard giggling with excitement

This show captivated its young audience and the adults loved it as well. Highly recommended British Theater Guide

 The show is one giant, joyous caper The Wee Review

 The eight year-old seated beside this reviewer summed it up neatly during the show, proclaiming after one nifty manoeuvre, ‘he sure is the amazing bubble man The Wee Review
