Princess Charming

Some girls like football. Some boys like pink. Everyone likes a good story. Exploring gender stereotypes in a fun, questioning way, Princess Charming is a celebration of being exactly who you are.

This show is for anyone who doesn’t like being told what to do and is about finding the courage to defy expectations.

Cabaret performers explore what really matters about being a boy and being a girl with dances, songs and skits created with children, for children.

The theatre is transformed into a family friendly cabaret club full of laughter and sing-a-longs. Join in at the end as the next generation of cabaret stars take over the stage.

Suitable for ages 6 – 11 years.

WHY? ‘Pertinent and powerful, but most of all it’s extremely fun! Princess Charming teaches kids (and adults) that they can just be themselves’ A Younger Theatre

‘A hilarious, touching and truthful performance with a powerful, important message’ ★★★★ Female Arts

‘An absolute gem of a show. Exploring gender stereotypes using the very clever medium of a cabaret.. it is entertaining, informative (though never preachy) and vitally, incredibly relevant’ ★★★★★ WestEnd Wilma

Studio
£10 (£8 under 16s)
Family and Friends (4 people) £32

Tickets/seats are not required for children under 18 months who are happy to sit on laps.

Age guidance: 3 – 7 years.

WHY? A highly visual show and non-verbal work for young and hearing impaired audiences

Snow White Rose Red Bear Brown

Snow White and Rose Red are sisters, twins, best friends. They have lived in the forest since they were Babes in the Wood. Not as worldly wise as their Mother would have liked, they are nonetheless, kind, caring and sometimes a little over enthusiastic in their deeds!

When their quiet life is interrupted by a friendly bear a new chapter begins. But why has the bear chosen them as playfellows? Why is there sadness in his eyes? And who on earth is that rude little man with a ridiculously long beard that they keep bumping in to?

Suitable for ages 5+ years.

WHY? A new show from the Woods of Widdershins, using puppets, storytelling, original music and a fantastical fairytale forest

The Fir Tree

by Tove Jansson

From Tales in Moominvalley

The Moomin family was hibernating in the drawing room as they were wont to do. They had been sleeping for a few months already and were going to keep it up until spring… Now all at once a cold draught disturbed Moomintroll’s dreams. And someone was pulling at his quilt and shouting that he was tired and Christmas was coming.

Featuring live puppetry and music, The Fir Tree is an adventure set in the idyllic and peaceful Moominvalley. It is a gloriously unselfish take on Christmas.

Suitable for all audiences from 3 years and upwards.

Presented by Norden Farm, The Ding Foundation, Bernadette Russell and Steve Tiplady.

Tuesday 20 November – Sunday 30 December

£13.50 (£11.50 under 16s)

Early Bird Offer! £40 Family & Friends ticket (4 people), if booked before Friday 31 August. Offer applied in basket.
£46 Family and Friends (4 people) after Friday 31 August.
