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.

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.

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.
