Halloween has been and gone, and the mis-shapen carved out pumpkins at our windows are soon to be replaced with sparkly lights and christmas trees. Before the merry times begin, families are invited to a party for the Moon’s birthday! December then sees two fabulously festive childrens’ shows as an addition or alternative to the traditional pantomime, including a tasty twist on a beloved fairytale and A Christmas Adventure!
Come to the Moon’s birthday bash at The Civic and join Wriggle Dance Theatre for an enchanting and interactive dance theatre show; Once in a Blue Moon. The audience will get to make a birthday card for the moon before joining the performers on a journey through strange lands, meeting some curious characters along the way. Following their hugely successful Midlands tour, Wriggle Dance Theatre is now touring nationally. An audience member for the Midland Arts Centre commented:
“It’s a fantastic show! … Poetic, magical, heart-warming, imaginative and fun. I couldn’t have wished for a better show for my boy’s first theatre experience!”
During the Christmas school holidays, Topsy Turvy Theatre will take your little audiences on a seasonal adventure like no other. Filled with magical surprises throughout,The Lost Present puppet performance really is the perfect gift for Christmas. Written especially for children aged 3 to 7 and designed to take the stress out of organising the festivities, this highly creative and enriching experience tells the enchanting tale of true friendship. It’s Christmas Eve, and Elva sets out on a journey to find her best friend. Can the lost present find her way through the cold winter night? Will she arrive in time for Christmas morning? Come to The Civic and find out!
