Chicken Licken

Chicken Licken

  • 26 September 2015 11am-12pm, 2-3pm

A baby chick is born and thinks the sky is falling down. On the way to tell the King, she meets Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky & Turkey Lurkey, but there’s a shocking surprise! Chicken Licken grows up to be the Little Red Hen and asks her friends to help her make bread, but no one wants to play! Mixed into this recipe of food, puppets and music is the story of Little Red Hen and the sly Foxy Loxy. Will she outwit him and save her stuffing?

DNA Puppetry and Visual Theatre is a world-renowned English/Australian company celebrating 21 years of making theatre for young and old. Their lively and witty adaptation of classic barnyard tales will have anyone over the age of three chuckling with delight.

Our Teacher’s a Troll

Our Teacher’s a Troll

  • 15 November 2015 2-3pm, 5-6pm

Two terrible twins with a talent for turmoil rule their school with terror and tyranny. That is, until the arrival of a new head teacher with green scaly skin, sharp gnarly fangs, and a long spiky tail… Can the twins save the school from the child-eating Troll? Can they get Brussels sprouts in peanut butter taken off the lunch menu? And most importantly, can naughtiness prevail? From Dennis Kelly, the writer of award-winning West End show Matilda the Musical, this is an exciting collaboration between Paines Plough and Half Moon Theatre, fresh from its success this summer at London’s Southbank Centre, Brighton Festival and Edinburgh Fringe 2015.

“Fun, funny and unpatronising. Comic perfection.”
★★★★ The Times

“All of the wit, grotesque humour and naughtiness of Dahl’s best”
★★★★ WhatsOnStage

Suitable for

  • Family friendly
  • Especially for children

Admission
