Moonbrella - a new theatre experience for the very young

This is a multi-sensory theatre piece created for very young children and their carers. Moonbrella charts the story of a brave umbrella who is whisked away to the moon and the boy who sets out to bring his best friend, his umbrella, back home. This production features plenty of interactive moments for the children and includes songs, sounds, signing, silliness and many, many umbrellas! The show is approximately 35 mins with discover, play and explore time afterwards. The setting is informal, most seating is on the floor, children are welcome to wriggle around & feel comfortable. The show is suitable for 18 mths to 5yrs. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
