Family Theatre Shows

Teddy's Birthday

Saturday 8 April 2023 10am-10.45am
Suitable for ages 6 and under

It's Eddy the Teddy's birthday. He told his best friend Sammy Ragdoll that he'd love a surprise.


Sammy decides to throw a party and to make it a bigger surprise, she pretends to forget his birthday. The plan backfires as Eddy wanders off feeling sorry for himself.

He's wandered off without any breakfast and is soon hungry. Jack blackbird, Pat the Dog and Robert the Frog offer him a worm, a bone and some flies but these don't appeal. What makes matters worse, is that he's now lost.
Meanwhile Sammy is searching for Eddy to get him to the party and give him some honey for his present. Will she find him in time?

The show uses many elements of theatre, mime, puppetry and songs to join in with. It's a perfect introduction to live entertainment for children who've never been to a show before, and a welcome return for Eddy the Teddy's young fans.
£5.50 per child
Children must be accompanied by an adult (no charge per accompanying adult).

Dr Dolittle

Saturday 8 April 2023 11.30am-12.30pm
Suitable for ages 5 to 10 years

Dr. Dolittle, the vet with an extra-special skill, has captured the minds and hearts of families around the world since Hugh Lofting first created the timeless character while writing home to his children from the trenches during the first world war.

In this adventure, Dr Doolittle is called on to help cure an outbreak of disease among the monkeys in Africa. He heads off on a long and perilous journey with his trusty dog Jip, his parrot Polynesia, and his monkey Chee Chee.

And then- Oh no! He gets shipwrecked and captured! Will he ever get to help those monkeys? Come along to find out!
