A top theatre production aimed at young children is taking to the stage at the end of this month.
Topsy Turvy Theatre presents Christopher Nibble at Junction on Saturday, April 28th.
The brand new musical play, which is touring the country, stars Christopher Nibble and his best friend Posie, who have been busy growing plants and food in their garden while taking care of their six hairy pet caterpillars. But when their crawly comrades disappear, the gardening guinea pigs have to turn detective! Will Christopher and Posie crack the case and bring their caterpillars home to Dandeville… or have they vanished forever?
Topsy Turvey Theatre was set up in 2010 with a desire to create high-quality theatre with meaningful learning opportunities for children. The company tours theatres and schools nationwide and specialises in puppetry and interactive scenery.
The Christopher Nibble show at Junction is full of handmade puppets, original music and stunning scenery and when it finishes at 3.30pm, the fun doesn’t stop there. Straight after, children and their big people will be able to join Topsy Turvy Theatre’s actors to explore how caterpillars transform into butterflies in a practical and fun workshop using drama and dance. It’s a great opportunity for young people to learn more about life cycles and meet some of the puppets from the production.
The show runs for 45 minutes and is perfect for children ages two to seven and their big people too. The show starts at 2pm and tickets are priced at £6.50 for an adult and £5 for a child.
The workshop starts at 3.30pm and tickets for that are £3 – available from the Junction box office on 01405 763652 or online at www.junctiongoole.co.uk
