Sammy And The Snow Leopard
Date: 23rd April 2017
Details:  Sammy is 9 years old and likes animals. No...he LOVES animals. The problem is his Mum won't let him have any pets. But when his best friend Hokey Pokey tells him about the 'Adopt a Snow Leopard' programme, Sammy reckons he's found a way to have a pet that doesn't actually come to the house. Perfect! But then Sammy gets an unexpected gift – and finds himself on an adventure that quickly spirals out of control…

This is a high-energy show involving stuffed animals, evil neighbours, school projects and limes, that will enchant everyone over 5.

Dough!
Date: 29th April 2017
Details:  Dough! explores how life can be filled with colour and beauty when we step outside the beige world we know.

Franky is in a mess, a very doughy mess. Unable to resolve the chaos in her kitchen she has to make a journey to an unfamiliar place to get help. Everything tastes, smells and feels different there.

Fantastic things can happen with ordinary stuff. And what could be more ordinary than the dough that makes our everyday staples. Familiar to all cultures, dough creates the loaves, naan bread, croissants, dumplings and chapattis that remind us of home.

Originally commissioned through Made To Be Seen from Creative Scene, the Creative People and Places project for North Kirklees.

Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony upstairs.

Doors: 2:00pm
