Climb That Tree
Date: 9th December 2017
Details:  David Gibb is on a one-man mission to make brilliant, engaging and high quality music for families and children. Climb That Tree is the brand musical stages show from award-winning songwriter and musician David Gibb.

Join David on a musical journey through his hilarious and often surreal imagination, where bears live in the cupboard under the stairs, wolves are roaming the corridors at school, and trips to the moon are a regular occurrence.

Climb That Tree builds on the success of David’s last show Letters Through Your Door which had families across the UK singing (quite literally!) its praises. David’s songwriting draws from a wide range of musical influences, deftly blending folk, jazz, reggae and rock and roll, always with an emphasis on quality and musicianship reminiscent of the classics.

Guaranteed to have both parents and children singing along in no time, this is music that the whole family can enjoy together.

“prepare to be carried away with the music…packed full of catchy, toe tapping numbers.” The Guardian

Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf
Date: 11th February 2018
Details:  Presented by Unity Theatre and Action Transport Theatre

A small figure sets off, with red cloak and hood
to grandmas they go, the other side of the woods

Do not stop to smell the flowers, or sing to the birds
or climb a tall tree, remember these words…

Do not leave the path, for you’d make a tasty treat!
For the hungriest wolf of all, who is ready to eat!

Join us for a bold and highly theatrical re-telling of the well-known classic tale packed with music, dance and song.

The production explores the thrill of adventure and unknown versus the safety and familiarity of the path and how irresistible straying can be, as well as the tension between mankind and nature. Are the wolves really the villains in a world where the woodcutter is destroying the forest? And is Grandma the trophy hunter really sick?

“Perfectly formed… recaptures the art of sharing folktales by the fireside” – The Stage
