Twinkle Twinkle (12:30pm Performance)
Date: 29th April 2018
Details:  There are melodies that live in all of us. No one knows that more than Marty the puppy, whose songs and playtime with his Dad are the best part of his day.

But sometimes, you have to learn how to find the music inside yourself. Twinkle Twinkle is a beautiful adventure in music and light that features high quality puppetry, magical interaction and a gorgeous original score with live music-making for all.

This original tale of love, loss and light has been especially made for audiences aged 1 – 3 and its rich, near-wordless storytelling entrances toddlers and parents alike.

Developed in association with Tonic Theatre award-winner, Anna Newell, this third production for young audiences by Touched Theatre continues the company’s commitment to making emotionally literate original theatre for children.

Twinkle Twinkle takes the classic nursery rhyme and uses its ideas of melody and distance to explore resilience for the very young and the ways we can learn to carry the light of those we love inside ourselves, even when we are apart.

Doors for this event open at 12pm and the performance starts at 12:30pm.

£7/£5
