Children’s Theatre for Half Term break – You’ve Got Dragons (Alexander Centre) & Spooky Stories Evening (Arden Theatre)
Taking Flight Theatre Company present 'You’ve Got Dragons' based on the book by Kathryn Cave & devised by Elise Davison. ‘Dragons come when you least expect it. You turn ‘round… and they’re there.’ Lots of people get them: bad dreams, swirly tummy, feeling prickly. And sometimes they make you feel alone. So, what can a young child with a bad case of the dragons do?
A delightful tale of one child’s journey to come to terms with their dragons told in Taking Flight’s unique style. With live, original music, this highly visual, sensitive production is a humorous and touching exploration of the dragons we all face.
All performances are relaxed & approx. 50 minutes long. Age recommendation: 3-10 and families; babes in arms welcome.
Spooky Stories Evening at the Arden Theatre is on at 5:30 pm on 30th October.
A pre – Halloween trick or treat evening of spooky stories for young and not so young. See https://ardentheatre.co.uk/ for more information.
