Choose from 2 brilliant productions this Christmas
Utterly charming and immersive White for all little ones aged between 2-4 offering a fantastic first-time theatre experience for small people and a great festive treat for all.
"An utter delight" - The Times
Full of birdsong and birdhouses, the world of White gleams and dazzles and shines in the night. Two friends look after the birds and make sure the eggs stay safe. All is bright, ordered and very very white… But high up in the trees, something is different. Colours are appearing; not everything is white. First red, then yellow, then blue.
The award-winning and critically acclaimed White, presented by Catherine Wheels and directed by Gill Robertson, is a playful, highly visual and fully immersive show for the very young and a perfect first-time theatre introduction staged in the intimate setting of a white tent. Children sit on bean bags, not chairs, and wandering around the white canvas based set is permissible and actively encouraged!
White runs from 13th to 23rd December for children aged 2-4.
Older children and adults alike are invited to the wonderful world of Dutch Släpstick. Expect musical mayhem, virtuoso musicianship and even flying violins! Winners of the 2017 Edinburgh Spirit of the Fringe Award, Släpstick is an ode to the timeless comedy of Charlie Chaplin, the Marx Brothers, Spike Jones and Laurel & Hardy, but with a very modern twist.
