Silly Squirrel

12pm | 1pm | 2pm

Deep in the woods on the big oak tree, lives a little squirrel with big ideas. This is Silly Squirrel. Silly Squirrel has never left the tree but longs to explore! So, before the other squirrels are awake, Silly Squirrel conducts a plan, to go on their biggest adventure yet!

I wonder who they will meet and what they will find out along the way?

With puppets, gentle interaction and lots of laughs! This is the perfect introduction to theatre for ages 0-7.

The Musicians of Bremen – The Popera House

12:30pm | 1:30pm

The Musicians of Bremen is The Popera House’s very own folk musical. It’s an interactive music show for family audiences. Based on the Grimm Brothers tale of four abandoned animals seeking a new life, the show celebrates the musical potential of everyone. The animals; donkey, dog, cat and rooster, all decide to go to Bremen together to become musicians. After a scary experience with a wicked robber, they abandon their quest and instead resolve to live as musicians together in the forest.

It’s a joyful tale with some great dramatic characters brought to life with life-sized puppets. The show is performed in The Bluebirds Theatre Company pop-up mobile theatre, The Popera House.
