Theatre for Pre-Schoolers The theatre can be a magical place for children. But taking young children to the theatre can be daunting; will they enjoy it; will they sit through it all; will you end up making an accidental cameo running after your child? Thankfully there are some great shows out there, designed as the ideal introduction to theatre for pre-schoolers. Here are our top picks of shows touring the country right now! Stick Man This duo receive God-Like status in the Bubele household. Last year Stick Man received rave reviews from parents and children alike, so The Scamp Theatre are touring this moving story of a Stick Man trying to get home to his family, again this autumn. Already confirmed for Dunfermline, Blackburn and Newcastle theatres, more dates are expected to be released in the near future. Duration: Approx 55 mns The Scarecrow Wedding Another favourite from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Betty O’Barley and Harry O’Hay are scarecrows. Harry loves Betty, and Betty loves Harry, so they decide to get married. Join Harry on his search for wedding day essentials, meeting a host of characters along the way. All the while Betty is fending off the dastardly Reginald Rake. Catch the show in your local theatre between May and August 2017. The trailer can be found here. Duration: Approx 60 mins The Hungry Caterpillar Show A visual masterpiece this show includes over 75 brightly coloured and imaginatively designed puppets, and tells the story of not only the Very Hungry Caterpillar, but 3 other of Eric Carle’s classic books.
