Christmas shows for kids (5-8 years)
David Wood, who's famed for a 40-year strong career adapting kids' classics, has written this new version of Dick King Smith's 'Babe' for the Polka Theatre. It's the story of an adorable piglet who discovers a rare talent for sheep-herding, and leads his gruff farmer to an unlikely kind of celebrity. This farmyard tale will be adapted using original songs and puppetry, in a show suitable for the whole family.
Iris has a brand new friend, but she knows her family and friends won't love him quite as much as she does. This story of a girl trying to hide a lion in all sorts of devious ways is adapted by Peter Glanville from Helen Stephen's children's story, and will feature songs by singer-songwriter Barb Jungr. There are two versions: one for todders ages 1-2, and another for kids ages 3-6. Check the Polka Theatre website for full details.
