Myth and modern day merge in this piece from Clwyd Theatr Cymru about a young boy in a quest to save his dad. When Freddie receives a text from his father who is fighting in a faraway land, only Freddie can help. Ages 8-14 ages.
This puppet opera is a co-production between Polka Theatre and north London's great puppet theatre and is set on a bleak, craggy island in the very north of the world where a little girl meets a strange creature. Little Angel are famed for their evocative puppetry and this piece by Phil Porter and Martin Ward is directed by the theatre's new artistic director Peter Glanville. Ages 3-6.
Brilliant theatre maker Tim Crouch performs his version of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' as seen through the eyes of Shakespeare's neglected fairy Peaseblossom. Modern and original text blends together in this funny, original show for everyone aged 8+.
Everyone's favourite Swedish/Finnish cartoon creation the Moomins get a stage outing here courtesy of Phil Porter and the Little Angel Theatre. Tove Jansson's original story is adapted by Porter to bring the weird white bear-type creatures to life as puppets in Moominvalley. This looks like a fun, summer-tinged meta-theatrical affair where the Moomins find a new home - a floating theatre - after Moomin valley is swept away by a flood. Ages 4-8.
Lead singer of the late-Sixties great rock band T-Rex Marc Bolan gets the musical treatment in this new show. Fans will be happy that lots of Bolan's songs feature - including 'I Love to Boogie', 'Ride a White Swan' and 'Get It On' - in Peter Rowe's script which tells the tale of the hardcore rocker who died in a car accident in 1977 just before his 30th birthday. The show will be directed and choreographed by 'Thriller Live!' man Gary Lloyd and stars Warren Sollars as Bolan, Sue
