Christopher Nibble, 10th April, 14:00
The guinea pigs of Dandeville love munching dandelion leaves so much that slowly but surely dandelions are disappearing from all over town. Christopher Nibble knows that crunch time has come when there is just one dandelion left – but will this plucky little guinea pig have the flower power to save the day? Written especially for children aged 2-7 (and their big people too) and told with Topsy Turvy Theatre’s own blend of energetic storytelling, handmade puppets, original music and stunning scenery, Christopher Nibble is an uplifting story of one guinea pig’s selfless undertaking to help halt the disappearance of the delicious dandelion forever!
Stuff, 26th May, 20:00
Stuff is a love story but not one you’ve seen a million times before, this is another kind of love story, maybe everybody’s love story. Stuff is playful, funny, sad and familiar. Lead clown for Cirque du Soleil, Sean Kempton, mixes comedy, mime, clowning and the odd bit of dance in this absurdist show about love… The result is a highly energetic and entertaining, physical piece that takes its audience on a journey through the fragility, hilarity and awkwardness that love can sometimes entail.
