Little Angel Theatre Announces Easter Activities For Children And Families

Little Angel Theatre Announces Easter Activities  For Children And Families

Little Angel Theatre’s presents a digital production of Where the Bugaboo Lives running throughout the Easter holidays until 2 May. The popular interactive story by Sean Taylor (writer behind Little Angel Theatre’s Finding Santa) and Neal Layton is brought to life in Little Angel’s first made-for-zoom, style show for 5-11 year olds directed by artistic director Samantha Lane and designed by Ellie Mills. Young audiences ‘choose their own adventure’ while they watch, deciding which path the characters will take.

Floyd and his sister Ruby creep into the dark, shadowy valley behind their house… a valley full of all kinds of spooky, creepy creatures and the scariest of them all, the Bugaboo! Join Floyd and Ruby at every step of their journey, as you decide which path they take and what monsters they meet.

Meet a family of zany Eggs on Legs, living in a lost pocket of the globe. One day the wind blows a huge egg into their tree and they are excited to play with it. But what happens if it hatches and can they protect it from the slithery snake?

Garlic Theatre conjures a poetic, Dr Seuss world full of eggcentric puppets and music to make you roll around with laughter. A cracking family show bursting with wonder and surprise – you will never look at an egg in the same way again.

Each performance will include an eggciting post-show workshop of around 15 minutes to get you in the mood for Easter.
