Rhubarb Theatre

6th August, The Shambles at the Old Town Hall 2:30 – 4:00pm

Get into the summer holiday mood with two fun shows from children’s touring theatre ‘Rhubarb’ featuring:

3 SUITCASES A fantastical and funny short family show about 3 quirky characters that meet by chance at a train station. Where is the train? Will it arrive?  As time tick-tocks onwards the 3 accidental companions become more and more playful, passing the time in adventurous and exciting ways – who knows what might happen next?

THE BIG DIPPERS Sand, seagulls and a magical beach hut? This is no ordinary day at the seaside…

Our vivacious Victorian paddlers are all at sea for some slapstick adventure and summertime fun. See Rhubarb’s bathing buddies take the plunge, sort their swimwear, practice some strokes and try to avoid the sharks! Making a big splash, they’ll surf the waves of adventure and dive deep into hi-jinks and hilarity.

Grab your bucket and spade and hold onto your swim-hats as The Big Dippers set off on their splendid seaside adventures!

Suitable for all ages,  live performances with character interaction, mime, physical theatre, music and laughter we connect to a broad audience.
