‘We all had a fantastic time, and both our children thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  I spent a lot of the performance just watching their faces because they were so animated and engaged!  Being a relaxed performance definitely helped a great deal as well – we felt under no pressure to make our son conform to the ‘norms’ of theatre going, and having the actors introduce themselves at the start was a good way of demystifying the experience.’



Theatre Alibi

The Boy Who Climbed Into The Moon

By David Almondadapted by Daniel Jamieson

Some pretty odd ideas are floating around Paul’s street. There’s Mabel, whose brother hides under a brown paper bag. And Clarence the poodle who thinks he can fly. But Paul has the oddest idea of all. He thinks that the moon is a big hole in the sky and he’s going to climb into it…

Anything’s possible in this warm and very funny story by David Almond, award-winning author of Skellig and My Dad’s A Birdman.

‘Children’s theatre doesn’t come much better than this’

‘I laughed until I had hiccups’
