Molly wants to be just like the grown-ups. So her mummy makes her a moustache. With her moustache she can go anywhere and do anything she likes. She can launch an expedition to the heart of the jungle, blast off into space and create incredible inventions. But being a grown up isn't all fun. What if Molly has to eat olives and spicy sauce? And what about having to go to work? Featuring an original music score, playful interaction and lots of laughs, Molly's Marvellous Moustache is a new theatrical adaptation of the original storybook, written by Andrea Heaton and illustrated by Talya Baldwin.

'Right, so if a gang of naughty, bad and ferocious misfits decided to kidnap the Spirit of Christmas, where would they stash her? ?Exactly. In a castle. And there's only one castle in Manchester, and some fool decided to put a theatre in it. You should never put a theatre in a castle, it's too dangerous. ?So what are you waiting for? Are you going to come and rescue me or what?' Starting outside the main doors of Contact, and roaming throughout our unique castle-y building, The Siege of Christmas is a theatrical adventure for young audiences and the taller people that look after them. It is made by the award-winning Contact Young Company and Slung Low who made the brilliant 59 Minutes to Save Christmas, and the acclaimed Camelot: The Shining City.
