It's 1929, and Wendy and the Lost Boys have all grown up when strange dreams begin to seep out of Neverland. Pirates and mermaids, war paint and crocodiles - the dreams tell them that something must be wrong, and their friend Peter Pan needs their help. So Wendy and the Lost Boys put on their children's clothes and, armed only with fairy dust, fly back to Neverland for one last adventure.
Geppetto, the old wood carver, sets to work making a puppet out of an old piece of wood. But something magical happens. The puppet comes to life! This is the tale of the mischievous and cheeky Pinocchio. No matter how hard he tries to be good, he just keeps getting in to trouble. And he can't hide the fact that he's telling tales because his nose gives him away by growing longer and longer.
Geppetto uses the objects of a carpenter's workshop to tell the tale of the puppet that wants to be a real boy, and the puppet-maker who wants to be a real father. Puppetry, shadows, illusion and especially composed music combine to create a show with something for all ages; it's inventive, visually and verbally witty with a big heart. Pinocchio is carved on stage, brushes become a fox and the shadow of two saws transforms into a giant shark. An element of improvisation makes each performance unique to its audience. Award winning Indefinite Articles are at the forefront of the new wave of British puppetry and its members have worked with the RSC Improbable Theatre and the Mighty Boosh.
Everyone is different. Everyone is perfect. A beautiful story about new beginnings and making friends, set in the land of forests and snow... Mia has come to live with her Grandma, far away from where she was born. It isn't at all like her old life in the city, and at first she feels very different from the new children she sees. But when she watches the snow falling around her one night, Mia realises that she is just like one of the snowflakes - unique and perfect in her own way.
Come and hear the enchanting, mysterious and hair-raising stories of Magnificent Mount Iwate who blew hot and cold, the humble woodcutter and his beautiful but strange bride, and the snorting burping Ogre of Rashomon Gate.
