GARLIC THEATRE OLD MOTHER HUBBARD AND HER CUPBOARD

GONZO MOOSE THEATRE THE THING THAT CAME FROM OVER THERE!

This fabulous retelling of the classic nursery rhyme, of a dotty old woman and her dancing dog, is a real delight and comes with a clutch of rave reviews. Featuring exquisite puppetry, pantomime, slapstick, interaction, musical treats and the occasional scare (in a good way), this terrific show is an ideal first theatrical experience for young children.

This critically acclaimed comedy-theatre trio delivers a crazy, enormously inventive and devilishly funny 1950's horror movie spoof. As Scott and Amundsen begin their 1912 race to the South Pole, the hapless explorer Captain Reginald Cranston investigates a crashed meteor, unaware of the ancient evil that awaits him. A night of shocks, bloodcurdling terror, hilariously gruesome deaths and glorious, unadulterated, spine tingling silliness.

‘A fascinating new dramatization demonstrating Garlic's flair for comedy.’ Time Out Ages: 3-8 Old Mother Hubbard is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
