The Magic Chicken

Chooks of the World!

by Theatre Beating

Make your own chicken with Jim and Liz. It may not cluck or lay eggs, but it will be as funny and as cool as you make it.

Devour a slapstick treat of culinary chaos! Two underlectual chefs in a Seussian kitchen cook up a hilarious concoction of punk-panto physical comedy, live music and puppetry. As our half-baked heroes juggle pots, knives and snarling customers, their lives are interrupted by a mysterious feathered friend. The orders are coming thick and fast, but can our dumb waiters stop the caper from turning to custard?

Join us for a hilarious mix of magic, mime and music with slapstick humour and puppetry. A riot for both kids and adults alike.

ALL GONE! by Pocketfool

Pocket Pets

The people and things we love have a habit of disappearing. Do we ever get used to loss? Finishing a bowl of mashed banana, saying goodbye to Grandma, cleaning up spills and misplacing socks can be summed up by a child in two words – “All gone!”

Make your very own pocket pet to take everywhere. These colourful furry critters are cheap to feed, don’t bite and love pats. You’ll never be lonely again.

As one of Pocketfool’s best loved shows, this intimate, visual and very funny performance perfectly captures the baffling and playful world of very young children.
