A tale about a little boy in a very sticky situation; his kite is stuck in a tree.
What do you do when you hear a strange munching noise inside a piano?
He throws up his shoe to shift it, but that gets stuck, he throws his other shoe and that gets stuck too. Along with the cat, a ladder, a pot of paint, the kitchen sink, an orangutan and a whale. Will he ever get his kite back?
Call the Piano Doctor of course. He might be able to help with his bag full of ears and his collection of weird and wonderful tools. Starring puppets, clowning, animation and a very highly strung monster indeed.

Once, there were two shoemakers who were very old and very poor, so poor they couldn’t even afford to buy Christmas presents for each other. But one Christmas Eve, two little elves decided to spread a little bit of magic which would make a whole lot of difference. Contains live music, puppetry, physical storytelling and a sprinkling of elf magic.
This December join Bryony and friends as they battle to build the perfect family Christmas show… from scratch. Armed with old instruments, an insanely festive wardrobe and lots of cardboard, the whimsical crew invite you and your family to escape the sprouts for a riotous celebration of all the joys and terrors of the holidays… you may even find the true meaning of Christmas along the way!
