Theatre

This Summer we have theatre which explores all kind of mother-child relationships. Early years’ show ‘Inside’ asks what was it like in Mummy’s Tummy? ‘MatildaMatilda’ – a jazz, puppetry adventure – is performed by SoapSoup Theatre, a mother and daughter team. Finally in contrast, comedy theatre show for adults ‘How To Be Amazingly Happy!’ looks at life when kids and and being ‘happily ever after’ aren’t on the cards.
