The Alley Theatre has a bumper day of kid’s performances on Saturday 19th October as Barking Dog Theatre Company brings ‘Teddy’s Picnic and ‘Alice in Wonderland’ for an afternoon of fun, song and story.
Starting at 2pm, Teddy’s Picnic is suitable for audiences under 6. Eddy The Teddy and best friend Sammy Ragdoll decide that tomorrow will be just the day for a picnic. Sammy says she’ll have to organise everything because Eddy wouldn’t be able to but Eddy pleads for a chance. Sammy agrees – fearing the worst – but will she be pleasantly surprised? Come along and find out and remember to bring your teddy!
The show uses many elements of theatre, mime, puppetry and songs to join in with. It's a perfect introduction to live entertainment for children who've never been to a show before, and a welcome return for Eddy the Teddy's young fans. Age recommendation - 2-6 years old but all welcome
Next at 3.30pm is the exciting adaptation of one of the most famous books ever - Alice’s Adventure in Wonderland.
It features all the popular Alice characters portrayed by a cast of two talented actors. One plays Alice and the other manically portrays everyone she meets. The classic fairy-tale brought to life using comedy, mime, puppets, music and audience participation. Also expect brand-new catchy sing-along songs composed especially with children in mind, fabulous puppets and lots of surprises.
From the time Alice falls down the rabbit hole to the hilarious and curious ending, everyone, even the adults, will be spellbound. A great weekend show suitable for families. Age recommendation - 5-9 years old but all welcome
