Theatrical treats start with the theatre's monthly Family Day on Saturday 19th March.

The Family Days gives local families the opportunity to experience all elements performing arts with lots of fun-filled free activities and affordable workshops.

Families can join in with the new Comedy School for Kids, bring out their creative side with local artists, follow the story-tellers on a magical adventure and have a go at writing poetry.

As part of the Family Day, Old Mother Hubbard will be performed in the theatre’s studio at 11am and 2pm.

Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to fetch her poor dog a bone, but when she got there, the cupboard was bare... Or was it? The performance is an ideal first theatrical experience for 3 to 6 year olds.

Family entertainment continues with The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie!

Ever wanted to count a Decapus's, legs? Or wondered what a Whistling Pank eats? Would you like to catch a glimpse of the fabled 'Massive Paw', or lick a Tresillian Toad? Or perhaps see a cow that looks like Brian May? Then you've come to the right place! Dr Longitude and his team of 'experts' are here to guide you through a puppet-packed, ludicrously lyrical and magically musical tour of the Imaginary Menagerie's finest exhibits.

This entertaining show runs in the theatres main auditorium on Friday 18th March from 7pm. Tickets are just £10 for adults, £8 for children.

For the little ones, why not take them for possibly their first theatre experience with Handa's Hen? This beautiful and engaging show features 55 stunning puppets all created by hand for this brand new production.

Based on the book by Eileen Browne, this beautiful and engaging show features 55 stunning puppets all created by hand for this brand new production. Join in with Handa and Akeyo as they sing and dance in search of Mondi, meeting a host of colourful animals and birds as they go.

Suitable for ages 2-5. Running time 35 minutes

See Dr. Seuss' classic The Cat in the Hat come to life in this sharp and vibrant stage adaptation of the beloved children's book!

From the moment his tall, red and white striped hat appears around the door, Sally and her brother know that The Cat in the Hat is the funniest, most mischievous cat they have ever met. With the trickiest of tricks and craziest of ideas, he turns a rainy afternoon into an amazing adventure. But what will mum find when she gets home?

Based on the much loved book by Dr Seuss, The Cat in the Hat is a lively and engaging first theatre experience for young children aged 3+.

And finally, don’t miss the charming family musical, How The Koala Learnt To Hug based on the best-selling book by Steven Lee.

Written especially for children aged three and above to enjoy with their grown-ups, How The Koala Learnt To Hug is a warm and wonderful story about picnics and bubbles and the magic of family.

Koalas are the cuddliest critters but just how did the koala learn to hug? That's the question the magical Australian storyteller means to answer as he tries to get his daughter (as well as the children in the audience) to finally give their parents a well-deserved hug. Will he succeed?
