Chicken Licken:

A charming family show is playing at the Lichfield Garrick on Saturday 11th March.


A baby chick is born and thinks the sky is falling down. On the way to tell the King, she meets Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky & Turkey Lurkey, but there's a shocking surprise! Chicken Licken grows up to be the Little Red Hen and asks her friends to help her make bread, but no one wants to play!

Mixed into this recipe of food, puppets and music is the story of Little Red Hen and the sly Foxy Loxy. Will she outwit him and save her stuffing?

This show uses shadow and rod puppetry and has an original musical score by Jon Owen.

Chicken Licken is aimed and children aged 3 and over and is playing at the Lichfield Garrick on Saturday 11th March at 1.30pm and 3.30pm. Tickets cost £10 (adults), £7.50 (children under 16.)

We're Stuck!

Theatre. Maths. Robots.

One Tenth Human & China Plate present a robot-filled interactive theatre show aimed at children aged between 8 and 11.


We’re Stuck! will kick off its new tour from the Lichfield Garrick this March, and is set to take children on a fun, code-cracking adventure to change their whole attitude to learning. Inspired by the extraordinary abilities and limitations of our brain when it comes to maths, We’re Stuck! uses the latest educational neuroscience to explore how we can best grow our grey matter.

Created by theatre-maker Sarah Punshon, in collaboration with an award-winning team, including designer Joanna Scotcher (The Railway Children) and performers Seiriol Davies (star of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe smash hit How to Win Against History) and Daniel Bye.

Ever got terribly stuck on a problem? Ever made a stupid mistake and felt like a fool? Then this show is for you. Young adventurers will go on a special tour deep into the heart of Volcano Industries where they meet cutting edge scientists struggling with some unusual and extremely tricky problems in their top-secret research laboratory.

WARNING: May contain robots.

The show was developed through test workshops with the help of Maths on Toast, a charity that was founded to tackle the lack of opportunities for families to have fun doing maths in their local communities.

We’re Stuck! is playing at the Lichfield Garrick from Wednesday 22 to Saturday 25th March 2017 at 10.30am and 1.30pm. Tickets cost £15 (adults) and £12 (children) and can be booked by calling box office on 01543 412121
