Some events for children at Oxford Playhouse to put into your diaries now for the other side of half term (don't forget to book the tickets early!)...
As part of Dancin’ Oxford on Friday 19 to Saturday 20 March, join Josette and her Papa as they dance with their ears, eat a piece of the moon, and meet a toy soldier called Jacqueline in This is a That. This is a magnificent, magical, physical, musical journey about a father and daughter who let their imagination run away with them. Perfect for ages 4 to 7.
Up next on Saturday 27 March, Sounds Like invites 5 to 11 year olds to experience the magic of sound, and help the sound collector in his attempt to create a sound symphony by turning objects into musical instruments and using our surroundings to explore the world. The simple story of three hungry goats and a grumpy old troll is brought to the Studio on Saturday 3 April. Told with puppets, live music, storytelling and singing, Billy Goat’s Gruff is an all time favourite, aimed at 3 to 6 year olds. On Thursday 15 April, To have and to Honk will have you laughing until you cry, with their special blend of amiable chaos, hilarious physical theatre and musical delights – a honkingly good show for ages 3+.
Also not to be missed is How the Koala Learnt to Hug on Saturday 17 April, a charming tale about the magic of family and, of course, the importance of a nice warm hug. On Saturday 24 April join Bob -The Man on the Moon as he vacuums space junk out of craters and enjoys a picnic lunch with Billy the Man on Mars and Sam the Man on Saturn. And last but not least go outside, in a world where a dew drop is the size of a swimming pool, and a flower is as tall as a skyscraper an insect falls in love with a beautiful butterfly in The Bug and the Butterfly on Sunday 25 April.
