We are excited to announce that award-winning Scratch Built Productions have once again joined forces with Proteus Theatre Company to transform the Creation Space into a magical Christmas theatre experience for pre-school children and their families. This will be the third Christmas show from the creators of Santa Town and Father Christmas’s Christmas List.
This is a fully immersive experience as the whole building gets transformed into a magical wonderland! The children and their families are guided on a journey to various different locations, meeting a variety of different characters on the way. There will be interactive activities and you may even get to meet the big man himself!
We spoke with Scratch Built Productions, who told us “The show is suitable for anyone of any age, but pre-school children are the target audience. Lots of theatre shows are not designed for the youngest members of the family and they are left at home. We want to make them feel that they are very much part of the show, and sensory elements are in place to keep even the smallest of minds engaged. Every detail is considered, and the children are encouraged to explore, play, create and interact.
“We believe that children’s theatre needs to be the very best it can be, as for some of the young audience, this is there first ever experience of live theatre! This year we have actors, dancers, musicians and puppeteers, whose previous credits include The Gruffalo, Moomins, War Horse and CBeebies Grandpa in my Pocket.”
Tickets for How do Reindeer Fly? are on sale now, so book now for this special and unique festive treat!
About the show
Have you ever looked up into the sky, and asked yourself the question; how do reindeer fly?
Christmas Eve can be a bit daunting for a young reindeer about to make her first trip around the world.
So many questions… What if I get lost? Will I get hungry on the way? What if I’m afraid of heights!
Everything is ready. The presents are wrapped and Father Christmas’s cloak is back from the dry cleaners. There is just one problem for the young reindeer… how does she fly?
Featuring puppetry, music, dance and sensory elements, experience the story of one young reindeer as she prepares for her first Christmas Eve.
