Out of Hat

Details

A new show from the creative geniuses that brought to you the glorious family shows Shoe Baby, Flyaway Katie, Arthur’s Dream Boat, and Penguin.

When Doris and Delilah wake up to find something strange and sparkly has fallen from the sky, they are inspired to put on the world’s greatest magic show!

But HOW do you make real magic happen? What ingredients do you need and who can help them?

Along the way, they encounter some fabulous characters; a transformative moth, a band of musical frogs, an artistic spider and a sassy glow-worm who all help to create their dream.

Will the conjuring trick work and will anything ever come out of the hat?

A story about friendship and true magic. Full to the brim with lively songs.

A spectacular theatre experience for all ages – especially 2- 8 year olds.
