The Many Doors of Frank Feelbad
From the award-winning makers of The Incredible Book Eating Boy, ★★★★★ (Scotsman, 2011). Frank is an inquisitive chap with a big problem: what's happened to Mum? Join Frank on his adventure... to find her. There'll be scavenger hunts, puzzles to solve and even some dancing to dubstep. Dealing sensitively with grief and loss, the show asks how we cope when things go missing. This interactive performance is presented within The Lose-O-Porium - an intimate space where all lost things live, and where Frank's adventures can be enjoyed by small audiences and their grown-ups.
Starcatchers presents Hup created by Hazel Darwin-Edwards and Abigail Sinar in association with the RSNO and Pleasance Kids.
A quirky quartet of playful musicians create an enchanting classical music experience for 0 - 24 month olds and their grown ups. Discover two violins, one cello and one very mischievous raccoon.
Hup is a relaxed and comfortable performance for babies, with the chance to stay and play afterwards.
"Both transfixing and mesmerising, this relaxed and intimate delight of a performance is full of surprises geared right at tiny tots but clever enough to draw in the adults in the room." ★★★★★ THE EDINBURGH GUIDE
Please note that every person attending the show will need a ticket, including babies aged 0 - 24 months. All tickets are priced at £8.00.
