Now for some details about what you can expect!

************************************************************* 
Performance 1 - Raw Material presents "Unicorn Dance Party" by Sarah Rose Graber & Ruxy Cantir 
Designed by Kenny Miller 
 
You are invited to the best dance party ever!  
Sparkling unicorns Melody and Luna are looking for new pals, and they’ve heard there are some unicorns in your area! So, they’re throwing the best dance party ever, with easy-to-follow dance moves and the ultimate playlist of everyone’s favourite tunes, from Katy Perry to Queen! You are invited to clap your hands, shake your tails and move and groove to some rockin’ jams!  
 
With glittering costumes and visual pizazz, this interactive outdoor show for aspiring unicorns aged 5+ and their families will unlock the joy within us all. Now, let’s just hope the unicorns they’re looking for turn up! 
 
If you like you can bring a blanket to rest on between dances.

Performance 2 - Clydebuilt Puppet Theatre presents "Stories Just In Case" 
New comic, cautionary tales for family audiences 
 
STORIES JUST IN CASE……. You can’t go to the theatre 
STORIES JUST IN CASE ……… You are in the park….or the school playground…….in fact any location where you want to find a story, just in case! 
 
They will be performing two short tales for us: 
RED RIDING HOOD – The Wolf’s Story. The Wolf is very hungry and wants one of the delicious cakes Red Riding Hood has in her basket.  
 
THE FORGOTTEN TREASURE – a man finds a blue flower, then treasure and ‘forgets what the real treasure is’ ...‘FORGET ME NOT…….!’ 
 

************************************************************

Performance 3 - Mischief la-Bas presents "The Fizzicals"  
A brand new walkabout theatre performance  
 
Mischief la-bas' new work, Fizzicals – Mind the Gap sees three alien bodies go on a walkabout in streets, parks and town centres.   The Fizzicals are curiously shaped visitors who engage visually in a Covid safe way with passers-by, in an uplifting experience for all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Intended to ease people back into the joy of live performance through a safe, playful and, by its nature, fleeting, shared event. 
 
Three brightly clad visitors from elsewhere are here to say hello whilst exploring how we bridge the gap between ourselves and others, across language, culture and the great divide of socially distanced space. 
 
Using gesture, mimicry, repetition, unusual body movement and humour – the characters will explore these deep questions in an accessible, fun and light hearted way. 
 
************************************************************ 
Arts and Crafts Activities 
 
Local artist Alison Dawes will be on hand to provide some Covid-friendly arts and crafts activities during your visit.
