Shadow theatre for ages 4 and over

This colourful tale from the Arabian Nights is set in the Middle East: a place of mystery, enchantment and strange, mythical creatures. Large scale contemporary Shadow Puppet theatre tells of a poor street boy who falls hopelessly in love with a Royal Princess.
What magic would he need just to see her again?

Follow his wild and dangerous adventures as he gets caught up in excitement way beyond his control. Find out more about this inspirational and accessible art form after the show.

“Once again our children have been enthralled and inspired with your magical production which demonstrates your skills in story telling, using shadow puppets and creating atmospheric effects. Thank you” .

If you want to change it, please do so and let me know.
