The Velveteen Rabbit
"When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become Real." - Margery Williams
The Velveteen Rabbit is a heart-warming story about a very shy toy rabbit who longs for nothing more than to become real.
He spends his days waiting patiently in the Child's playroom, watching all the other toys being played with and dreaming of being picked up and loved. And then, one night, he is rediscovered and all his hopes start to come true…
Cat & Hutch use puppetry and original song, to bring to life Margery Williams' classic tale of a toy rabbit's wish to become 'real' and shows how one child makes this happen through love, imagination and a bit of nursery magic

The Remarkable Rocket
"I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying" - Oscar Wilde
There's a lot of hustle and bustle at the palace as everyone prepares for the royal wedding.
The musicians are tuning up, the courtiers are getting the crowds ready and the king has been "entertaining" everyone with his rather interesting flute playing.
It's the biggest event of the year and everyone has been talking about it...even the fireworks! This is their moment to sparkle and shine and impress the crowds with their pyrotechnic acrobatics.
But there's one firework who believes this event is all about him...The Remarkable Rocket. And he'll tell anyone who'll listen about how remarkable he will be, for he loves to hear himself talk - it is one of his greatest pleasures.
But will he be able to perform on the night? Or will his sensitivity get the better of him?
'Twas The Night Before Christmas
"He had a broad face and a little round belly that shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly." - Clement Clarke Moore
’Twas the night before Christmas and Mr and Mrs Moore were settling down for a nice winter's nap, excitedly awaiting St Nick's arrival. But with the storm outside brewing ever stronger, would St Nicholas make it?
Mother Christmas takes us back to 1823 to tell the untold part of this classic tale. After a fearsome storm snaps the reins of St Nick's sleigh and some of the reindeers fly away, it looks like Christmas might be ruined. Luckily a couple of brave elves are on hand to jump into their Elf-Mobile and travel across the globe, in search of the lost reindeer. But will they find them in time to save Christmas?
An interactive adaptation of the classic Christmas poem, "A Visit from St Nicholas" by Clement Clarke Moore.
