What The Ladybird Heard: LIVE ON STAGE
Darlington Civic Theatre
Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 May 2014
Coming to Darlington Civic Theatre is a delightful show based upon a modern classic children's story.
Based on the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson, the best-selling author of The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom, comes What the Ladybird Heard. A glittering family treat with live music, sing-a-long songs, puppetry and plenty of audience participation.
Two crafty robbers, one tiny ladybird, and a whole farmyard of fun!
Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len have a cunning plan to steal the farmer’s fine prize cow. But they reckon without the tiniest, quietest creature of them all: The Ladybird has a plan of her own!
Join the woolly sheep, the hairy dog, the fat red hen and the dainty dog in this brand-new stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson & Lydia Monks’ colourful farmyard adventure. The show uses live music, rhythmic text, repetition and animal noises to encourage audience interaction with fun in mind.
