The Children in The Moon

poster small.jpg

Join The Makeshift Ensemble and their travelling teapot of tales on a magical celebration of discovery, courage and diversity.
The Children in the Moon is a wonderfully visual and original takeon centuries old children’s verse, packed with puppetry and livemusic this is an ideal show for all the family.

We tell the story of Zack and Lil using our beautifully hand crafted puppets and our wonderful teapot of tales, a larger than life travelling teamachine which brews fabulous storiesand doubles as a stage on which our
characters can explore, play and bring
their tales to life.

Along side the puppets are two nomadic
storytellers, who introduce the
stories and nurture the yarns as they
unravel.The MakeShift Ensemble, with their
distinct and compelling style, aim to
both discover and celebrate the wonderful things that make us different
and the ties that bind the human family together.
