The Children in The Moon - a new family play for summer 2018
They had no idea where they came from. All they knew was that they lived on the hill, and that the old man of the hill called them Zack and Lil.
They could have had a most wonderful time playing all day if it had not been for carrying all that water.
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 take on centuries old children’s verse, packed with puppetry and live music this is an ideal show for all the family.
Watch the promo animation below with original song written for the play by Laurence Aldridge!
