Forget the beaches of Spain or Cornwall, Chickenshed’s summer travel plans are rather more ambitious as it prepares to zoom off to space in a new out of this world show taking off later this month.
Intergalactic adventure Darnaby’s Space Race will play at the acclaimed children’s venue from 30 July to 8 August and is suitable for audiences from newborns to six-years-old.
Set on Barnaby’s Sports Day, disaster strikes when the youngster gets a cold so sniffly he can’t even say his own name let alone run the egg and spoon race.
It looks set to be the worst day ever until a delegation of aliens arrives in search of a legendary athlete who can help them win their very own race against their arch rivals! Barnaby sets off on an adventure through space as he attempts to save the day.
Darnaby’s Space Race will be joined on 6 and 7 August by a companion piece designed specially for the littlest audience members.
Planet Play is described as a “fun and interactive sensory session” for babies to three-year-olds featuring characters and themes from the play.
Full details of both productions can be found on Chickenshed’s website.
