Trio of plays for under 5s at Unicorn

First Published 8 March 2012, Last Updated 9 March 2012

The Unicorn theatre has a treat in store for young theatregoers next month with its under fives season, a fortnight of plays from leading children’s theatre companies.

Unicorn favourites Little Angel Theatre, Theatr Iolo and Lyngo Theatre will return to the venue with a trio of new and imaginative plays from 3 to 15 April.

First up is Little Angel Theatre’s production of Goldilocks from 3 to 7 April, served with a delicious twist to the classic tale. Directed by Marleen Vermeulen, the play uses table-top puppetry and musical influences around the world to tell the story of Goldilocks, a young girl who likes to explore the world and experience new things. But this time, when she wanders into an empty house, she finds much more than three bowls of porridge…

Cardiff-based company Theatr Iolo will bring the humorous Ruby Red Tells Tales to the Unicorn on 4 and 5 April. Told using the real words of small children and featuring live music, the play begins with Ruby and her friend Ella waiting impatiently for something to happen. Young audiences can join them in a magical fairy tale world where they meet a timid tiger, a slightly scary spider, and laugh with surprise as the gingerbread man meets a sticky end.

Concluding the season, Lyngo Theatre’s family favourite Egg & Spoon returns to the venue from 10 to 15 April to guide audiences through the four seasons, play peek-a-book in puddles and dance at the butterfly party.

The under fives season is part of the Unicorn theatre’s new Artistic Director Purni Morell’s first season at the London Bridge family venue.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.
