This is the 8th original theatre show for families Upstairs at the Sydenham Centre since 2017. From the same team that brought you The Little Mermaid and Other ‘Tails’, The Three Little Pigs Go West and the free panto Cinderella at Christmas, we’ve added the writing and performance skills of Blue Mountain Theatre Company’s Lavern Archer – previously seen as Miss Prism in Spontaneous Productions’ The Importance of Being Earnest in 2011. With direction and choreography by Spontaneous regular Hjalmar Nordén and original songs by Paul Tornbohm expect a fun-packed, thrilling story of adventure, rivalry and friendship.
