How The Koala Learnt To Hug

Showing on Sat 22 May

Showing times: 13:00 - 14:00 15:30 - 16:30

Family Duration: 1 hours
Everyone knows that koalas love a cuddle but, the truth is, that wasn't always the case. So how exactly did the koala learn to hug?

Ten years after the publication of Steven Lee's best selling book, Karen The Koala and her fabulous furry friends are back to answer that age old question and remind us once again why there's nothing quite as wonderful as a nice warm hug.

With a feast of games, giggles and songs this charming family musical first appeared in 2010 and has been loved by children and their grown ups ever since. Now, in this updated, Covid Proof production the love, laughter and magic returns for a limited season.

As an extra treat, author Steven Lee will be available to sign copies of How The Koala Learnt To Hug and Other Australian Fairytales which will be on sale at a specially reduced rate after the show.

"★★★★★ A perfect introduction to theatre for children, full of audience participation and feel-good factor." -
Sheffield Star

"★★★★★ Filled to overflowing with the feel-good factor. A pure, undiluted joy" - The Cornishman

"★★★★ By turns funny, charming and off the wall. This family show is a great introduction to the theatre with just the right balance of sitting listening and taking part – and the children adored it."- **** Bristol Guide

Age range - 3 to 103!
