Snow Play

What would you do if one year Winter decided to stay and moved into your house? You would have icicles in the kitchen and snow all over your bed! Well, that’s what happens in our snowy spectacular show where you are guaranteed a white Christmas, no matter what the weather or the time of year!

When Mr Green comes back home from his Christmas holidays and finds that Mr White has moved in, it’s the start of a brrrrilliant series of adventures as Mr White makes it snow all over, even inside the house!

All naughty Mr White wants to do is play snowy tricks and have fun but Mr Green hates the mess and can’t stand the cold. Who gets to stay and who has to go away? You can help us decide as you come on stage to make a giant snowman or join in from your seat with our massive snowball fight. In the end though, how cool can Mr White stay when the sun returns?

When Bertie is sent away from the African farm of his childhood to school in England, he leaves behind not only his beloved mother and the beautiful land, swarming with wildlife, but also his best friend – a white lion he rescued as a cub.

Bertie’s struggle to adjust to his new life in harsh, grey England is alleviated only by a chance friendship with the equally lonely Millie and his dreams of his treasured lion, now trapped in a French circus. But their remarkable journey is only just beginning, and the pair are destined to meet again.

The Butterfly Lion combines music, design and puppetry to bring a magical adventure to life: celebrating nature, friendship and the triumph of love.
