TV favourites stage live show

Southport Visiter - - For The Family -

THE en­chant­ing world of the hit CBee­bies an­i­mated se­ries, Sarah & Duck, will be brought to life on stage in South­port to­mor­row, in a brand new the­atri­cal ad­ven­ture.

Fea­tur­ing a host of won­der­ful char­ac­ters from the Bafta Award-win­ning TV show, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birth­day will play at The Atkin­son at 1pm and 3pm on Fri­day, June 1.

Join Sarah and Duck, along with all their favourite friends, in­clud­ing The Rib­bon Sis­ters, The Shal­lots, Flamingo and Um­brella, as they plan a cir­cus­themed birth­day party for Scarf Lady in their gar­den.

But, when the weather turns windy and the big top is blown away, will Sarah and Duck be able to save the day?

Told through a fan­tas­tic blend of in­ven­tive pup­petry, charm­ing sto­ry­telling and toe-tap­ping mu­sic, and fea­tur­ing all the fa­mil­iar voices from the CBee­bies se­ries, in­clud­ing Roger Al­lam as the Nar­ra­tor and Les­ley Ni­col as Scarf Lady, Sarah & Duck’s Big Top Birth­day will take fam­i­lies on a mag­i­cal the­atri­cal ad­ven­ture.
