The Girl and the Gi­raffe

From 31 May: Gi­raffe isn’t feel­ing very well so Girl tries ev­ery­thing to make him feel bet­ter; putting on ban­dages and bak­ing a tasty cake, but she has to learn that some­times we need a dif­fer­ent kind of plas­ter when we are ac­tu­ally sad. Beau­ti­ful pup­petry and sto­ry­telling in a sen­si­tive show about well­be­ing and friend­ship. Suit­able for three to six year olds. Please check for times. Tick­ets £9-£12.50. www.polkathe­atre.com. Polka Theatre, 240 The Broad­way, SW19 1SB. T: 020- 8543 4888. Off map. Sta­tion: Wim­ble­don.

The Man Who Knows it All

From 31 May: Is it pos­si­ble to know ev­ery­thing? The man who knows it all seems to think it is. Two per­form­ers and a mu­si­cian go on a quest in search of ev­ery­thing it is pos­si­ble to know. Along the way it be­comes ev­i­dent that the ques­tions and an­swers just keep com­ing, es­pe­cially when the au­di­ence gets in­volved. Know­ing ev­ery­thing is more dif­fi­cult than we imag­ine. A trib­ute to not re­ally know­ing much about any­thing, an awk­ward and hap­less man and his sidekick fail spec­tac­u­larly again and again in front of a mer­ci­lessly cu­ri­ous au­di­ence. For four to 10 year olds. Please check for times. Tick­ets £12-£18. www.uni­cornthe­atre.com. Uni­corn Theatre, 147 Too­ley St, SE1 2HZ. T: 020-7645 0560. E10. Sta­tion: Lon­don Bridge.

My First Bal­let: Cin­derella

6-20 May: Chil­dren’s show based on the clas­sic fairy­tale. Cin­derella is tor­mented by her step­sis­ters and she can only dream of at­tend­ing the prince’s glam­orous ball.

Red Rid­ing Hood and the Wolf
