Bertie the Moon Dragon is having a terrible day! Nothing is as it should be. However, all is not yet lost, as with the help of the audience and some wonderful characters along the way to help him, Bertie can ensure that the night will be saved, and all can return just as it should be. This original preschool production aimed at under 5s is a must for families this Fringe. The audience interacts throughout the show with lights, dressing up and lots of percussion to add to the magic of the story.

  • Additional information: Our show is for preschool children however as it is an interactive musical performances we can adapt and change what is required for those performances on the day. We are therefore open to everyone who might enjoy our production. We are a small cast and this will allow everyone to be more involved in what is happening. We can have people moving around during the performance, as long as they are not a danger to themselves or the rest of the audience who will be sitting on stools, on the floor or who will be in wheel chairs. The show is 45 minutes long which will be long enough for concentration levels. Each audience member will be given a props bag which will be full of percussion instruments, sensory lights, scarves and the audience will be asked to participate in using these throughout the show. Carers will be encouraged to work with the audience to help with music, holding and looking at sensory props. There won’t be flashing lights or load bangs as all the percussion instruments are either bells or maracas sounds. The puppets will be hand held and therefore will be available for audience members to stroke and take a good look at. We will adapt what needs to be done on the day for each of these shows to ensure maximum enjoyment for all.
