Description

The year is 1969 and NASA has just put the first man on the moon. The world is transfixed and everyone is watching, including eight-year-old Maisie Robinson. From the moment she saw man on the moon, Maisie knew that she was destined to be an astronaut. But unknown to Maisie, people had other plans about her future. After all, girls don't do science, do they? Using an amalgamation of storytelling, puppetry and movement, award-winning Ditto Theatre Company invites you to join us in making the impossible possible as one girl battles to become... Rocket Girl!
