Mole and Gecko: The Show!

A mole and a gecko are starting a journey.

With songs and with poetry too.

A quest for adventure – a quest with a duck!

And all that they’re missing is YOU!

Mole sings songs and lives at the edge of the water. Gecko likes rap and lives on the warm rock. These unlikely friends are about to set off on a journey down the river on a boat with no name, but they need your help…

Mole and Gecko is an interactive rap musical that the audience (that’s you!) help create. Join in with their unlikely pair as they make up new songs, tell stories and meet a host of unusual characters.

With loads of laughs and jokes throughout, this show is perfect for under 8s (and their grown-ups too).

They operate a strict policy of fun, friendly and relaxed at all our venues – so get ready to shout out ideas and get involved in the fun.

Here’s a sneak peek of what’s happening next week…

Paul Zerdin’s Puppet party

Paul Zerdin and his dysfunctional puppet family are back by popular demand with a brand-new UK tour. As well as starring everyone’s favourites Sam, Albert and Baby, there’ll be his new bodyguard, an urban fox, some hilarious audience participation – and a talking ice cream – all using a mixture of master puppeteering, state of the art animatronic wizardry and a unique blend of edgy comedy.

It’s a quirk of British theatre that a man can get a standing ovation for spending the best part of 75 minutes on a stage talking to himself. It goes without saying that Paul’s skills are top notch – there’s not a hint of movement from his lips and he has a strong command of a range of different voices but it’s his control of the puppets and sense of timing that brings his characters to life!

Don’t miss out on your chance to see the winner of America’s Got Talent and one of Britain’s finest entertainers.
