My, my, what a big imagination you have!
Retrace Little Red Riding Hood’s path in the woods with two little ones as they play a game of ‘what-if’ and pretend! They run and chase each other, taking on different roles but both eager to take on the role of Mr Wolf …or is that...Miss Wolf?
Join the duo as they turn the pages in a light-hearted story filled with new discoveries at every turn. Enter the belly of the wolf and experience the tale of Little Red Riding Hood like never before.

Larry works in an office and he likes it very much. He likes sorting and tidying and generally putting things in order – everything in its place, a place for everything.
But one day, a suitcase suddenly appears at his door…A suitcase with a tiny label and a tiny label with Larry’s name on it. And this suitcase has a mission.
Join Larry in The Secret Life of Suitcases as his world gets turned upside down by a fantastical flying suitcase, taking him further than he ever thought possible. Follow Larry’s journey as he discovers the thrill of adventure and the joy of coming home again.

Join us and learn more about the magical world of dance and ballet! There will also be a meet-and greet-session with the cast after the performance. Come dressed in your favourite costumes!
