Theatre Hullabaloo: Luna
Wednesday, 13.30 & Thursday, 10.30 - Saffron Hall, Saffron Walden
An enchanting first theatrical experience for 2–5 year olds and their families, about friendship, the moon and being brave in the dark. Luna is bored in the sky with no-one to play with – it’s lonely being the only moon. One night she spots a young boy, Billy, hiding from shadows on his bedroom walls. Luna makes friends with Billy and together they go on a wondrous adventure of light and dark to help him overcome his fear of the night time. Tickets: £10 for adults and £5 for under 18s, available from our website and telephone box office 0845 548 7650.
