The Horse and Bamboo: Puss in Boots

I’ve booked in at our local theatre, The Horse and Bamboo, to see Puss in Boots! Hooray! It’s one of the first Christmas events I’ve booked and it was a very reasonable £42 for all of us.

The Boo is a really lovely, family friendly theatre and Puss in Boots is a show by Marcello Chiarenza which has been adapted and performed by CBeebies’ Patrick Lynch. It’s aimed at kids 4+ but The Boo is a lovely safe space and they provide cushions for the little ones to sit on and there is even a separate little room where they have a craft space and tea/coffee and biscuits so it’s easy to take little ones out for a few minutes if they are struggling to keep still.


Here’s the information:

Would you trust a talking cat? You never know, he might turn you from a pauper to a prince just like the hero of this story, brought to vivid life on our incredible sloping stage by Patrick Lynch from Cbeebies. Using smoke and mirrors and hidden trapdoors he’ll show you how this sure-footed feline fools both the King and the Ogre to put his master at the top. With a host of puppets, a working windmill and an avalanche of fruit and nuts come and see this classic furry tail, it’s the cat’s whiskers!

I contacted the theatre for some photographs and have permission to share these:

I’m so excited! Doesn’t he look different from his TV personality?

I will make sure I get a review up when we have been!

PS I’ve not been compensated for this, just trying to support our local theatre and share our Christmassy plans 🙂
