It’s All Greek! A Morning of Marvellous Myths for Children

Acclaimed children’s storyteller, Michael Loader, is coming to town, bringing with him a joyous cacophony of magic,  mythology, and buffoonery.  Through theatre, song, and a lot of participation, Michael will both weave and unravel the classic tale of The Odyssey in this spectacular back-to-back children’s event, Glorious Greeks!

Divided in two, the first part of the morning will let children build their own incredible puppets in the group Playshop, and devise a whole new theatrical Odyssean adventure that will be included in the grand finale show; Glorious Greeks! After the merrymaking, the story will begin. Told by Michael as “Mr. Oddy”, a descendant of Odysseus himself, children will learn how to trick, thwart, overcome, survive and thrive like a true Greek hero. Mesmerising and spellbinding, all attendees will be transported into a bygone land of monsters, gods, and questionable escape plans…

This will be an enchanting and memorable morning, thrilling children with opportunities to create and imagine alongside a master storyteller with a knack for conjuring the most fantastical tales.

Tickets can be booked for the Playshop only, the Glorious Greeks performance only, or BOTH together at a discounted price! Hurry to avoid disappointment, because we have limited spaces, and so much fun to be had!
