This year our play for children has a very simple environmental message. We must look after, and protect the world we live in.
Journey back in time with ‘Tumshie’ the jester and join the magical creatures who inhabit the beautiful land of Alban.
But, there are also evil, and very stupid creatures living there who hate all things in nature, who don’t care if the water is contaminated or the trees are dying, and want to destroy it forever!
As the audience walk around the venue – the stunning Dr. Neil’s Garden, they sing songs, and find clues on their quest to save the planet from destruction.
