Silly SquirrelThe Theatre on The Downs
Above Bounds Theatre have created a brand-new ‘pop-up’ show for under 5s and their families to enjoy together this summer.
Deep in the woods on the big oak tree, lives a little squirrel with big ideas. This is Silly Squirrel. Silly Squirrel has never left the tree but longs to explore! So, before the other squirrels are awake, Silly Squirrel conducts a plan to go on their biggest adventure yet! I wonder who they will meet and what they will find out along the way?
Pull up a picnic blanket and join Above Bounds for this playful new story, written in 2020 for the Summer Reading Challenge and now created into a show for 2021, with puppets, gentle interaction and lots of laughs! This is the perfect introduction to theatre for ages 0–7.
Please Note: This performance takes place outside. Please bring warm clothes if it’s cold weather. The theatre has a limited supply of picnic blankets.
Loved how you encouraged the children to use their imaginations
We are Above Bounds, a children’s theatre company based in Plymouth, Devon making exciting shows for children under 11 and their families. We make theatre for young people, with young people, telling big stories and small stories in fun, playful and visually innovative ways.
We believe theatre is for everyone and make events which are affordable, accessible and easy for our audiences to get to. We take our magical kids shows to theatres, community centres, libraries, art galleries, museums and more! Magical moments can happen anywhere, and we like to surprise and mesmerise audiences with our giant puppets, popping up on streets, parks and festivals near you. We perform across the UK, not just in the beautiful county of Devon and our online events reach families across the Globe.
Pay What You Choose
We’ve introduced a flexible pricing scheme for a number of events. Find out more about it here.
- Open Concession – we know these times are extraordinary, so if you don’t have the extra cash right now, don’t worry; book this price range and let us welcome you with open arms.
- Standard – if you can afford to, please book this rate; the extra money you give will support The Theatre on The Downs and the independent artists and companies on its stage, in what is still an incredibly precarious time.
- Pay It Forward – if you’re feeling generous and you have the means, please consider choosing this rate. Each Pay It Forward ticket subsidises two concession tickets, and helps more people experience the delight of watching live theatre.
