This February half term Tessa Bide Productions returns to celebrate the company's 10th birthday with their beautiful puppetry show for ages 3-8 and their families

12-16 February 2023, 11am & 2pm.

It’s time to hear the Moon’s story one you will NEVER forget…

Gather round gather round for the Moon’s magical mystical story about a tippetty-top tap dancer who he has been watching at night. Marina Skippett creeps out of her house every night to shuffle and stomp on the boardwalk to the sounds of the sea. She can’t tap dance at home anymore since her evil tractor-sized Aunty banned it threatening to feed Marina’s dinners to the dog! But then one moonlit night Marina meets a mysterious watery boy called Leo swimming in the sea and her life is never the same again!

The “truly amazing one woman power house” Tessa Bide brings you her celebrated devised solo production called “just everything a children’s theatre experience should be” (Childplays). There are stunning puppets original live music to sing along to and tap dancing that will make you want to stick 50ps to your shoes and join in! For everyone aged 3 to 133.

“The perfect example of a show where the adults are just as enthralled as the kids.”

★★★★ A Younger Theatre

“If you drew up a checklist of all the things a good children’s show should contain The Tap Dancing Mermaid would tick every box… This is a show for all to enjoy.”
