Tom Thumb - An Exciting Adventure for Families at The Atkinson

THE story of Tom Thumb comes to life in an exciting adventure for 4 to 9 year old children and their families, at The Atkinson, in February 2016.

Long ago when all the world was wood the most fearsome foe was the one that breathed fire…  From the makers of:- 'Chicken Licken' and 'Terry Jones Fairy Tales' comes the epic tale of Tom Thumb, the smallest hero in the world, told with superb puppetry, music and fantastic design.

This tale is always told in times of great change, when we know the world our small ones will live in is going to be a very different 1 than the  1 we know…

Tom Thumb was the very first folk story ever printed in English in 1621, and mixes a legend set in the times of King Arthur with a Shakespearean take on Celtic folklore.

Celebrating 21 years of making theatre for families DNA Puppetry and Visual Theatre's previous productions:- 'Baba Yaga Boney Legs' and 'Puss in Boots' have astounded family audiences in theatres, outdoor events and festivals.  Plus... "When it comes to making children's theatre, it's clear DNA Puppetry and Visual Theatre are part of the upper crust" said

Tom Thumb is part of the 3 for 2 offers on children's theatre running this season. Other events include: Breaking the Ice, Puss in Boots, The Marvellous Menagerie and more!

Tom Thumb is at The Atkinson on Saturday, 6 February 2016, at 2.30pm. Tickets are £8 (£6 children / £24 family).
