The £4.6 million refurbishment of The Met in Bury may be well underway however… the show must go on! A new production is set to take place in July for families to enjoy in an outdoor setting.
A production of Arnold’s Big Adventure will be taking place at St Mary’s Flower Park, Prestwich with three shows being held on Saturday 7th July 2016.
Arnold’s Big Adventure features beautiful shadow puppetry, wonderful original music to sing along to and plenty of thrilling surprises along the way. It’s an intimate, interactive production that’s perfect for a child’s first theatre experience and with plenty for parents to enjoy too. Devised, performed and produced by children’s theatre specialist Tessa Bide, who’s performance of The Tap Dancing Mermaid at The Met during February half term delighted audiences.
