Treat your little monsters

THE popular Blunderbus Theatre Company return to the Corn Exchange this coming half-term holiday, with their brand new family show My Pet Monster and Me. This funny, big-hearted story has lots of fun for little monsters aged three-plus and their grown-ups.

Sophie Bucket lives on a farm with her dad, but she’s a lonely little girl who longs for a friend to share her adventures with. When she finds an egg one day, she keeps it warm and... out pops a cuddly, toothy, burpy, baby MONSTER. There’s trouble ahead, as this big baby monster just won’t stop growing.

Join them down on the farm for adventures with Sophie and her new friend George, the most lovable monster in the land. There’s puppetry, music, songs and plenty of laughs.

Since 1998, Blunderbus have been creating magical theatrical experiences for children and their families all around the world. The company performs to more than 200,000 children each year, touring to theatres, arts centres, schools and festivals across the UK and as far afield as Malaysia, Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore, with critically acclaimed shows such as How to Catch a Star, The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark and Giraffes Can’t Dance.

So why not join Sophie and Georgeat the Corn Exchange on Thursday, February 18? There are two shows – at 11.30am and 2.30pm. Visit www.cornexchangenew.com
