Let’s Play Messing Around


Event Details

Tickets £6 Theatre for little ones – all ages welcome

A fabulous introduction to theatre for those who don’t want to sit still. This show is performed in the theatre on the floor. There will be cushions for comfort.

Derby Theatre presents as part of Making and Believing 
Let’s Play Messing Around 
by Sarah Argent  
with music by Ivan Stott 
designed by Imogen Melhuish 

A magical, musical tale full of mischief and mayhem for nursery children, their parents, teachers and carers. 

Roo is thoughtful, reflective, happy to play alone – absorbed in activities and contemplating what’s going on all around them. Brodie is a force of nature, loves singing loudly and dancing, playing with others and rushing around.  

They meet for the first time.  
They have very different personalities.  
They play very differently.  
Brodie lures Roo out of their shell and into playful mischief!   

Together, Roo and Brodie joyously sing and dance and make up stories and do a few things that are considered ‘very bad behaviour’; but they also learn to share, take turns, compromise, handle their emotions and become good friends. 

Let’s play messing around…do you want to join in? 

Inspired by creative encounters between artists and young children in Derby, Somerset and Surrey as part of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation funded project, Making and Believing.
