Do you remember when our hairy friend Grug visited us in 2016? Now you can find him online. Our friends at Windmill Theatre (who brought us the show Beep last year) have created a new digital platform, Windmill at Home. Jump into a collection of Grug storytime videos and stay iso-fit by following the groovy Grugercise workouts.
Holly and Milly bring you a playful and creative take on nursery rhymes. This Australian all-female produced project is designed to delight babies and pre-schoolers by introducing them to different instruments, songs, numbers, shapes, colours, animals, feelings and more. Each episode sees the duo unwrap a different surprise present that inspires a song or rhyme! Holly and Milly have both performed on our stages, and we know you’ll love them as much as we do.
Did your family see Billionaire Boy in the Playhouse theatre last year? We’ve loved having a number of David Walliam’s children’s books come to life on our stages.
