An adorable little musical about a caterpillar who wishes she could be a butterfly. She tries fluttering her legs, but that just makes the animals laugh. ‘You’ll never be a butterfly,’ they say. ‘You’ve got no wings!’ Trying to be kind, they suggest that perhaps she’s a ‘flutterpillar’, although of course there is no such thing. ‘Flutterpillar’ is ideal as part of a minibeast topic.
A delightfully picturesque musical for all seasons, which features Tattybogle, a lovable scarecrow who has a head full of straw and cheerful thoughts. The rain is his music, the birds and animals his friends and the wind is his dancing partner. Then one day the Autumn wind is so strong that Tattybogle is blown to pieces. All that is left of him is an old stick, but he never loses hope.
Great shows for 8 to 12 year-olds to perform
