I Spy With My Little Eye

Saturday 1 April 2023, 2:30pm

The People's Theatre Company presents 'I Spy With My Little Eye' by Steven Lee.

For Molly's sixth birthday her parents want to throw her the perfect party. They don't have a lot of money but what they do have is a lot of love and, if truth be told, a lot of clutter.

Fortunately you can make an absolutely fantastic game of 'I Spy' out of love and clutter and it just so happens that Molly – and her dog, Bingo – like nothing better!

So consider yourself cordially invited to join us for what promises to be a truly magical day of fun and laughter, complete with an amazing birthday treasure hunt, all your favourite sing-along songs and lots of interactive games – including Molly's favourite: 'I Spy With My Little Eye!'

A sweet surprise and photos with the birthday girl will be available at the end of the party so adults should bring along their cameras to capture the smiles.

Based on the brand new picture book by Steven Lee ('Don't Dribble On The Dragon', 'How the Koala Learnt To Hug') and brought to you by the creators of 'There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly', this adorable family musical celebrates everything great about being a kid, and everything great about having one.

Find some great activities on The People's Theatre Company website so that you can join in when you attend the show.

This is a 55-minute show with no interval.
