Adapted from the book by Margery Williams. Written and directed by Amy Wyllie. Designed by Becca Gibbs.

But a chance encounter makes him the favourite toy, and with a little magic and a lot of love, he might even become real!
This Spring, Spinning Wheel Theatre brings this beautiful tale life on stage by two actors, inventive puppetry and original songs. A joyful and uplifting tale of magic, friendship and hope, this is a show for all the family to enjoy! Running time approx. one hour. Suitable for ages 4+.
