About The Event
Chiffchaff Children’s Theatre: Short plays of ‘Peace at Last’ and ‘Whatever Next!’ by Jill Murphy
Chiffchaff Children’s Theatre presents a double bill of stage adaptations of two Jill Murphy books, Peace at Last and Whatever Next!.
Peace At Last is gentle adventure story about a daddy bear looking for a quiet place to sleep. Mrs Bear’s snoring and the sounds in the house and garden keep him awake, and when he finally gets back into bed and falls asleep, the alarm goes off…but he starts the day with a smile anyway. In Whatever Next!, Baby Bear wants to go to the moon! He makes a rocket, finds a space helmet, space boots and picnic supplies and off he goes! He meets an owl on the way who shares his journey, and he’s back in time for his bath.
The show starts at 10.30 am with Peace at Last, followed by Whatever Next!, and is around 30 minutes in total. One ticket covers both stories. The show is aimed at children up to 5. All are welcome, including babies. Children under 12 must be accompanied by a fee paying adult, babies in arms are free. There will be seating available but the children will be encouraged to sit on the story time blankets at the front to get the most out of the experience.
