Just a quickie for me today. This posts doesn't have all of my usual random musings, but instead is a roundup post of a the pre-school theatre options on offer over the next few months. There aren't many big shows which are suitable for pre-schoolers, but after seeing Stickman, The Scarecrow Wedding and The Hungry Caterpillar all advertised recently I thought I'd pull together all of the offerings from local theatres so they were in one place. I've loved looking at all of the trailers, some of the staging looks fab.
If you have pre-schoolers then half terms can be a bit difficult. Lots of toddler groups or baby classes take a break during school holidays, and soft play centres or museums are often much busier as the older kids are off. If you are looking for some pre-school events during half term then you should check out Alnwick Playhouse. Their childrens program, Creative Cocoon is brilliant. There are lots of quirky shows, and a regular playgroup which looks so sweet. I wish that I lived closer as I would visit much more often.
