Easter Fun at the Thameside

THERE are three children’s shows at the Thameside Theatre this Easter

Image Theatre Company return on Thursday 14th April with a stage production of “Stig of the Dump”

Is ‘Stig’ real or is he the product of Barney’s boyhood imagination? Lou sees ‘Stig’, and so do lots of other people, but does this mean they really go back in time to the building of the stone circles? This wonderful musical production of Clive King’s famous story will be a magical and entertaining experience for the whole family.

During the 30 min rehearsal workshop some children will be taught small parts as actors while the whole audience will be rehearsed into the chorus songs. Image are well known from school visits in the area and the audience participation makes their shows very memorable for children aged 6 and upwards.

On Monday 18th April Riverbank productions presents Kenneth Grahame’s “The Wind in the Willows” a timeless tale of “Life, sunshine, running water, woodlands, dusty roads, winter firesides”

With four actors, puppets, original music and lots of joining in! This show is guaranteed to please family audiences especially children aged between four and nine.

On Thursday 21st April CBeebies Presenter Andy Day brings his much loved humour to this high energy, fast-paced children’s comedy :- Andy & Mike’s… Big Box of Bananas!

In a production aimed at 3-11 year olds (and their entire families!!), Andy and long-term comedy partner Mike James create the hilarious, slap-stick and chaotic .

In this talented duo’s ‘fun pad’ appears a magical and mysterious box. The boys make it their mission to find out what’s inside, and go on the adventure of their life.

A colourful journey ensues… taking you every step of the way! Be prepared to meet confused pirates…musical sea life…And ‘extravagant’ all-singing all-dancing air stewards…!

Oh.. if you see Poppy the Pet Porpoise… Will you tell us..? Well… WILL YOU??

Tickets for all three shows are available from the Thameside Theatre on 0845 300 5264 or you can buy online at
