Touring Spring 2023

About the show

An interactive and immersive theatre experience for children ages 2 – 5 and their families. Set inside Egg Box’s special dome which provides the perfect intimate environment for children to get lost in their imagination as we take them on a colourful and playful journey. 


Baby bird is tired of being told what to do. Baby bird wants to explore. Baby bird more than anything wants to fly the nest. But… baby bird just isn’t big enough yet. Perhaps with help from friends in the audience baby bird can learn how to be independent, and when to ask for help. With sights, sounds, tastes, smells, touch and lots of play.

 About the show

In the colourful Scraps Lagoon, Lucy Limpet’s feeling that she doesn't belong fuels her urge to cross the ocean and explore far away shores. Lucy and her friends embark on an adventure to find a new home when theirs comes under threat from poluted waters caused by humans. But trouble is afoot when the evil Mayor of Scraps Lagoon sabotages their adventure in a deluded scheme to hold onto control of the crumbling lagoon. Join the gang on their epic adventure in an exciting tale of bravery, trust, friendship and love. Musical fun for the whole family!
