Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th October: MY SHADOW AND ME
2pm
Chaplinesque comedy and ingeniously inspired shadow theatre, all in the hands....quite literally….of puppeteer Drew Colby. How many animals can you count in one show in this delightfully imaginative and fun adventure?

Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th October: DO YOU HAVE A SHADOW AFTER SHOW WORKSHOP
3pm - £3
Do you have a shadow? The answer is “YES” because everyone does! What can you make with your shadow? Can you make YOU? Can you make a worm…a butterfly? Join the after show workshop with Drew Colby, learn how to make hand shadow puppets!

Monday 15th October: GHOST SHADOWS
10.30am - £6.50
Make a shadow puppet for Halloween; a skeleton, a ghost or a witch and then tell a ghostly shadowy story on the shadow screen. Of course, you don't have to make a Halloween character at all – you can make anything your imagination can think of – an elephant with a swinging trunk, a mermaid with a swishing tail, or even a giant whale! The puppets will look great too as Halloween decorations in your window as the nights draw in.
