WHEEE! Lakeside's International Children's Theatre and Dance Festival

Sunday 3 June, 3.30pm and 6pm Monday 4 June, 1.30pm Suitable for 6+ and families (but please note some scenes may frighten under 7s) Running Time: approximately 50 minutes Welcome to a swamp like no other, where there are bickering toads, overbearing fairies and a rather gentle swamp monster. Using fiendishly clever shadow puppetry, and a stunning 3D finale which has audiences screaming with laughter, horror and delight simultaneously, Jeff Achtem’s acclaimed new show is quite simply stunning theatre for audiences of all ages. Following a sell-out, 5 star run at the Edinburgh Festival 2011, we are delighted to be promoting this Total Theatre Award-winning show as part of our 2012 Festival. "A joyous hour of five-star genius" Donald Hutera, The Times "Madly enjoyable" Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
