CBeebies show, Sarah and Duck, is coming to the Nuffield Southampton Theatres NST Campus on the 2nd and 3rd of June 2018 for a live performance. Sarah and Duck's Big Top Birthday brings the popular characters to life as they plan an epic birthday party. The show is recommended for children between 3 and 7 years of age.
It's Scarf Lady's birthday. Sarah and Duck are joined by the Ribbon Sisters, the Shallots, Flamingo & John and Umbrella as they prepare to throw a very big birthday party for Scarf Lady in their back yard. The whimsical pair have many fans, amongst pre-schoolers and adults it seems.
The show is performed using puppets, and these are melded with storytelling and music. The life-size puppets are based entirely on their television counterparts, they're just a little more three dimensional and look a little more cuddly.
Sarah and Duck's Big Top Birthday is directed by Roman Stefanski, who has been repsonsible for bringing other children's favourites to the stage like Charlie and Lola and Anthony Browne's Gorilla.
