An action-packed, interactive adventure, CATCH! is a fun-filled theatre experience for the whole family to enjoy.

Aimed at children over three years old, the 50 minute session uses balls and play to tell a story about making friends and overcoming fears.

Circus, theatre and puppetry meet in this high energy, playful and imaginative take on all things sporty. The cast jump, roll, bounce and throw as they learn to 'look before they leap' while 'having a ball'.
