Tim Bray Theatre Company presents:

Five Go on an Adventure

Based on the famous adventure stories by Enid Blyton
Adapted for the stage by Tim Bray
Songs by Christine White

Created for ages: 5 – 10
⏱ Show Run Time: approx. 50 – 60min, no interval

Oh, what a marvellous adventure!

Julian, Dick and Anne, their cousin George, and dog Timmy, head off together on an adventure and end up having to solve a dastardly mystery. Along the way they meet some frightfully awful baddies and get into all sorts of scrapes. Luckily, our five heroes are famous for getting out of trouble! With courage, capers and plenty of sandwiches and ginger beer, this Tim Bray Theatre Company show reminds us all that fun, friendship and fortitude always fool the felons! Hoorah!

Costume Parade

Dress up in character! We love to see imaginations running wild and encourage our young audience to dress up as their favourite Famous Five characters. We will take a moment to show off the costumes onstage with a parade at the start of the performance.
